"To do justice to the lyrics of Alan & Marilyn Bergman, a singer must have flawless pitch, a very attractive tone, the ability to enunciate perfectly so one always understands the lyrics, and a solid sense of swing. She has all of those qualities" Scott Yanow, LA Jazz Scene, author of The Jazz Singers
"Meadowlark...a singer who bears some physical and vocal resemblance to Barbra Streisand, delivered one of the two or three strongest renditions I can remember. She also has a sense of humor that comes into play at appropriate moments." Stephen Holden,The New York Times
