"... captivating, striking, brilliant..."
- JAZZIZ magazine

"Stagnitta shows her incredible sound on "Air Apparent" and plays facile piccolo on the next cut.... This is certainly an album to be cherished."
-Flute Talk magazine

"Nancy is just as fine a creative jazz artist as she is a renowned classical soloist. The real deal."
- David Amram

"Nancy has everything...she is strong, adventurous, powerful...yet never loses her foundation, tone, swing, and poise. She plays with complete control of the music and flawless musicianship. I'm proud to have had the opportunity to collaborate and learn from her."
- Grammy winner Bob James

"... Nancy Stagnitta played with brilliance and beauty of tone."
- The Baltimore Sun

"Nancy Stagnitta is among a very few flutists on the planet who can truly play BOTH Classical and Jazz flute! The recent recording with Bob James speaks volumes to her fluency and talent in great flute playing."
- Jim Walker, "Freeflight," LA Philharmonic former principal flutist

"'In the Chapel in the Moonlight' is a sheer delight with beautiful performances from both artists, witty and colorful arrangements, and marvelous soundscapes. It is an album to be treasured."
- Paula Robison, international flute soloist

"... not only a supremely talented musician, she represents the best of America in grace, poise and good humor."
- U.S.I.A., Maputo, Mozambique

"... Stagnitta plays her flute with loving tenderness... quite inventive... [Stagnitta and Levit] breathe sensitivity into the melodic tunes, yet they also transmit stimulating vibes through their close interplay and creative interpretations... this performance has character and many surprises..."
- Cadence Magazine
