“Learn to say this name: It’s pronounced “Seen-uh Eeg.” The Danish jazz singer, an established star in Europe, checks all the boxes; burnished tone, perfect intonation, swing, unerring taste and an adventurous streak. She is a complete musician who, remarkably, also has a gift for interpreting lyrics in a natural, conversational way.”

“The news that Sinne Eeg is a much-admired jazz vocalist in Denmark might not grab many front pages, but the prizewinning 40-year-old is a genuine original and her stock is growing. A singer of laidback improv alertness and coolly lustrous tonality…”

“Danish vocalist Sinne Eeg has it all. With pitch-perfect delivery, a pen possessed of great depth and sincerity, and a voice owning a timbre capable of providing more warmth and comfort than a fireplace on a cold December’s night, Eeg leaves the ears wanting for nothing… Whether creating topical fine art, exploring the riches of the Great American Songbook, or sharing her own perspective on universal emotions, Eeg manages to cut straight to the heart. Hers is a voice that resonates with the sounds of beauty and truth.”

“Sinne Eeg gave a perfect lesson in the art of jazz singing March 15 at Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola in New York. In the modern era, when most jazz singers draw from the pop canon simply as a matter of survival, Eeg makes no such allowances. She possesses exceptional technique power, good taste, enunciation, control, earned wisdom – and knows how to work a song for all it’s worth, sometimes holding out a final climactic note until the very end, wowing audiences with a single sustained word.”

“Throughout the album, Eeg proves to be an expert in the art of inflection. She stresses a lyric in unexpected yet appropriate ways, demonstrates unerring intonation and pitch control, and shows herself to be an impressive improviser and communicator. Her vocals are never overbearing, but there’s no doubt about the fact that she’s in the driver’s seat.”

“Deres forehavende er kunstnerisk udfordrende, men de formår at få det bedste frem i hinanden, hvorfor denne anmelder må konkludere, at Eeg Fonnesbæk er et af den prisvindende Sinne Eegs bedste albums til dato.”

“Une chanteuse, une vraie. Elle enthousiasme a cappella, maîtrise parfaitement le scat, possède une voix très juste et compose d’excellentes chansons. Célèbre au Danemark, elle y a enregistré six albums, les deux derniers avec le même trio”
