Maureen Kennedy / Press

“If only other emerging jazz singers were able (or willing) to produce a song selection as fresh as this one. ”

“Toronto jazz singer Maureen Kennedy clearly owes a good part of her style to the cool femme vocalists of the 1950s and '60s. There's a lot of the vibrato-less vocal technique of singers like Helen Merrill and Irene Kral in her delivery, even though she doesn't particulary sound like either of them. In addition to having a distinct jazz vocal style, Kennedy stands out on the basis of the song selection on this album, her debut. If only other emerging jazz singers were able (or willing) to produce a song selection as fresh as this one. ”
