"It is because of vocalists like you that I HAVE to listen to the discs of hundreds of female vocalists that come across my desk; because you need know when you will run across someone who not only knows what they're doing but is also doing it in their own styles.  Kudos to you." -Mark Ruffin, Real Jazz-Sirius XM 

"The Love I’m In is an excellent follow up to Sentimental Mood, furthering the artistry and exploration of discography, Kate Reid delivers a stunning result and a disc certainly worth adding to your vocal jazz collection, most likely at the top of the stack." ~Geannine Reid, Jazz Times

"After just one hearing, I knew it would be one of my three dozen or so Desert Island Discs.  There isn't a track that's disposable in any sense, each and every one delivers its own particular pleasure, nuance and subtle phrasing make her points.  This lady has delivered such an outstanding disc!" ~Alan Bargebuhr, Cadence Magazine   

"Reid's the real deal: a thoroughly gifted jazz singer who respects the lyrics and interprets them as well as anyone singing today"  -George Fendel, Jazz Society of Oregon 

"Singers who are instrumentalists have a distinct advantage over those who are not, it seems to me. Her delivery, choice of notes, alterations of melody and harmony are distinctly those of a jazz musician, not often heard in singer who's not also a player. This is hip!"  -Jim Wilke, PRI's Jazz After Hours
