Outstanding vocal range and control…Delmar swings down to her fingertips.
…makes the art of swinging a tune seem effortless…
(her) glowing, cello-like phrases…are as seductive as ever.
Elaine Delmar truly defines the word class...
Humphrey Lyttelton, BBC Radio 2
Among the multitude of good jazz singers in Britain today, there is not one who can surpass Elaine Delmar.
Dave Gelly, Observer
A remarkable talent, a deliciously mellow jazz sound that shimmers with clarity and resonance...Delmar’s vocals capture the heart and soul of the lyric.
Paul Vale, The Stage
Her style is a mixture of Broadway musical punch and jazz-inflected subtlety. She has the belting defiance of a torch singer at times and the knowing raised eyebrow rasp of a blues artist, but also a hushed, confiding intimacy where it is appropriate, it is a blend that invites the widest possible audience.
John Fordham, The Guardian
