“One of the purest, most affecting voices to emerge in recent years, combining the smooth jazz sophistication of Carmen Lundy with the tempered-steel soulfulness of Anita Baker or Randy Crawford…a skilled and thoughtful lyricist, adding unusually cogent words to Wayne Shorter’s ‘Footprints’ and Herbie Hancock’s ‘Butterfly.’ A talent to watch.”

– Chris Parker, The London Times

One of the jazz scene’s best kept secrets…[Secrets is] well worth hearing, notably for ‘L’Altra Notte In Fondo Al Mare’ (an aria from Boito’s Mephistopheles), where freebop meets opera with astonishing results.”

– Stanley Péan, All About Jazz

Secrets is anything but a typical jazz vocalist’s debut recording. Tricia uses her voice like an instrument, becoming part of the band, and her distinctive, assured musicality is evident on every track.”

“Tricia Tahara is amongthe most exciting of the new upcoming recording stars.
