She has been described as "witty and entertaining" by Scott Yanow in L.A Jazz Scene. Glenn Mitchell in L.A. Jazz Scene and Jazz Police.com says she has "an unusually entertaining show."
Harvey Kubernick in "Canyon Of Dreams," released Oct. 2009, featured Libbie Jo in his section titled "Elegant People" along with Joni Mitchell. Named "Jazz Critic's Choice" by City Beat Los Angeles, reviewer Kirk Silsbee says, "Not only does Libbie Jo Snyder's sublime flute have a vocal quality, her singing is awfully close to her playing. The weight in her timbre, the subtle vibrato, the sure-toned held notes signify that she's at one with her instrument."
Recently, she has played on the soundtrack of the film "The Eastsiders" with music score by Los Angeles jazz icon Buddy Collette.
Her CD "The Flute & Voice of Libbie Jo," produced by pianist Jane Getz, was a finalist in an international jazz competition sponsored by Sony International and includes a bossa nova, "Summer At Last" featured in the film "Made Up," winner at the Santa Barbara Film Festival.
