“Classically trained but steeped in the sounds and rituals of Chicago jazz,” vocalist Tammy McCann finds “new tones and colors, fresh shadings and tints in an instrument that already ranks among the most alluring in jazz,” commanding a “luxuriant, supple, larger-than life” voice “that inspires wonder” (Chicago Tribune). “McCann’s remarkable range of color, texture, tone and nuance very nearly overwhelmed the ear…dusky tones, tautly controlled vibrato and phrases that seemed to stretch on forever… there was no denying the fascination of hearing McCann wend her way through a maze of ensemble sound…rich in throaty low notes and raspy, gritty growls. Now that’s singing” (Chicago Tribune).

“She stepped up to the mic and into the hearts of everyone in the room” (JazzInside)
