"jazz with world music leanings,transcendental style of pop singing...Rae's eclecticism is certainly admirable..embraces traditional Middle Eastern and Jewish music..Rae is quite capable of becoming better known in both jazz and world music circles."
Alex Henderson

" a mostly instrumentalcomposite of jazz/fusion and world music themes with guitars,drums,piano,flute,violin,and vocals"
"it is indeed eclectic, and has an old world charm about it that is hard to pin down and even harder to escape"
