"All hail Ellen Andersson, the best sort of blasphemous resurrection. The audacious Swedish jazz singer with the voice of tissue paper enrobing a jewel is probably the best representation of new jazz coming out of Europe [...] She wouldn't dream of hiding behind the tones of the horn or the back beat of the rhythm section. Her phrasing emphasizes the highs and lows where she deems necessary; it's as if she's all alone and we're imagining a band."

- Carol Banks Weber, AXS (USA)

”Suddenly Ellen comes along with a debut album which has to be considered a sensation. She masters the vocal jazz-palette in its whole, from the intimacy of Billie Holiday to the power of Nancy Wilson. A vocalist has rarely been this wished-for. Finally!"

- Johan Norberg, Magazine VI (translated from Swedish)


”Ellen Andersson was born in 1991. That young, it deserves to be pointed out, since she is already singing along her own path through the jazz tradition."

- Bengt Eriksson, Lira Music Magazine (translated from Swedish)


”Ellen Andersson chooses to make it both easy and difficult, within the same phrase. [...] but with her amazing voice, she makes it sound as easy as an exhalation”

- Mikael Timm, Swedish National Radio P1, Culture News (translated from Swedish)


”The Swedish jazz vocalist, Ellen Andersson, is pretty young. 25 summers. However, her debut album, "I'll Be Seeing You", shows that she is not only a remarkable talent, but also a human being with remarkable artistic weight. [...] Her debut album is so outstanding, that I consider it the most noteworthy and promising since Diana Krall's debut album in 1993.”

- Ivan Rod, GAFFA Music Magazine (Denmark) (translated from Danish)

 

”It's called "The Ellen Andersson Quartet" for a reason. She places her voice on equal footing with her guitar trio, led by Anton Forsberg, with bassist Hannes Jonsson and drummer Sebastian Brydniak.” […]

[…] ”Andersson hits with a combination of talent and elan that is likely to make quite the impressing.”

- C. Michael Bailey, All About Jazz
