Listening to the jazz singer
is like imbibing a potent cocktail whose flavor changes
as you drain the glass. In the first couple of sips,
the predominant taste is the sparkling wine that has drifted to the top,
for Ms. Stravelli’s bright, rippling voice exudes a natural effervescence.
Before long, it darkens, and the heady liquor underneath kicks in.

"As she dipped and swooped, twirling notes and phrases with a confidence and playfulness that recalled Ella Fitzgerald in her prime, Ms. Stravelli began interpreting lyrics with a ferocity that her vocal pyrotechnics accentuated."
--Stephen Holden, New York Times
