“Her voice is as exciting as a roller coaster. It feels like danger, like she´s going to go flying off the rails, but one is constantly reassured that she´s securely attached, firmly grounded. So many surprises, so many registers, colors, so much humor, and sometimes melancholy, all coming out of that golden throat of hers! Truly amazing.” – José Luís Greco, composer

The Art Music Lounge: – “This album is a killer. Nearly every track comes at you like an assault of rhythm in which the twists and turns of the music keep you on the edge of your seat. Improvising like a jazz horn. Many such singers have claimed this distinction, but only a handful, Dunér, Mark Murphy & Anita O’Day among them, have ever really achieved this. There’s an elemental, animal excitement in everything Dunér sings that grabs you by the throat & pulls you out of complacency.” PURCHASE HERE
