Album Description

#1 Jazz CD nationwide —JazzWeek **** 4 STARS "Excellent" —DOWNBEAT **** 4 STARS —AllMusicGuide "Highly Recommended" —AllAboutJazz. "Superb, Mesmerizing" —JAZZTIMES "THERE ARE A FEW TRULY SPECIAL JAZZ VOCALISTS ON THE SCENE TODAY WHO CAN RIGHTFULLY CLAIM THE THRONES OF THE LATE SARAH VAUGHAN, CARMEN MCCRAE, BILLIE HOLIDAY AND EVEN ELLA FITZGERALD. IN THAT RARE CLASS IS JACKIE RYAN. On "You and the Night and the Music," she sings one of the best pure jazz sets that I've heard in a long time. Her perfect pitch and three octave range is both emotional and stylish. The songs Ms. Ryan has selected are truly great vehicles for her wonderful voice. Every song she sings is awesome. With her sultry tender alto and sensual looks, Jackie Ryan will cast her romantic spell on you and believe me, you'll like it. This CD is the perfect mood maker." — PAULA EDELSTEIN SoundsOfTimelessJazz.com "IF JACKIE RYAN'S DEEPLY IN LOVE, YOU'D GUESS IT FROM HER SUCCULENT PERFORMANCE ON HER RICHLY EMOTIVE FOURTH ALBUM. HER POWERFUL, FINELY NUANCED VOICE FREELY AND DYNAMICALLY REPHRASES MELODIES TO ENVELOP THE LISTENERS IN SPARKLING FANTASIAS. Her supporting cast revels in the love tryst: Red Holloway's burly, extroverted horn adds jazz gravitas and good humor, just as Carol Robbins' harp sprinkles stardust on "Moonlight" and Tamir Hendelman's piano wields draping chords on "Wild Is The Wind." In two half-hour sets — bookended with formal ballads in duos with Robbins ("You Are There") and guitarist Larry Koonse ("While We're Young") — Ryan purrs with exquisite enunciation and resonant delivery. Her command of Spanish on "Besame Mucho" and Brazilian panache (Milton Nascimento-like reaches framing "Never Let Me Go") add to her arsenal." —Fred Bouchard, DOWNBEAT
