“Carolbeth is a cornerstone of the St. Louis jazz scene, but also one of the hardest working jazz educators this town has ever seen! Her quartet Two Times True features three of the city’s most notable players, Dave True, Glen Smith and Larry Johnson. Their work together shows Carolbeth’s playing in a very powerful light.”
— Michael Silverman
