I had a wonderful debut at Birdland Theater celebrating Abbey Lincoln!

2012 release "DEAR ABBEY: The Music of Abbey Lincoln" 

"A vocalist who wraps (Abbey) Lincoln's complex songs around her finger…" Mark Myers, Jazzwax.com

 The very fine singer Teri Roiger is one of the few who truly comprehends what Abbey Lincoln did with time, timbre, and phrasing. Most importantly, she is not what they call a clone. Teri absorbed everything into her own individuality, can actually swing hard, sing impressive ballads, and emote the invincible and real feeling of jazz. STANLEY CROUCH (Author, Cultural Critic & 2019 NEA Jazz Master)

Powerfully moving...segacious warmth...impressively deep...Christopher Loudon, JAZZTIMES  

She is made for those who still understand the meaning of the term the real thing. Stanley Crouch (Author/Cultural Critic & 2019 NEA JazzMaster) 

Roiger has a voice like the finest bittersweet chocolate full of rich, dark, contradicting flavors that miraculously blend to create one of the most original vocal instruments in decades. Playboy Magazine
