" New York transplant Roberta Baum has a way of bewitching audiences with unusual phrasing, repertoire choices, guttural effects and syllables calling to mind ancient languages. Endlessly suggestive and inventive, sensual and energetic, she breathes with a musical verve that evokes a fiery lust for freedom we may have forgotten we have. Yet behind the free spirit lies a wealth of serious intent: Roberta has spent some serious time with the work of vocal greats like Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan and Betty Carter. "

" Roberta Baum is one of the most fascinating vocal stylists to emerge in many years, with an exceptional feeling for rhythm and textures and a commanding sense of swing."
