REVIEWS:  “It is a mystery why Boston area songwriter, Harriet Goldberg is not on the national scene writing songs for Diana Krall and Michael Buble. Her sophisticated blend of romantic, urbane lyrics with infectious melodies set to swing, bossa nova, or jazz tempos present themselves as standards that could easily have been sung by Nancy Wilson, Sarah Vaughn, or Betty Carter.”                                  

                                    John Amodeo Edge on the net March 2012

“The highlights of the evening are the Harriet Goldberg jazzy " '40s" songs. She can channel that style and sophistication like no one else and put it over seamlessly...The lyricism and mood just about take your breath away. You know what they always say. They don't write 'em like that any more but they're wrong. Goldberg does.”
