"Few debut recordings have as much depth and personal revelation as In the Indigo. Nancy Harms can swing with the best of them but her heart, her voice, her soul go far beyond the Great American songbook in both interpretation of standards and mining new material. One of the year’s best local recordings." -Andrea Canter, Jazz Police
"...a quiet confidence, an innate sense of swing and languorously seductive phrasing. On this debut, she does standards, a John Mayer tune and a couple of originals. Quite impressive." –Jon Bream, MINNEAPOLIS STAR TRIBUNE
She shapes words as if they taste delicious. Her swing is innate and roomy. Somehow she combines sultry with cool. Each song is a confidence whispered in your ear, intimate and alluring. The first time you hear this voice, you’ll wonder, “Who’s that?” The next time, you’ll think, “Ahhh…Nancy Harms.” That’s how exceptional she is, and how memorable.
—Pamela Espeland, jazz writer
Nancy Harms vocally paints standards such as “Bye Bye Blackbird,” draws a contemporary picture with John Mayer’s “Great Indoors,” and beautifully colors her composition “In The Indigo” with lovely hues from her own distinctive palette. -Maryann Sullivan, Corner Jazz (KBEM-FM)
“The essentials, superb time and a uniquely lovely voice, are richly in evidence, along with excellent phrasing, a keen sense of drama, and the ability to draw from a variety of influences while still creating something totally her own.”
–Arne Fogel, vocalist, broadcaster
