Sara Krieger has a voice that soars like a shooting
star. Poised, streamlined and elegant, it's like an instrument, gliding up
and down the scales, scatting and playing tag with notes.

She's a lady whose jazz base is
Sarah Vaughn's depths and whose complement is Barbara Cook's heights. She
has astonishing control and range. Her pipes can seduce, jam, treasure and

Her song patterns reflect a complex line of thought.
She weaves in and out of the melody in a manner that indicates that a lot
of thinking has gone into the rendition of each phrase. Her modus operandi
provides interest just in trying to follow her moves. The diverse subject
matter together with her high riding scale makes her highly listenable. She'll
be a huge winner.
...Miss Krieger emerges as the most convincing
and versatile performer. She colors "Midnight Sun" with a sensitivity
for the structure of Mercer's lyric.

She's a good singer...Her delivery is deft and
her range is enormous. Starting from low bass notes to soprano highs, she
swings and scats "I Thought About You", she wryly captures the satiric
comedy of Dave Frishberg's "I'm Hip", and she sells with feeling
a beautiful love song - "When I Look In Your Eyes".

She's wonderful. She is Sara Krieger, an astonishing
singing talent. Sara takes a standard and makes it into an improvised magical
song--her voice is as sweet as a bell, and lilting in a haunting fashion.
(She) has a phenomenal range, and a warm smile that lights up her songs.

Sara Krieger is one of the most sensational vocalists
you'll ever get the chance to see. A song is a very personal thing to Sara;
In her mind, they write themselves and when you hear her perform her original
tunes, you know it's true. There is an immense depth of feeling conveyed when
she sings and if you glance around the audience, you are struck by the fact
that no one moves, no one talks...everyone is simply captivated with her presence,
her diversity, and her amazing talent.

...a stunning, almost bone-chilling vocalist.

Sara Krieger brings tears with a tender interpretation
of "My Funny Valentine". The voice is rich and flexible and able
to negotiate from the mezzo to the low coloratura range. Krieger's talents
extend from the traditional ballad to some hot scat singing...But Krieger's
talents are not merely in the vocal area. She's a wonderful ad-libber, accepting
heckling from her audience with aplomb and sharp-edged wit.
-- New York Native
It's unfortunate that most singers today cannot
interpret the music that they sing; but SARA is always in complete control.
