“Refined, generous, jubilating...the writing is stunning, open, articulate.” --PIERRE BENSUSAN, world guitarist

"There are echoes of Oregon in Elizabeth’s group, Heard. Smart and worldly melodic with lots of ear candy in the form of percolating rhythms and textures." --Mike Stratton, WLNZ East Lansing, MI

 "Heard approaches the same world/jazz/classical turf as Paul Winter but comes at it from a different angle imbuing it with a jazz edge that gives it more of an across the board upscale feel. Leader Woodbury Kasius might have paid a different set of dues but her passion for the form will bring a lot of new listeners into the tent on the whole. A groovy, easy going set that works wonders for tired ears."--Chris Spector, Midwest Record Recap
