07/04/2005 Peter Quinn, Jazzwise Magazine

Incorporating everything from new age grooves, township music and trip hop to the piano/vocal ballad and even a four-to-the-floor remix, the album’s title track ‘Life Arrested’, ‘Song For My Children’ and ‘No Limits’ all make an immediately deep impression. Dunn possesses a rich vocal timbre, big range and an idiosyncratic vibrato that is used to effect on end words. She can also conjure up some wonderful backing vocal arrangements. The singer receives some excellent support from her pool of musicians, with guitarist Andy Christie’s versatility and powerful soloing making a particularly big impression...

“The debut release by jazz vocalist and pianist Julie sees her joining a commanding array of talent including trumpeter Ray Butcher and sax demon Ben Waghorn in presenting a delightful set of cuts on the funky side. African elements provide a pleasant diversion from the mainstream on track three, Freedom Song, and underline Julie’s versatility. While a cover of Beth Chapman’s Every December Sky touches the heart, it is with her own material - No Limits and Song For My Children, for example - that Julie truly shines. Impressive.”

“Let me say straight away that I’m not a particular fan of jazz - why does it always sound better late at night? This album comes within the more accessible parameters of the genre, and the best thing about it is Julie Dunn’s pure, unforced voice. Standout songs for me are “Freedom Song” which also gets a bonus remix at the end of the album, and the plaintive “Every December Sky,” a beautiful ballad. Julie has gathered together some talented musicians - Ray Butcher’s brass arrangements are particularly pleasing - for an album which should appeal to a wide audience
