“...the ice crean blonde with the black coffee jazz voice..." Donald Van Deusan, Jazz Critic

“While the industry breeds homogeneity, she remains defiantly different...one of the most distinctive stylists in jazz, regardless of instrument...this form of virtuosity is rarely heard..." Alexander Gelfand, Jazziz Magazine

“She has the wherewithal to make it easy for the listener to be entrapped without truly realizing it has happened...an upper-tier jazz singer" Dr. Herb Wong, IAJE

“...(her) kahlua-creamy voice often has an added shot of vodka for a rhythmic punctuation" A.D. Amorosi, Philadelphia Inquirer

“...Montgomery's smokey voice floats...invites freedom, but, like a crystal bowl, keeps the collection of musical thoughts contained inside a glistening boundary..." Al Hunter, Philadelphia Daily News

“...a silky, soft focus voice...an intimate, misty quality...able to negotiate octave leaps and quick-step sequences..." George Kanzler, Newark Star Ledger

“...(her) voice is an excellent example of how control, feeling, and emotion can combine to create an aura so confident and musical...never losing her way, staying true to the song...twisting, turning, weaving, and riding along with the melody, she floats with a seductive tone..." Randy McElligott, www.jazzreview.com

“...a talented, adventurous performer...(Dakini Land) is a fascinating album, a collection of her silken vocal interpretations..." Don Heckman, Los Angeles Times

“...if Montgomery were a trumpeter instead of a singer, she would be reminiscent of Chet Baker and early Miles Davis...she swings like Cool School favorites Chris Conner and June Christy..." Alex Henderson, www.AllAboutJazz.com
