This particular review will be in the form of a personal note to Ms.Carroll: Joan, in your tidy cover letter to me, you allude to your CD project to be one: "Using the voice as an improvisational instrument, & as a sound in an ensemble.' May I say to you & our readers how robust the result. I have seldom heard such a vocal treatise on vocal jazz. I find your compelling group, as well as your vocalise to be replete with many examples of rich harmonies, taste, and rhythmic movement which you & your ensemble effectuate so artistically. And, so that I might not pontificate to the point where the reader might feel I'm being 'paid' to write this review, suffice it to say that you display a vocal virtuosity one must hear & enjoy. Readers: Go buy the disc now, to become part of Joan's superb musical journey!!
