Bob Perkins, DJ, WRTI Temple Jazz Radio..'Doris Spears is the name, remember it. Once you hear her you won't forget the sound, and her powerful but warm testament of Jazz, Blues, Ballads, and whatever else she's more than qualified to musically deliver.'
K.S.-Philadelphia Inquirer, 'Trenton based singer Doris Spears proves to be a sultry handful. The vocalist, who was hired by Lionel Hampton, and Iconic Saxophonist, Von Freedman, back in the day ranges from lusty to downright reverential on this release by the Philly based Dreambox label. The session is straight ahead jazz and Spears doesn't need tricks to show herself.'
