"nostalgic, romantic, emotionally charged song cycle"
--Chicago Sun-Times

"Jenkins will knock you flat...I’ve never been so seduced by music completely new to me yet as embraceable as any from the classic American songbook."
--Bloomberg News

"Capathia Jenkins’ soaring voice—sweet, smart, sassy and full of soul—warmed the hearts of everyone in the audience."

"In 'South Side Stories,' Rosen...has created a fine and sometimes somber portrait of heartbreak and survival, joy and its absence, and love that endures even when the objects of that love are long vanished." --Chicago Tribune
