"Wendee Glick works with a small ensemble that lets her swing gently. Her voice lets each ballad shimmer in the moonlight, while each up-tempo romp swings with clarity. There’s a resonant quality in her voice that says, “Relax, everything’s natural, and it’s time to open up.”
"There's something mysterious and sexy about that randomness and eclectic nature of jazz, and the same can be said of Nashua resident Wendee Glick... Glick's voice is masterful throughout the album. She's able to instill her own beauty and style into songs that have been sung for years and make them seem fresh again."
"Both of Glick's discs are chockablock with standards, in each case a carefully chosen mix of swing tunes, ballads, and a bit of Latin. ...it's Glick's three-octave vocal range and the joy that using it brings her that keep her moonlighting as a jazz singer"
"I noticed a big improvement every year in her performing - her singing ability and her way of reaching an audience and all... So when she called me to make a CD with her, I was happy to do it, because I thought she was a promising talent. I enjoyed making the CD with her, and I think she sounded great."
"It is always enjoyable to discover new jazz talent. It was immediately obvious, listening to Wendee Glick's debut CD Baby, I'm Fine when it was released a couple years ago, that she was an up-and-comer, and that feeling has been reinforced by her follow-up True Colors. She has a beautiful voice, swings at all tempos, improvises with subtlety and taste, and knows how to uplift superior material."
"Wendee sings from the heart. Her enthusiasm for music, and specifically this selection of songs bubbles right to the surface."
"This girl can sing!... Very exciting!!"
"...the infectiousness of her singing, her joy in the enterprise becoming evident to anyone who listens to her..."
"Glick shines on music of all tempos...
The more we listened, the more we liked."
"Talented, charismatic jazz singer with a roaring voice"
"Wendee's phrasing and sense of swing make her a welcome addition to that short list of vocalists who care about nuance."
"Wendee has a voice that will be in demand. Her treatment of the old standards is refreshing..."
"I can hear a lot of soul... something only the best singers possess."
