Most impressive and surprising is her flowing wordless treatment of Pat

Metheny’s “Bright Size Life” and a dreamy take of Jimmy Webb’s “By the

Time I Get to Phoenix.” Surrounded by brass, she glides all over the

version of “I’ll Never Fall In Love Again.

  - George W. Harris

  - Bob Blumenthal, Boston Globe

If you love jazz and a fresh honest approach to the great standards, you'll love Kaoruko's "Joy Spring".

  - Michael Khouri, North East Performer Magazine

Singing in three languages; English, Portuguese and in fluent scat, Kaoruko knows how to situate her voice.
