“The kickoff track to vocalist Carolyn Lee Jones’ Bon Appetit! sets the palate for an intimate set of straight-ahead jazz…hip selection…swinging side dish…superb accompaniment.” – Jazziz Magazine

“She can wrap us around her finger with the simplest lyric and melody line or fascinate us with her mixture of styles.  Simply stated, she just HAS it and here it is for everyone’s enjoyment.” – Amazon

“…Carolyn Lee Jones has the sensual voicing of Billie Holiday and the melodic sensibilities of Shirley Bassey.” – Yahoo

“Carolyn Lee Jones is elegance personified.  We were privileged to have her perform in our inaugural Sammons Cabaret Season and she delivered an exciting and memorable performance.  Her voice is warm, silky and polished and her style is captivating and irresistible.” – Joanna St Angelo, Executive Director – Sammons Center For the Arts, Dallas Texas

“It was refreshing to hear Carolyn Lee Jones sing Johnny Mercer at the Uptown Theater Cabaret in Grand Prairie on Tuesday night. Unlike many entertainers who style themselves as vocalists (willingly or by default), Ms. Jones can actually sing. In song after song, she showed a level of breath control that enabled her to stretch a phrase and play with the pitch, volume, and timbre long after many other singers would have simply moved on.” – Richard E Evans – Music and Theater Reviews – Dallas, TX

“Sultry, sensitive and seductive, Dallas jazz chanteuse Carolyn Lee Jones beguiles with her remarkable sophomore outing, The Performer” – Steve Carter – Dallas Modern Luxury Magazine

“She became a full time jazz singer and band leader in 2008, and this is her second album, and a fine piece of work it is … she’s a singer with a rich, flexible range, expressing herself admirably in song.” – CD Review Bebop Spoken Here – United Kingdom
