“A wonderful UK singer who really has a very individual sound and a great choice of repertoire as well… I’ve been playing her on the show a lot, (I) really love her versions of standards and her original tunes as well. The music she has been creating with Nostalgia 77 over the past few years is some of my favourite British vocal jazz of recent times” Jamie Cullum, BBC Radio 2

Sara Mitra/Alice Russell/Emily Wright interview in The Daily Telegraph, 04/08/11

Sara Mitra/Alice Russell/Emily Wright interview in The Daily Telegraph, 04/08/11.

“Three especially talented names among this new wave of jazz singers will be at this year’s Brecon Jazz Festival.
Alice Russell, the most senior of them, has one of those deep, bluesy-soulful voices that we always thought only Americans could produce. She’s just released a new album, Pot of Gold. Sara Mitra and Emily Wright have both recently released debut albums, Mitra with her own band, Wright with guitarist Jon Hyde. In their different ways they strike a quieter, more intimate note. All three perform their own songs, as well as standards.
The results are terrific.”
Ivan Hewett, The Daily Telegraph
