“This is the most enjoyable female jazz vocal CD that I have heard in a long time. What is it about Australian girls that makes them such delightful jazz vocalists?

 

“Miss Harris shows that rare skill in that she understands the lyrics and interprets them with relevance.”

Jazzline Review | Anita Harris Jazz

"... all professionally presented by Melbourne songstress Anita Harris. Anita gets strong support from a tight rhythm section with guest instrumentalists providing sympathetic accompaniment."

CD Review, Here's Looking at You
-     Don Brow, Australian Jazz Scene, May 2013.

“Anita has become quite well known around the traps for her impeccable vocal style and here is her latest CD of well known standards interspersed with less well known but good songs that her fans will enjoy very much. Anita sings beautifully with spot-on accuracy in pitch and diction.”

"The presentation maintains a gently appealing rhythm, sometimes unexpected adventurous tempos and shadings while exploiting an eminently suitable selection of great songs ... It all emphasises Harris's feeling for her music, matching the instrumentalists in the art of highlighting through understatement."

"“She has a strong fluid contralto which she employs to produce a delightfully creamy sound and she swings ably and effortlessly. … I liked this set a lot and she is clearly someone to keep an eye and ear on in the future.”
