“Her alto is both powerful and pliable, capable of Betty Carter-like flights of fancy…”
-All About Jazz
“At her core is a certain poised softness that elevates her to glide over the material, without ever losing contact with it.”
-Washington City Paper
“Wood’s moderate vibrato at the end of each line and astonishing vocal range inject her phrasing with a dramatic effect, quite effective in coveying the emotions of a song.”
“The Duke Ellington School of the Arts graduate moves fearlessly up and down octaves, all the while maintaining a distinct sense of purpose.”
“She has the voice and the feeling for this very important work…. She is there and she knows what to say so we want to listen.“
-Jim Compton-Schmidt, KFCF Fresno, CA
