CD Reviews

Kitty is a true jazz Goddess!
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The more I read about who is the next "it girl" in jazz vocals, the more I feel the need to speak up. After first reading about Kitty in the Chicago Tribune in 1989 and hearing her here on the radio, I have been following her career and recordings for over 10 years. I have test driven a lot of new "jazz" vocalists coming down the pike. Pretenders move aside. They all pale next to Kitty. K.M. has a 100% present, take no prisoners attitude. Her dualities are what fascinate me so: hip yet sweet, ironic yet sincere, hard burnin' yet poignant...on and on in this vein. Great, original song selection too. I won't compare her point for point with other singers, but I hear traces of Betty, Sarah, Flora and Ella. She has her own unique sound, very saxophonic.This particular CD (and I love all 3 of her CDs) stands out to me because of her chemistry with tenor sax legend Joe Henderson. She is musician enough to keep right up with Joe and he is actually taking lots of musical cues from her. This is the best voice/ horn pairing since Billie and Lester. And no folks, it is not because I have a weakness for redheads (even tho' I admit I do!) All I can say is treat yourself to the real thing. This girl has everything one looks for in a jazz singer and some things that never even occured to me until I heard her. Wish I could give it 1,000 stars. Get it. You won't be sorry if you like real jazz singing, but with a new spin."
Oh, yes . . .

"Throughout, Kitty Margolis makes the ears feel good and keeps the imagination tuned and surprised, but best of all are the smiles she brings in songs like I'm Old Fashioned and Ancient Footprint and the juice in her blues. This CD takes me away, somewhere wonderfully away."
Outstanding vocal album

"The scat solo on Anthropology is worth the price of admission, and the rest of the album is terrific too. Margolis and Joe Henderson sound great together, particularly on I'm Old Fashioned, Footprints, and Gone With the Wind. Finally a singer who takes real chances and can sing straight-ahead jazz too!"
