CD Reviews

The True Ideal...
R.B. Duncan | California, USA | 10/31/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"For music lovers that are listening for the type of jazz vocalist that leaves you spellbound and a case of goosebumps after each song, then Anna Callahan is the sweet little remedy for you. Her voice is rich and refined, along with her pristine songwriting/arranging skills to compliment her vocals & musicians. Her trumpet playing is playful and possesses a tone that blends between Chet Baker and Miles Davis. "My Ideal" is one of my favorite albums and I always love digging into her vibes. I strongly encourage any music lover to add this into their music library."
What a Lovely First Effort
Craig T. Case | Oklahoma City, Oklahoma United States | 02/03/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I hear Chet Baker, Ella Fitzgerald, a little Dave Brubeck and Sarah Vaughn here but it's all Anna. She authored or co-authored 5 of the 11 tracks and is the arranger and producer as well. What makes this disc sparkle, though, is her generous sharing of the spotlight. Karen Hammack (piano), Barry Zweig (guitar), Rick Shaw (bass), and Jamey Tate (drums) all get their moments as well and they certainly make the most of their solos. Anna's lovely vocals and understated horn playing on "My Ideal" is a real treat. Take a few moments and download a track or two. This is one of the loveliest and most relaxing disks in my record library."
