Overdue Ovation - Carmen Lundy

by Christopher Loudon, JazzTimes, September 2012

CHANGES - CD Review

By Nora McCarthy, Jazz Inside Magazine, July 2012

What Carmen Lundy has achieved in her recent offering, changes, takes a lifetime to perfect. A vocal artisan, musician, highly accomplished performer, band leader, composer/arranger, lyricist, and educator she blossoms with beauty and fulfillment on eight original compositions reflecting a complexity of subtle moods from a personal yet very relatable perspective.

Montreal International Jazz Festival 2012, Carmen Lundy

By Peter Hadekel, The Montreal Gazette

The turnout for Carmen Lundy's concert Wednesday at Club Soda wasn't as large as other Festival shows. Maybe folks were too busy celebrating the Fourth of July. If so, they missed one of America's finest jazz vocalists. Lundy is a well-schooled singer with a complete command of the jazz tradition and a gift for writing her own material.

Montreal International Jazz Festival 2012, Carmen Lundy

By Juan Rodriguez, The Montreal Gazette

Picks for Wednesday, July 4th:

Carmen Lundy at Club Soda. A classic jazz singer – not retro, but the real deal – with an adventurous style and imposing voice, in her first festival appearance in nine years. A rare treat.

Carmen Lundy - Changes

By JAMES NADAL - All About Jazz
Published: April 18, 2012
 
Contemporary jazz vocalists, caught in the current trend to accelerate their careers, are often indistinguishable from the pack, the essence of their music lost in haste. With her release of Changes , veteran singer Carmen Lundy proves that this premise does not apply to her, rising to that proverbial summit to enjoy the rarefied air of the chosen few.

CHANGES - CD Review

By CriticalJazz.com, February 18, 2012

There are singers, storytellers, artists and then there is Carmen Lundy.

Lundy is the epitome of the searching artist and pulls off the musical hat trick as vocalist, composer and arranger with relative ease. The amazing thing about Lundy is her high level of consistency and genuine authenticity. Musical integrity is a rare commodity these days. Did I mention Lundy is a celebrated visual artist as well? Check out the cover art...
