Jackie Ryan

Jackie teamed with GRAMMY Award winner John Clayton to deliver her chart- topping CD "Listen Here" - a tour de force through a myriad of jazz idioms — from blues and gospel flavored jazz gems, to luscious love songs, a soaring Spanish ballad, a Gershwin classic, pulsating samba rhythms, an original with lyrics penned by GRAMMY/Oscar/Emmy Award winners — all culminating with the title track: a stunning duet with 3-time GRAMMY nominee Gerald Clayton.

"Those who hear her are the fortunate ones," writes Howard Mandel - president, Jazz Journalists Association; "An astonishing contralto voice," (DOWNBEAT), thrilling audiences across the globe with her powerful 3 & 1/2 octave range and her magnetic stage presence - and amassing, along the way, an impressive array of records (three back-to-back #1 CDs on JazzWeek's nationwide chart) and glowing reviews.

Her previous outing - a double CD, "DOOZY" - featured Cyrus Chestnut, Eric Alexander, Jeremy Pelt, Carl Allen, Ray Drummond and Romero Lubambo, garnered universal praise (4-Stars from both DOWNBEAT and AMG), and held the #1 position nationwide on JazzWeek's industry-standard chart for a record-breaking 7 solid weeks

Read "More Than 3 Tenors" reviewed by H William Stine


They were superstars on their own, iconic names who didn't need first names: Carreras, Domingo, Pavarotti. The world loved them; and they loved the world -sometimes a little too literary. When they agreed to sing together, they went from superstars to superheroes: The Three Tenors. Three? Really? That's all it takes to be adored? I can ...

Baby Talk

Read "Baby Talk" reviewed by H William Stine


Taking baby steps—isn't that what I was doing in my driveway after the last snow storm? Out of the mouths of babes—isn't that why we put bibs on them? Sleep like a baby—I'm sure my audience can relate to that. Throw the baby out with the bath water—doesn't that just mean it's time to get your eyes examined? ...

Singing Their Praises

Read "Singing Their Praises" reviewed by H William Stine


Don't you love it when Nat Cole sings one of his signature songs, for instance, "Smile?" Someone else sang that this week. What about any recordings of Sinatra singing “Angel Eyes?" Someone else sang that too, because this week great singers and musicians paid tribute to other great singers and musicians in a two-hour love fest of ...

Read "Tom Lawton: Not Less Than Everything" reviewed by Victor L. Schermer


Not known, because not looked for But heard, half-heard, in the stillness Between two waves of the sea. Quick now, here, now, always-- A condition of complete simplicity (Costing not less than everything) --T.S. Eliot, Four Quartets; “Little Gidding" This poetic quotation ...

Groundhog Day

Read "Groundhog Day" reviewed by H William Stine


Explain to me again why we created a holiday to honor an ugly, destructive rodent and a misguided superstition while continuing to discredit the value of scientific facts in our lives? I based my Groundhog Day celebration on the classic movie and this rule: if you hear a song once this week, you're going to hear ...

Mark Winkler: The Company I Keep

Read "The Company I Keep" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky


The Beatles had it right when they noted that we get by with a little help from our friends. It's a fact that vocalist Mark Winkler can surely testify to.

Mark Winkler: The Company I Keep

Read "The Company I Keep" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey


The utility of music, at its very core, is entertainment. It is not all about dissonance and consonance, tonal conflict and resolution; heart and intellect, pathos and ethos. Somewhere in everything music has to offer, there must be a smile. It is in music's smile that vocalist Mark Winkler exists. An elegant West Coast mainstay, vocalist/lyricist/composer ...
