Media Quotes:

"Jazz musicians who also have roots in progressive rock, especially the music of Yes, seem a very unlikely prospect, but with vocalist Brenda Carol, pianist Stephen Gardner, and their group ClaireVoyance, this is what we have, and it works beautifully. Make no mistake, this is a "real" jazz group, using acoustic instruments,... and not playing fusion or any of that watered-down "cool" stuff."
- Bill Martin, associate professor of philosophy, DePaul University, Chicago author of Music of Yes and Listening to the future

"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

"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

"[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

“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".
- Scott Yanow, author of The Jazz Singers, The Ultimate Guide
