The New York Times
'Mariah Carey may be mainstream America's idea of a diva, but Europeans take a more eclectic view of the role. The Englishwoman Sarah Jane Morris has earned her queenly status over twenty years of activity.'
'Those in-the-know rate her as one of the world's great jazz-soul vocalists of the past twenty years and more - Sarah Jane Morris, Queen of Jazz-Soul'.
'When that throaty, extraordinarily-deep voice comes booming out of that pale, auburn-haired face, it's a bit like the possession scene from The Exorcist. If you could hear voluptuousness, it would sound like Sarah Jane Morris... [her voice] harangues, then caresses; invites intimacy, then soars away.'
'Sarah Jane Morris could not sing an insincere note if she tried.'
'Her excellent voice soars and swoops with the agony and ecstasy of the delta and smoky Chicago clubs.'
The Gazette, Montreal
'Morris does not interpret soul. She is soul, with all its passion and pain, joy and sorrow, hard times and highs.'
