“Francesca Tandoi has truly impressive piano skills,” raved Dutch magazine JazzFlits. “She literally flies over the keyboard. And she’s blessed with a beautiful singing voice full of warmth and sensuality.”
Well-known pianists Monty Alexander said, “Francesca Tandoi is a supremely tasteful swinging piano player. Her vocals are exquisite, her compositions are melodic and memorable, and her arrangements are extremely thoughtful.”

Tandoi’s debut album “For Elvira” (2014) featured her “European trio,” including world-class drummer Frits Landesbergen and bassist Frans van Geest, sold over 10.000 copies.
Japanese magazine “Jazz Life” characterized her in 2016 as “one of the biggest young talents of the European jazz scene,” naming her album “Wind Dance” as among the ten best jazz albums of that year.
