“I first met Grace Kelly at the 2006 summer jazz program at Stanford University. I was amazed at her precocity and talent. Recently she sat in with me and the Jazz Ambassadors Jazz Band at the Pittsfield Jazz Festival and we jammed together through "I'll Remember April." How did she sound? I gave her my hat! That is how good she sounded! She is the first alto player to get one. Hooray for the future of jazz and the alto sax!"

………Phil Woods

This is Miss Kelly’s 3rd CD, and it’s a very nice one. Of course you know Grace is 14 years on this planet, and is all ears and heart.
Beautiful sound on her alto, and some lovely phrases to boot!
Lester Young asked a young player after hearing a technical display, “but can you sing me a song?” Grace can definitely do that.
Good rhythm, nice arrangements, creative originals.
She sings like crazy!
What more could we ask for?
…..Lee Konitz
Dear Grace,
After hearing your project, I'm convinced that your talent is definitely worthy of the attention of the Jazz community, and your future is genuinely going to earn a high level of achievement.
……Cedar Walton

"The future of our music is in good hands."
…..Jimmy Heath.

.........."the jazz world has another great reason to celebrate with the arrival of Grace Kelly. Her talent makes her a triple threat as a brilliant saxophonist, a very gifted composer, and vocalist with great feeling. Her playing represents everything I love about jazz, swinging, imagination, and the blues. You must check out this Cd
...........Donald Brown

“I know of no explanation other than genius for this slender fourteen-year-old girl's attainment of maturity in her art. She has mastery of the instrument, passion, profound swing, and judgment that one would expect in a player with twenty years of professional experience.”
……Doug Ramsey

“Hi Grace,
Well after reading the glowing reviews from many of my peers on your CD jacket I expected something special, but words can only do so much justice toward introducing your talents and obvious dedication to music. It simply has to be know how get to the essence of swing, sound, and true improvisation, and whether you are playing or singing or composing this essence shines through and is the sign of a true artist at work. It also goes without saying, that you have a maturity far beyond your years. I look forward to following your career. I really think you will have a big impact on the music world.”
….. Randy Brecker

“Her voice is sweet and soulful, bridging the vocal traditions of jazz and pop music in an authentic, original way. Her sensitivity, control and focus as an alto saxophonist is impressive. What knocked me out in particular is her songwriting.”
....Ann Hampton Callaway

“I’m really knocked out with her playing, it sounds mature, doesn’t have anything to prove, and she’s just in the moment improvising. She’s got it naturally. That’s what I love about her.”

....Jerry Bergonzi

Times Two
I first heard Miss Grace Kelly on Piano Jazz with Marian McPartland and I couldn't believe her age! She is truly a genius, the sax, the sweet voice, the songs, and the wonderful lyrics all belie her tender years. There is hope for the future of music with someone of such passion and talent leading the way.
