“I've always loved voices: Jeanne Lee, Abbey Lincoln, Mahalia Jackson, Chris Connor, Christine Correa, Sara Serpa, Alice Ricciardi” - Ran Blake Pianist/ Composer/ MacArthur Genius Grant 1988

“A master phraser with a fresh point of view, Ricciardi is alternately surrealistic and swinging” - Ted Panken DownBeat Magazine

“From the first notes the listener will realize that Ms. Ricciardi is a major new talent, a pure jazz singer with a great voice and solid technique. Her silky smooth voice, perfect enunciation, sunny disposition, cool-eyed intelligence and just the right amount of vibrato remind me of some of the greatest jazz singers of all time, like Carmen McRae and Betty Carter. She’s not an entertainer, she’s a jazz singer.” - Norman Simmons Pianist and Accompanist for Carmen McRae, Sarah Vaughan, Betty Carter, Anita O’Day
