“Elaine Small’s voice sounds warm and genuine, with hints of Ella Fitzgerald in her lower range. That is a compliment I do not throw around casually, because in my mind, Ella was the ultimate vocalist. Perhaps the accumulated wisdom and experience of her years make her performances more grounded. There is a delightful poignancy to hearing her sing ‘You Make Me Feel So Young’. What strikes me is how the communication of text is so natural in Elaine’s singing. I believe that she feels what she is singing.” David Reed – CD Junkie, Music Critic, The Belleville Intelligencer
Elaine has returned to her first love, Music. She states, “It is a true thrill to finally have the opportunity to record a professional CD with Canada’s top jazz musicians: Guido Basso, Brian Barlow, Mark Eisenman and Scott Alexander.” Her Album, I’ll Be Seeing You is an exciting collection from The Great American Songbook offered in a Jazz-pop genre with wonderful clarity.
Elaine’s second Album/CD ‘All or Nothing at All,’ featured two double Juno Award winners in Guido Basso and Robi Botos, along with Brian Barlow, Scott Alexander, Michael Francis and Roly Platt.
