    * "Few people could have anticipated that an outfit of meticulous soul revivalists with an astonishingly energetic, smack-talking, 4-foot-11 middle-aged black woman for a lead singer would become one of the more celebrated indie acts in the country." New York Times

    * "(With her) retro-style big-band soul, Jones unleashes her fiery pipes on tunes about broken and breaking hearts." -Rolling Stone
