At Jazz at Lincoln Center Shanghai with Walter Blanding, Andrew Latona, Malik McLaurine & Rodney Green

"Ms. Seikaly sings with a rich mezzo-soprano voice, using intonation, timbre and control that reflect her classical training. Her phrasing, feeling and improvisatory leanings come from an understanding of jazz values."
