 If you haven’t had the opportunity to hear them live, grab a copy of this CD. After listening I predict that you’ll be in the audience next time.

Brenda Carol is one of the finest jazz vocalists singing today.

Lee Prosser, Jazz Review

Carol has a well-rounded set of pipes…. [her] feathery croon wraps the lyrics in a warm caress. Carol’s contributions on [“Lucky Seven”] respectfully recall shades of Joni Mitchell.

Derek Taylor, Cadence Magazine

This bright new singer is a welcome addition to the Canadian jazz scene and carries on the tradition of such luminaries as Chris Connor and June Christy. The young lady is a pure jazz singer in every sense of the word.

Richard Bourcier, Jazz Review.com

[Brenda Carol] refreshingly makes the lyrics of a tune become like seeds flowering into a new life, vision, vitality and dimension. Whether wistful or joyous she relays the many moods of each song directly, powerfully, yet beautifully.

Joanne Brackeen, jazz pianist/educator

There is an economy, and a directness, to what Brenda does that is exceedingly rare, moreso every day.

Bill Martin, associate professor of philosophy, DePaul University, Chicago author of Music of Yes and Listening to the future

With her beautiful voice, creative explorations, and joyful desire to continue stretching the boundaries of jazz, Brenda Carol promises to be a major force in modern music for many years to come. A very talented jazz singer.
