"...A set of superior songs from several eras, she displays a beautiful tone, digs into the meanings behind the lyrics, swings throughout, and makes each note count. With the maturity that she displays in her youthful voice, it is difficult to believe that this is her debut recording. One cannot help smiling when hearing her sing."

...Scott Yarnow, JazzTimes, Downbeat, Cadence, L.A. Jazz Scene

"A superlative group of bay area musicians...serve up a swinging backdrop for a singer deserving of wider recognition." ...Dick Conte, KCSM JAZZ FM-91

"...well-produced and arranged jazz songs, that features the silky-smooth vocals of Quinn. She shows off her vocal range on the Wayne Shorter tune, a beautiful and difficult song for a vocalist to interpret....Zeena Quinn performs it fearlessly. This elegant, debut recording continues the legacy of vocal jazz in high style"

...Dee Dee McNeil, JazzWordpress.com/September 2020

"...she sings It Might as Well be Spring, with its exquisite lyric in French! Quinn displays admirable range, diction and phrasing..." ...Jack Bowers, Allaboutjazz.com

"Here is an actor's approach to a song, playing out a drama: a crystalline articulation of lyrics, an appreciation of nuances. With a warm voice and impeccable delivery, a flair for language, and a judicious use of scat, Zeena Quinn impresses on this debut CD and leaves us hoping for more." ...Kathleen Lawton, KCSM JAZZ-FM 91
