Joanna Pascale Quartet
Listening to Joanna Pascale sing is like getting a big hug. Her voice is warm, wise and easy to love.
"Vocalist Joanna Pascale has an enviable commodity: a durable and pliant alto voice over which she has perfect control. Whether she is in a conversational mode, as on Valerie Brown's "Forget Me" or a slow walk through the Goffin/King classic "Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow," Pascale readily makes the lyrics real and her own in a comfortable and familiar way that tactilely feels like a favorite blanket... warm, sensual, satisfying." - C. Michael Bailey, jazz times review . "Close listening reveals strong hints of Lena Horne and Nancy Wilson. Stylistically, though, Pascale more closely suggests Peggy Lee. Like Lee, she reveals an innate sensuality, equaling Lee’s ability to elevate ballads to maximum torchiness and also to swing with soft, playful sexiness..." - Christopher Louden, Jazz Times
