Girl Gone Jazz CD Review: "Jazz permeates Western consciousness.  In its journey and spontaneity it serves as the lure of becoming.  In this remarkable recording, Sandra Locklear gives us both her mastery of the medium as well as her own unique compositions, that bring the listener to places both high and higher."

~ Jean Houston - Author, psychologist, scholar, behavioral scientist and teacher (Feb, 2012)

Goddess Rising CD Review: "Sandra's Goddess-inspired music brings the listener to sacred communion with Herself.  So exquisite and evocative are her songs that one is charged with the Light of the Mystery that her compositions reveal."

~ Jean Houston - Author, psychologist, scholar, behavioral scientist and teacher (Feb, 2012)

Workshop participant: "Sandra, you're an extremely inspiring, creative and knowlegeable vocal 'facilitator.'  I believe you are able to reach all types of people on many levels to open their spirits to joy, fun and healing - both for themselves and the planet ..."

"You play each note with such energy and joy!"

" ... Piano and vocals in a warm, folk/jazz vein ... "

~ Ticket - The Seattle Times

"Passionate and purposeful, as she reaches into her stylistic toolbag to express the spirit of each song, her strength is in her versatility ... "

~ Dr. Kate Clark - University of Ohio

"Your musicianship is amazing ... but what moves me most is the words ... you are, indeed, on a journey, and you bring us all along."

~ Linda Allen, Singer-Songwriter

"You play beautiful melody like they did in the old days - I can actually tell what song you're playing."

~ Dignified elderly gentleman (Nov 30, 2010)

"You are a great vocalist, a fine pianist, and a wonderful writer. The writing is excellent poetry in its own right on both albums. I have listened to Goddess Rising many times. It captures the warmth and the sadness of your life. It fits perfectly as a first CD effort since it tells the listener all about you. I consider it very intimate, forceful and at the same time uplifting. However, "Girl Gone Jazz" for us enthusiasts of the genre, is a quantum leap in the annals of your ability. Each and every song is GREAT. Your talent has grown enormously ... your artistry has, not improved, necessarily, but as been honed into a fine skill: no hesitation anywhere, no wavering of the notes, no mistakes or slip ups that most ears could not detect anyway, and certainly a mellowness that shines through exactly when it is needed."

~ Jack Titus

"We love Sandra. She is a warm, talented woman."

~ Cynthia Stafford, Bellevue, WA
