Quotes:

Rebecca is simply one of the best interpreters of The Great American Songbook. She has a gorgeous voice and has a deep connection with every song she touches. In a world of pretenders, she's absolutely the real thing. I love what she does!

- Michael Feinstein

Becky sings with a beautiful clear sound, a great sense of time and swing, and a heartfelt unpretentiousness.

- Dave Frishberg

If Benny Goodman were alive today, he'd hire Becky to sing in his band.

- Bucky Pizzarelli

Rebecca Kilgore is the quintessential jazz singer. I look forward to every opportunity to work with her....every time is a real occasion!

- John Sheridan

Becky is one of my favorite singers, and one of my greatest recent pleasures was presenting her in concert on Fresh Air.
