Ann Mitchell: People have said..

Ann is fantastic!  A true professional, phenomenal talent and a great person all rolled into one.  We are fortunate to have her music in our own home town!

“My only programming suggestions would be the addition of a few more of our considerable local jazz talents (though I recognize our jazzers also have the benefit of the city's jazz festival in June). Of course, it is impossible to see everything — or even close to everything — in a festival that includes 500 performances. But, we found several winners. They included: Ann Mitchell's tuneful tribute to Peggy Lee.” 

“I visited Rochester last month for the Corn Hill Arts Festival. I think it was my fourth visit this time. Well anyway, I'm a big jazz fan. I looked for your group that morning and I truly enjoyed the music. Photography is my other passion so I combined the two and came up with a nice video of your group.”

 “You have a very good ear for what sounds right and what you need to get your music across properly to the audience.”

Matt B, Recording Engineer - MacMaster Recording


“Well worth seeing. She is passionate about her music and has fun at the same time.”

I would endorse you to anyone or any organization! You would be a phenomenal addition to any professional endeavor as you are simply the best as a wonderful singer with your trio,  and an all-around entertainer!  I love your singing voice and your varied selections of songs from the” Great American Songbook”!  Your audience always feels uplifted from your nostalgic music, and your voice is always dynamic and reminiscent of the great Big Band singers from that golden era of music.  Best Wishes as always!

Hello Ann,

Caught the later part of you show on jazz90.1 tonight……I thoroughly enjoyed what I heard. Being a sucker for ballads, I especially liked "What a difference a day makes".  Everything I heard sounded completely professional, and I like your style.  I hope that we can get out to hear you sometime next summer.

"Ann is a true professional with an enormous amount of talent. She is a highly skilled and dynamic vocalist who never fails to entertain and connect with her audiences. I've had the good fortune of experiencing her performances over many years and she never disappoints. You can't go wrong with Ann Mitchell Jazz!" ~ Ira Fair, General Manager  One Source Rehearsal & Performance


Just wanted to tell you what an outstanding job you did for the wedding of Peter and Joanne .  We loved your music and had wonderful comments from family and friends about how nice it was. There were songs I knew and we loved the funky numbers of the chicken dance and Hokey Poky.  You are really the best.   ~ Pete's mom and dad  [October 22nd wedding]

Thank you again for the fabulous performance on the 13th.  We’ve gotten lots of positive feedback from the library patrons, including members of our Friends group- saying their was money well spent.  Another patron wrote that the performance  “blew me away.”    I personally appreciate all the time and effort you all put into the event.  See you next year!

Dear Ann, 

Thank you for presenting such a stirring performance of popular music for the audience.  You received so many positive remarks from guests as they left for the evening - they really appreciated the song list and the way in which you presented the material.  It was a pleasure to have you as a performer at Strong National Museum of Play.  You were very pleasant to work with and your band was top-notch.
