Brenda Carol Quotes:
"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
"Brenda Carol is one of the finest jazz vocalists singing today."
- Lee Prosser, Jazz Review
"[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
