CD Reviews

New and Classic come together...
Mark Savary | Seattle, WA | 11/30/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This was yet another CD I tripped across from an artist I had not yet heard of. Now I can't get enough of it.Sutton has a good command of the Classic jazz sound, yet puts a new edge on it. At times she brings to mind Ella, at other times, the newer style of Diana Krall or Karrin Allyson. Now, naturally, no one wants to say anyone is as good as Ella, since that is on a par with committing sacrilege. Kind of like comparing Jet Li with Bruce Lee. Bruce Lee will always outshine Jet Li because, awesome talent of both men notwithstanding, Bruce Lee has a mystique and legendary status. "There will never be another Fred Astaire," is the common refrain that comes to mind. There will never be another Ella.But we must remember that Bing Crosby was all the rage for years, and then came Frank Sinatra. Was Frank better than Bing? Or was Frank just different, with a newer style, that picked up the musical torch passed by Bing? I know I've heard many, many singers who can't hold a candle to Ella, but better? I don't know about better, but at times Sutton comes fairly close to Ella, at least, as close as any newer artist I've heard. She can do some serious scat, which is evident on a few of these cuts ("The Song Is You", "Footprints/My Favorite Things"). Her voice is strikingly clear, and she has a great sense of timing and phrasing.The selections on the disc move easily from slow ballads to smoky siren songs, to some really jazzed up standards (Again, "The Song Is You", as well as "My Heart Stood Still" and "If I Were a Bell"). Solid arrangements compliment each cut nicely.While she may not be the next Ella, Sutton might be to Ella what Frank was to Bing; not the next copycat, but rather someone to pick up where the other left off. All in all, this is an excellent jazz CD, and I think you'll be quite pleased with this new artist whether you're a fan of the Classic style of Ella, or the newer style of Krall or Allyson."
Tierney is a Fantastic Vocalist

"I am always looking for new jazz vocalists. I chose this CD because it was recommended. It is hard to believe that we have not heard much more about the wonderful voice of this jazz artist. Everthing about her is really great. The tone of her voice, her enunciation, her versatility, her selection of songs. I find my self listening to this CD very often and I never tire of hearing Tierney's voice. Every so often she reminds me of Sarah Vaughn in the variety of ways she approaches each song and with the beautiful tone of her voice."
Incredible voice - a wonderful introduction

"Ms. Sutton's vocal passion is front and center on this, her first CD. Her ability to interpret these standards and make them her own will make this a delightful addition to anyone's jazz collection. The various tracks, which run from uptempo "bee bop" tunes to haunting, sorrowful melodies, allow her full range to come through. Ms. Sutton is a very talented singer, and I highly recommend this inspiring CD. As someone who enjoyed her early live work, I always hoped that she would enter the studio to share her gifts with a wider audience. Thank you, Tierney."
