Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Scott Yanow
Cassandra Reed is a singer-songwriter with a voice a little reminiscent of Norah Jones. Even further away from jazz than Jones, Reed's music, released by Concord's popish subsidiary, falls into the contemporary folk music idiom. Her voice is appealing and sometimes soulful, her songs are reasonably catchy, and her lyrics are worthwhile although not overly memorable. Her debut recording as a leader she had previously recorded background vocals on a few sessions is pleasant background music that is radio friendly. Trumpeter Wallace Roney makes a cameo appearance on "Color Of Love."

    Review of Cassandra Reed

    Cassandra Reed’s self-titled debut album encompasses the soft, sultry sounds of contemporary jazz intertwined with moving lyrics that directly speak from her real life experiences with love, heartache, and independence. The album, itself, contains an eclectic range of themes that is reinforced by the soothing, soulful quality in Reed’s voice. Listeners will, undoubtedly, feel the rhythmic nature in the album’s twelve song compilation. Moreover, the ease at which one can identify with her poignant words will undeniably have an effect on anyone’s listening experience. From her struggles of prejudice to a realization of a lost love, her words express great passion and emotion. Her first single, “The Next Time,” delivers a melodic, acoustic-driven sound which is worthy of any R&B fan, but beyond that, her words and music have an appeal to a universal audience. The inspiration felt within Cassandra Reed’s album is, in essence, a reflection of an individual who holds nothing but talent and originality.
