Ms Jaz / Press

“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. ”

“LOS ANGELES (Creativity in Music) - The smoky and soulful vocals of Cincinnati's Ms. Jaz are highlighted on her new live CD " Me Too Live" recorded in concert at the prestigious Chez Nora's "Rooftop". Ms. Jaz is backed by her stellar band helmed by musical director and bassist Kerry Jordan. The CD features a great live version of the title track which is a Ms. Jaz original. Plus, Ms. Jaz performs exciting takes on classic songs such as "Boy From Ipenema" and Sade's "Sweetest Taboo".”

“Besides a few minor flaws, you can actual feel the mood of The Rooftop Jazz Room at the Chez Nora Restaurant when this was recorded. I can actually feel or sense the flavor that was in the air that night and I have a slight bit of envy for not being their the night the album was recorded. That's what great jazz does - it's sets the mood of the evening. Listening to this album makes it hard for anyone to feel anything else but besides romantic and happy. This is a good live album and has me looking forward to listening to other albums of hers in the future. ”
