"jazz with world music leanings..transcendental style of pop singing..
Rae's eclecticism is certainly admirable.. ebraces traditional
Middle Eastern and Jewish Music.. Rae is quite capable of becoming
better known in both jazz and world music circles."

standards and children's favorites.. Suki's wonderful talents
with the flute are obvious throught the fifteen tracks.."

listening experience.. she sings about the love and the eternal
