“Situating her gospel-tinted voice in a propulsive rhythmic groove, she proceeds to bend the blues, rehabilitate some standards and scamper through a couple of her own intriguing compositions....Cook can cook.” 
–  TIME Magazine
“Cook’s Dem Bones (3 ˝ stars) shows remarkable range . . . and innovative approaches . . . “

“… I’m already tempted to call her one of my favorite jazz singers. Part of Cook’s appeal is her reach: . . .she sings Basie, Rodgers and Hart, and Nascimento, but also taps into the music of her native Detroit and her experience, in gospel choirs.”   


“ . . . Cook’s interpretative gifts and sure-footed scatting are evident throughout the album, infusing the performances with a potent mixture of emotion and energy.”

-Washington Post
