Reviews of Kris Gayle

 

06/06/2008 JACK MASSARIK - LONDON EVENING STANDARD

JAZZ CD OF THE WEEK – LONDON EVENING STANDARD 06/06/08 KRIS GAYLE8.00am (Big Milk Music)**** (4 stars out of 5) “Never assume that London monopolises British jazz talent, especially with sounds as sophisticated as these arriving from funky Falmouth. Startled by the opening track, Blue in Green, I searched for the likes of George Duke, Stanley Clarke or Nancy Wilson among the credits, finding instead local heroes such as keyboarder/arranger Viv Rodd, drummer/bass guitarist/producer Damian Rodd and singer Kris Gayle. Her vocal interpretations of All Blues, I’m All Smiles and It Never Entered My Mind are simply top-class. Luscious brass arrangements and expert sound-mixing add further Cornish cream to this unexpected treat.” JACK MASSARIK

 

01/05/0008 Peter Quinn, Jazzwise Magazine

Kris Gayle’s ‘8.00 am’ begins with a dreamy, blissed-out version of ‘Blue in Green’, and includes memorable interpretations of Ray Brown’s Grammy-winning ‘Gravy Waltz’, Cannonball Adderley’s classic ‘Sermonette’ and an unbelievably tender ‘Some Other Time’. Kris Gayle has an immensely likeable tone, an alluring way with ballads, and a dramatic credibility.

 

25/02/0008 Humphrey Lyttleton 'Best of Jazz' BBC Radio 2

"A favourite singer - her quality really sticks in the mind."

 

24/01/0008 "What's On"

"The album has a marvellous low-slung groove on songs by an ecelectic list of songwriters - Bill Evans, Rodgers & Hart, Cannonball Adderley, Miles Davis, Jerome Kern and Viv Rodd and Kris themeselves. Kris is a vocalist of great character and the album features some of the best jazz musicians in the South West region.

 

01/12/0007 "Kind of Cornish"

"I have now listened to this CD on several occasions and every time it finishes I feel like applauding. The new album is a tour de force and Cornwall is indeed lucky to have as a resident such a fine jazz songer."
