"Hear her voice with the ears of wolves. A sound contour never before heard in American music and poetry. It transcends virtuosi vocalizing. It is presented as Shamanic ritual. The most perfect realization of Jazz song as siren song. Compels a revisioned understanding of the lure of the sweet woman’s voice as a passage to paradise.”
- Village Voice, N.Y., Norman Weinstein, critic and poet, ‘67


"Miss Waters is an advocate of that vocalism which clings closest to its primitive origins in the human cry, whether of anguish or ecstasy.”
- Harper’s Magazine, N.Y., Eric Larrabee ‘68


"Haunting melancholia... The range of tonal nuances and timbered expressiveness that she was capable of spewing from her glottals had become a strange, awe-Inspiring animal... One really ought to hip oneself to the art of Patty Waters. She is one of the best fucking singers alive.”
- Rolling Stone Magazine, N.Y., Nick Tosches '71


“Patty Waters Sings, as well as her College Tour album, should be considered one of the better free Jazz records to come out of the sixties.”
- OP Independent Music Magazine, WA, Christopher Stigliano '92


"Torch songs delivered in a chesty whisper... and Black is the Color... made her a certified phenomenon.”
- Record Collector's Goldmine Magazine. WI, Dr. Robert Campbell '93


"Her range moves easily from intimacy to introspection to rage. and her evocation of Black is the Color of My True Love's Hair has no parallel In musical history.”
- San Francisco Sentinel, CA. Michael Mascioli ‘93


"The world of free-flowing female jazz vocals was never the same since Patty Waters entered the picture. Her classic debut is one of the most unearthly, haunting tracks of a generation.”
-Forced Exposure, MA, Byron Coley '93


"The still astonishing Black is the Colour of My True Love’s Hair remains unforgettable and makes this a landmark ESP release."
-The Wire. E. Pouncey '93


"An act of great emotional courage. A landmark in modem avant-garde music history. We are lucky it exists”
-Perfect Sound Forever. D. Monypeny '93
