"Melissa Lambert's atmospheric images of live jazz in LA embrace the mood, giving imagery to the music itself. Employing a variety of tools, the photographs exist on multitude of levels. Notes and phrases lyrically weave in and out of one another, providing a rich canvas of rhythm and melody. The image becomes the music"
-- Greg Cohen, photographer, curator, and writer
"Melissa Lambert wants to preserve the magic of the moment as she photographs jazz musicians playing in dark, smoky clubs. She then draws directly onto the photographic images. The result: fresh, surreal and kinetic."- Diana Zlotnick, Newsletter on the Arts
