"First up was a young lady named Jacosa, who really has a future ahead of her.  Singing Duke's 'Squeeze Me', her tone was reminiscent of Billie Holiday, but without imitating the legend like so many other Jazz singers try to do."

"Singers Jacosa Limutau, Owen Myers and Julia Dollison proved worthy of Ellington’s music, with Limutau a standout on “The Lord’s Prayer,” her voice warm and emotionally persuasive."

“It has been my great pleasure to observe the development of Jacosa as an artist over the last ten years. Her latest musical offering “THERE I GO” is a wonderful set with a jazz flavor, but also with Polynesian undertones. MOODY’S MOOD harkens to the great jazz singers with her sultry tone and languid phrasing, while BEHOLD LAIE soothes the soul as we drift off to an island paradise. And of course there is her high energy swing and creative arrangements, as in CRY ME A RIVER. Jacosa is ready to thrill and captivate audiences with her original sense of style and cross cultural blends.  Look out Diana, Jane, and Norah….here comes Jacosa!”

“Jacosa performs challenging jazz music with style and ease.  She has broad and deep musical talent, dedication to the art form, and intelligence of the mind and heart.”
-David Thorne Scott

“Jacosa sings with emotion; she sings from her heart.  Her voice is pure beauty.  Still very young, she is mature beyond her years.  I had the great pleasure of working with her and I was not only impressed with her amazing voice, but also with her deep, calm and peaceful character. She is a joy to listen to!!!”

“When we worked together, I was mesmerized by the quality and maturity of Jacosa’s vocals. I accompany many Jazz vocalists around the country and she is certainly in the upper ranks of wonderful singers.”
-Jim Martinez

“Jacosa is a superb, soulful vocalist, musically sure of herself, yet open to input of her side musicians and producers. One to watch!”
