“Listening to Cate performing to an appreciative audience at a venue such as the Brisbane Jazz Club is a pleasing and memorable occasion. Her diction is clear, her pitching flawless. She has all the attributes necessary for a quality singer while her choice of songs is always fascinating. Fittingly her latest album was actually recorded at the Brisbane Jazz Club with its memorable view of the Brisbane River. It was, as Cate sings 'So Nice'”.
