"Fashions may change but quality is timeless, which explains
how the stylish Elaine Delmar has survived the passage of so many
vocal trends over the years. A favourite with both Jazz and Cabaret
audiences, she continues to set the standard for sophisticated
rich-toned interpretations of the Great American Songbook."
London Evening Standard
"Among the multitude of good jazz singers in Britain today, there is not one who can surpass Elaine Delmar. Few understand the repertoire as well as well or express it with such dynamic simplicity. When she sings a song as plainly as she can, it still emerges gently swinging, imbued with the spirit of jazz. She builds each performance with sure- footed musicianship." The Observer
