"Brimming with a fresh creativity and youthful vitality, Introducing Julie Benko indeed introduces us to something... and someone special."

                           -All About Jazz

"Julie Benko has a sweet gypsy flair to her voice, and uses it well on this flexible release which features her own material and some clever covers...  She’s got a nimble delivery with lyrics... disarmingly intimate and... cozy by the fireplace. Creative and swinging." 

                          -Jazz Weekly

"11 standout performances on her recently released debut... The album contains several surprising turns, not the least of which is Benko's gifted songwriting on three originals."

                         -New York City Jazz Record

"Benko has the chops and knows how to use them... jazz vocal fans are sure to have a new set to delight in here. Well done."

                        -Midwest Record

"The thing about early Streisand that shot a twenty something to the stratosphere of song stylists in the '60's was her extraordinary skill in "acting" a song... Benko is in that tradition."


"Obviously, Julie Benko has ‘pipes’... She sings with power and gusto. I recognized immediately that she has a stage voice ready to soar onto Broadway stages."
