“Montague has a voice that is immediately appealing, and is adaptable to the variety of tunes that she has chosen for the album. Her sound is smooth with a soulful edge. She never gets tied up with vocal excesses, emphatic when she needs to be, and tender at the appropriate moments.”
—Joe Lang, Jersey Jazz
“Antoinette Montague has a powerful voice, the ability to hold long notes without wavering, and a knack for making every song sound bluesy.”
—Scott Yanow, Los Angeles Jazz Scene
“Jazz players love to accompany a genuine jazz singer and Antoinette is as real as they come: good range, phrasing and taste.”
“Her lusty and soulful voice reaches your most inner core. Her strength is combining the heartfelt passion of the Blues with the sophistication of Jazz.”
—EAGLEyeONE Magazine (Canada)
“My Grandfather said of Ella Fitzgerald that she was 'BEYOND CATEGORY,' and I would like to say the same of Antoinette Montague, that she is 'beyond category.’ "
