Katharine Whalen's Jazz Squad

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Rick Anderson
Singer and banjoist Katharine Whalen is one of the founding members of the Squirrel Nut Zippers, the North Carolina-based retro band whose joyful fusion of raw jump blues and hot jazz has been one of the most unlikely success stories of the 1990s. On her solo debut, Whalen steps out a bit though not entirely from the shadow of Billie Holiday, whose nasal, declamatory style has been a huge influence on Whalen from the beginning.

On her solo debut, Whalen steps out a bit though not entirely from the shadow of Billie Holiday, whose nasal, declamatory style has been a huge influence on Whalen from the beginning.

But she delivers "Yesterdays" with what almost sounds like a tribute to Holiday's delivery of the classic and controversial "Strange Fruit." The program ends with a strutting, ska-inflected version of "My Baby Just Cares for Me." Derivative or not, Whalen is a gifted chanteuse and a wonderful interpreter. Highly recommended.

    I came across Ms Whalen's music quite by accident. What a nice suprise! Fantastic voice, good tempo and... yes let's wait for her next album

    The Billie and Ella of our time

    Katherine Whalen is absolutely amazing. In ''Jazz Squad,'' she sings songs of previous jazz singers which are perfect for her voice, and in a way that doesn't make the listener wish to live in the past, but rather makes him glad that such talent exists today.
