Great stuff!
This cd is great.
Top notch stuff!
The Dr. Lonnie Smith tracks are just an added bonus!!

This record is Hot! Something for every age to enjoy
Only a mad woman or a genius could put together such diverse elements while maintaining the high quality of the music... A very interesting project, this.The samples definitely left me wanting to hear more. Joan is a smoothe Jazz vocalist with an R&B flava to her sound. She's also a hot mama hipster hanging out with her outrageously talented cutting edge hip hop diva daughter. You go ladies! The band is hot-the tracks are clean. Whant more can I say? Good work -knock'em dead y'all!

Joan Is Outrageously Wonderful!!
This recording could be the very best one to be released in 2006. I have always referred to Joan Cartwright as the diva. Well, Joan is certainly one of the most talented singer songwriters in the business, she can hold her own with the very best. This recording however shows her talent to the ultimate and you are going to love it. Remember, I told you so.

A trip around the world in sound!
This is a musical voyage of where we have been and where we may go; it captures the time we live in and validates our emotions. Mo' power to you homegirl!
