“I wasn't aware of Ms. Jaz until I received a promotional disk in the mail. Before I opened the CD and started to listen to it I did I quick search on the internet and immediately found that she already has at least one album to her credit and a following in Cincinnati Ohio. Ms. Jaz arrived on the scene in 2002 with her CD "Chances". The web site "CD Baby" has posted news of her albums being named one of the Top Ten Albums of the year according to a Jazz station in British Columbia, Canada in 2003, and named by Cincinnati's Citybeat Magazine as one of the "Top Local Artists to Produce a CD on A National Level". So, the question needs to be asked - how come I haven't heard of her before this week? Bluntly, she's not the stereotypical new-comer. She's not young and slim and won't compete with the likes of Britney Spears, Lindsey Lohan or even Norah Jones. Nor should she have to - she deserves better. ”
