“Vocalist Joanna Pascale has an enviable commodity: a durable and pliant alto voice over which she has perfect control. – C. Michael Bailey, All About Jazz.” Joanna Pascale isn’t the sort of jazz vocalist who draws attention to herself at the expense of a lyric. She also doesn’t settle for songs whose words don’t deserve the attention… Her real gift is storytelling, not improvisation, and she puts that talent to splendid use…”- Mike Joyce, Washington Post
