About Nancy King
“She is, I think, one of the best singers that ever walked the planet.”
- Karrin Allyson, jazz vocalist
"A supple voice, a flawless ear and the instincts of a true jazz improviser."
- The Oregonian
"King made the crowd giddy with romance and humor...bowled them over with powerful, sophisticated scatting."
- Seattle Post-Intelligencer
"...her singing FLIES between our ears with a certainty of inevitable rightness that is at least... simply thrilling."
- Mark Murphy, jazz vocalist
"Wild chances with a voice both lovely and flexible..."
- Cadence Magazine
"King is one of America's top jazz singers...the scat-singing heiress apparent to Ella Fitzgerald."
- Front Row Center
"Nancy King is solidly on the map."
- JazzTimes Magazine
"Gifted with the emotional depth of Carmen McRae, King holds standards up to the light and explores their nuances through the prism of her stunning technique. Moving and often challenging, she takes the lyrical ballad to new highs and lows."
- Willamette Week
