It's an honor to have reached this milestone -- 'thanks' to each and
every one of you for supporting my music thus far.
Louise is of Dutch origin and works and lives in Boston. But she is also a passionate
jazz fan, singer and composer. Yes Sir! The surprise is however her latest work,
a CD called ´Destiny´. It is a great album with great singing, great tunes
and she is accompanied by a bunch of great musicians. And co-produced by Rebecca
Parris. Highly recommended folks!" Bob van Eekhout, Bob's Jazz Blog
"JAZZ is a land of interpreters
and only occasionally of singer-songwriters. Yet Louise Van Aarsen, a Dutch-born,
Boston-based jazz vocalist, has arrived on the scene with a whole album of fresh
original songs and a unique voice. Louise's singing is cool yet worldly-wise; her
musicianship is so solid that she doesn't have to turn any vocal cartwheels to prove
her jazz credibility.
The words are her focus, and she delivers them a distinctive sound and complete directness.
Louise has given us an impressive debut CD. The backgrounds incorporate all sorts
of styles, including swing, Latin, fusion, and lush balladry. The instrumental details
support and never distract from Louise's storytelling, which always rings true." James
Gavin, Liner Notes to "Destiny"
"Like vocalists of another era, Van Aarsen's
voice is deeply committed, with a hint of Carly Simon. Dig Someone and the lightly
Latin Miss You Till I See You. Van Aarsen's originality and songwriting chops make
this a tender choice." MARC MYERS, Jazz Blog Jazzwax/Author of "Why Jazz
happened" (2012), JazzWax
