“Lisa Sokolov delves into the magical possibilities of the voice and the beauty and mystery of words. A Quiet Thing … extends the power of her earlier recordings, continuing her progression towards the majestic and ecstatic “silence” of the universe. a musical adventurer … Sokolov is a master … stunning … powerful … funky and ever-evolving … breathtaking” Donald Elfman All About Jazz

“As far removed stylistically from the reigning royalty of female jazz vocalists as John Coltrane is from Grover Washington … exceptionally expressive, dramatic, ecstatic … masterful … stunning, life-affirming … This is jazz vocalizing filled with passion and commitment.” “Presence” receives five stars ***** “Masterpiece” Best of the Year DownBeat Magazine and makes DownBeat’s Best of the Decade list
