“Rachel Pearl's modern compositional influences were worn on her sleeve during the recording of "Baby Blue." Billie Holliday. Peggy Lee. Madeleine Peyroux. Joni Mitchell. Like her predecessors, Pearl is proficient in the art of highly expressive balladry. It's rare that a jazz artist can combine "playful" and "torch" in the same song, and even more difficult to pull it off as successfully as Pearl does here. An innate arrangement and declarative phrasing makes "Baby Blue" both vivid and immediate.”
“Rachel Pearl could pull off any kind of Bille Holiday jazz that she wanted. Girl's got skills.”
