Star Ledger, Jazz Review
Zan Stewart, Jazz Critic
Carrie is an advocate of the Great American Popular Songbook; a timeless wealth of material; and presents it with spirit and feeling, her renditions have a personal, not derivative, ring.
Ms. Jackson delivers these in just the right volume and vigor to reach all listeners; she digs into her comely lower ranges, mixed with her own jazz smarts, and sings in a no-nonsense manner, and makes the numbers breathe. Carrie Jackson is a rich-voiced blues, ballads and jazz standards singer who knows how to put a song across

Ms Jackson is Pure Jazz with strong tunes, plenty of great phrasing and challenging singing, she is truly abd exciting, and consummate jazz vocalist.
Carrie's wonderful low range, total command and interpretation of lyrics and an amazingly quick ability to run beautiful variations on a theme are gifts that have been possessed by only one or two artist's that I can think of- certainly Ms. Sassy Sarah Vaughan, Ella Fitzgerald!
