"Amazingly, this is the debut recording for Ross.... she reworks these classics with her incredibly rich and imaginative vision... puts her versatile pipes to good use. "Haven’t We Met” starts the listen with bright keys in a playful waltz atmosphere as Ross sings with a soaring, expressive delivery... On “Laura”, Ross really gets creative with her art. Late highlights include the bouncy fun of the glorious “Come To Baby, Do!” and the elegant “Over The Rainbow”... “Live For Life” as Ross exits with a flawless execution and a timeless appeal." Tom Haugen, Take Effect
"Suzanna Ross is heard in winning form through her enjoyable set, an easily recommended CD that gives listeners the perfect opportunity to discover the warm singer... it is difficult not to be impressed by both her inviting voice and her versatility. There are no throwaways on this set... and sings quite effectively in French." Scott Yanow, jazz journalist/historian, LA Jazz Scene
"She had me at Bewitched! Not the Songbook standard that Suzanna Ross' clever album title humorously references, but a snappy, sexy, and swinging bass vocal-driven twist on the classic TV show theme, little heard lyrics and all... wonderfully fresh interpretations... not only an engaging debut but a true master class in jazz eclecticism." Jonathan Widran, The JW Vibe
"...knows her way around a world of songs... The debut of a vocalist you'll love spending some time with, this record finds her nice enough to bring her New York stomping grounds to your ear buds. A thoroughly enjoyable set." Chris Spector, Midwest Record
"An enthralling collection," Anne Carlini, Exclusive Magazine
"...this kind of vocal jazz puts the "ultra" in "ultra cool." I give Suzanna and all her players a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED rating, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) score of 4.99 for this splendid debut release. ...fifteen superbly performed jazz vocals Suzanna presents for your jazz joy." Rotcod Zzag, Contemporary Fusion Reviews
"Her voice may recall Peggy Lee: attractively husky in a way that, in the less sunny selections suggests vulnerability or, depending on the song, a wounded but valiant spirit... the cheery theme from the 1960s TV sitcom "Bewitched," with the rarely heard lyric... it's a charmer—a word that can pretty much apply to the singer herself and her set of songs. Pianist Gregory Toroian's expert and sensitive arrangements are supportively with her phrase by phrase, very much painting mood pictures exquisitely, especially on "Laura"... Emotion, especially yearning, comes through in the several tracks that have the songstress crooning in French... "Mr. Wonderful" is Suzanna Ross at her cozy, caring best... I am a bit more bewitched with every spin of this set." Rob Lester, Talkin' Broadway
"One fine voice sharing many favorite songs...this is a fine intimate conversation with a solid artist," Grady Harp, Amazon
"You are in for a treat with this new show, Bewitched....a song for every taste." Theater Pizzazz
"A magical journey... passionate," Broadway World
