JAZZ WEEKLY: “Her velvety voice caresses Ivan Lins’ “Love Dance” and Tom Jobim’s Quiet Nights of Quiet Stars” with Brazilian charm, and makes them fit in like a puzzle along with swing era pieces like “If Dreams Come True.” She does some marvelous things with Rogers and Hammerstein’s “Happy Talk” and sounds convincingly vulnerable on “How Long Has This Been Going On.” Eames’ own “This is Where I Wanna Be” has some impressive lyrics by the vocalist, making you hope she does a release of her own material. You’ll like her!” George W. Harris
