Internationally known jazz critic, the late Leonard Feather said: "Yevette Stewart, (saxophonist's Pete Christlieb's discovery,) is
that rarity, a young singer who has jazz roots (a touch of Dinah Washington?), Good taste in tunes (Blossom Dearie's "Hey John") and plenty, plenty of soul. "Feather heard Stewart when she first came
to Los Angeles as part of the Pete Christlieb's quartet. And he said in his review: "...Whoever said there were no real jazz singers coming up evidently has not heard Stewart."
