"An assured and pleasingly mature début. It seems likely that Zara McFarlane is about to become an increasingly significant figure on the UK jazz scene. "
"Her singing combines technical expertise, purity of tone and an innate soulfulness in pretty much equal measure. 2014 is going to be a big year for Zara McFarlane."
