Reviews

 

04/05/2004 Scott Yanow - LA Jazz Scene & Music Guide

Ms. Kline is a very intelligent singer in her choice of material, the notes she hits and the way she balances interpretations of lyrics with scatting. She sings in tune and her high notes are a joy to hear….For a singer to record a medley of "Tenderly" and "Midnight Sun" while only backed by a bassist shows either foolhardiness or a justifiable confidence in one's own singing. Fortunately the latter is true in this case.

 

10/03/2004 Frits Landesbergen - Baileo records, NL

The word that immediately came to my mind, when I listened to the new CD from Léah Kline is TASTE…..…..She is a real chameleon as a singer, feels at ease and sounds beautifully clear in all the songs she's recorded. I think that Léah is a very special singer and a great contribution to the Dutch and the international music scene.

 

05/02/2004 Craig W. Hurst - All about Jazz

With all of the jazz singers out and about today, Leah Kline is certainly one worthy of notice. Kline negotiates large mouthfuls of lyrics with insouciant aplomb and hipness. Kline's musical personality shines brightly .... an exciting stage presence ... when she performs live.

 

03/02/2004 Henk de Boer - Jazz Express

… she has let herself be known as a very versatile singer and entertainer who knows how to set not only a surefire swing number in motion, but also fascinating story-telling songs.
