Toronto Jazz Festival Live Review

(c) Robert M Saxe

"Souza is an accomplished musician and singer who brings a jazz sensibility to all she does. Her big range, solid pitch and vocal sure-footedness count her among the finest singers anywhere, but she wasn’t all about vocal gymnastics. In fact, some of the most satisfying moments for me as a listener came when her drummer, switched from kit to cajon (a box drum played with the hands) the bass player (her long-time collaborator Theo Pascal) picked up the double bass and Souza sat down at the piano. Then we experienced the rich warmth of her voice and soul as she told us stories from her home."
