5 STARS (CD of the week) …"Carmen Souza is one of a kind—an original as rare as a throat singer and as exquisite as a vocalist who combines the best of Billie Holiday and Elis Regina—whose time has certainly come."…
~ Raul da Gama, Latin Jazz Network, USA
 
 8/10 … "In a live setting, Souza is robustly expressive, the childlike wonder of her voice extolling the boundaries, not just pushing them. And through it all, she never loses the notes of grace that make her one of the most expressive vocalists on the scene today"…
~ Jason Motz, VIVASCENE.COM, CA
 
…"Whether you are under the sky of Paris, or in the basement of the label, ending up with Carmen Souza is a real experience... A moment of grace, a perfect moment."…
~ Le Cargo!, FR
 
…"Souza’s vocal matches the cool wail of Parker’s sax, and the accordion mixes world sounds with bop licks..."
~ James Reaney, The London Free Press, CA
 
…“Live at Lagny Jazz Festival” by is a spellbinding, exceptional release and , on this evidence, Carmen Souza emerges as one of the most exciting talents in contemporary African jazz."… ~ AFRICANJAZZ.INFO by Ben Robertson
 
…"This live recording and video showcases the stunning talent of one of the greatest jazz vocalists of our time…. impressive vocal modulations and flavorful African roots… one of the most talented and innovative vocalists in the present-day jazz and world music scene whose style and ability knows no bounds."… ~ WORLD MUSIC CENTRAL, USA
 
…"Listening to Carmen's soulful vibrant rhythms in concert is like being engulfed in a sea of magnetic energy filled with softness, tranquility and thrill. An absolute joy to see on stage, your mind doesn't drift, your eyes don't deviate and most importantly, your smile doesn't fade when Carmen sings…"
~ Live review at Regattabar Boston, SODADE MAGAZINE, Nuria Chantre, USA

…"Le coup de coeur reviens à définitivement à Carmen Souza qui pose son Jazz façon Cap-Vert, avec une virtuosité et une facilité déconcertante. On revisite d’ailleurs une partie du répertoire classique du Jazz avec une magnifique version de « Song For My Father » de Horace Silver et « My Favorite Things« ."…
