Cecilia Long

“Cecilia’s unique jazz style impressed everyone.. A strong and inspiring performance!” — Kuystendil News, Kuystendil Bulgaria

“Cecilia has a voice that rings like a trumpet, a presence that smokes like a sax,rhythm that’s true as a drum: she’s the whole jazz combo in one talented package!” —Gregg Ottinger, KC Jam Magazine
“A very elegant and sophisticated voice. Beautiful!”— William Saroyan, Editor, jazzwest.com
