Despite the adventurous nature of this date, beauty is the prime component, not just on the three lovely ballads – McCoy Tyner's "You Taught My Heart to Sing" (with lyrics by Sammy Cahn), Bill Engvick and Alec Wilder's "The Lady Sings the Blues" and the touching duet with Cables, "Young and Foolish" – but throughout the entire album.

"Of all singers currently on the scene, Jay is one of the least contrived or programmed and the most open and honest...I have yet to hear a Jay Clayton album that is not as much about the other players and the sport of music-making itself as it is about her. "Brooklyn 2000" is no exception...she demonstrates once again that she has an unerring ear for great songs along with a knowing savvy about making them work. McCoy Tyner's and Sammy Cahn's "You Taught My Heart to Sing" is a lovely tune but so full of starts and stops, premature tonics disruptive of continuity, that I had not heard it done justice until Jay's performance here. She resists overblown emotional rhetoric, connects the right phrases, and makes it seem, well, like child's play. That's what the best jazz, if not all creative art, is about--and Jay is one of the few surviving singers who can take us there." - Amazon
