International jazz journalist Patricia Myers has said of Delphine, “Delphine Cortez literally takes possession of each song so firmly that one does not think of comparing Delphine’s style to anyone else’s – Delphine sings as only Delphine can. Her voice evokes warmth and passion with remarkable depth and range.”
