Lila's new exciting CD is out !
"Lila Ammons is heard in top form throughout Genealogy. She displays a versatile and appealing voice on a wide variety of infectious material.” - Scott Yanow
"A left of center vocal date ...it has an almost underground feel to it making it snap with a special kind of verve and spontaneity. Fine stuff that really opens the ears.“
- Midwest Record Entertainment
"Lila has a distinctive sound and approach to interpreting some of the familiar jazz standards we have embraced over the years. At times, Lila’s vocal style reminds me of Esther Sattersfield, but for sure she has her own vocal identity."
- Dee Dee McNeil, Musical Memoirs Blog
