Don Heckman International Review of Music

An audacious artist [who] flouts genre limitations, singing songs for the love of it and delivering an inventive, thrilling, appealing musical vision. 
• Richardson, Blogcritics 

She fills torch songs with sensual longing, then makes abstract vocal improvisations feel intimate as meaningful conversation. . . highly recommended for anyone who believes in the timeless essence of cool. 
• Graham, Tucson Citizen 

. . . her warm, open rapport with the audience allowed us to willingly enter into her world of music . . . She pulls you into her spell. . . Keep an eye out for her name. She's well worth a visit to whatever nightspot is hosting her.
• Hall, BistroAwards.com

The Andrea Wolper Quartet gave an exciting and amazingly creative performance to a full house.
• Charlottesville Jazz Society

One of New York’s Shining Voices. . .  a singer’s singer,  a writer of music and stories who weaves magic.
• Quinn, MetroMedia Radio

"TranceFormation in Concert" is a scintillating demonstration of the art of improvisation. . . an exhilarating sonic image of where jazz (and jazz singing in particular) is located today and hints at the possible routes it might take tomorrow.
