Andrea Wolper has been described as "a giant singer" (In Tune

vision" (Blogcritics) who "brings songs to life, whatever their
source, working in a milieu that begins with jazz and reaches out
to embrace an expressive area that is uniquely her own"
(International Review of Music). Mixing genres, crossing
boundaries, as accomplished and at home with the Great American
Songbook as she is with spontaneous improvisation, Wolper
approaches all her music with an adventurous, open spirit. Her
original songs, as well as her unusual arrangements of standards
and music from a variety of genres and sources, reveal a dynamic,
singular musical sensibility that reaches audiences beyond
