Reviews

 

01/06/0007 Bruce Crowther, Jazz Journal International

Although her reputation initially rested largely upon extensive jazz club and concert work in the North of England, airplay on BBC national radio of her debut CD began much more widespread approval of her work. Julie Edwards has a very pleasing voice, which she uses thoughtfully to create original and interesting interpretations of standards and jazz songs. Especially attractive, is Julie's obvious delight in singing, something that she readily communicates to her audience. The first of these three CDs offers good accompaniment from a rhythm section and the saxophones and flute of Kevin Dearden. One of the best debut CDs I have heard in quite a while, and which indicated the start of something good. These thoughts were confirmed and amplified with the release of Connections, a set that clearly demonstrated growth and maturity in two artists who were already forces to be reckoned with. Delightful interpretations of fine songs abound; singing and playing are of the very highest order.

With the third set, the growth of this singer continues and she brings maturity in sound and sensibilities to a very attractive selection of songs that are mostly familiar but far from overused. There are also a few songs rarely heard while the title song is an original by Julie and Kevin. This is a selection to savour and if you are unfamiliar with this singer's work it is a very good place to start. You won't be disappointed.
