Overview

Jackie Ryan is a talented jazz singer who has a strong, attractive voice and a subtle improvising style. On her third recording, she is heard in prime form interacting with the great tenor saxophonist Red Holloway (who is on five of the 14 selections) and some of Los Angeles' top musicians. The instrumentation changes from track to track with Ryan excelling on tender duets with harpist Carol Robbins ("You Are There") and guitarist Larry Koonse ("While We're Young"). She swings hard on "You'd Be So Nice to Come Home To," puts plenty of feeling into "Besame Mucho" and sounds joyful on "I Just Found out About Love." No matter the setting or the mood expressed, Ryan shows that she is a force to be reckoned with. Recommended.

There are a few truly special jazz vocalists on the scene today who can rightfully claim the thrones of the late Sarah Vaughan, Carmen McCrae, Billie Holiday and even Ella Fitzgerald. In that rare class is Jackie Ryan. On YOU AND THE NIGHT AND THE MUSIC, she sings one of the best pure jazz sets that I've heard in a long time. Her perfect pitch and three octave range is both emotional and stylish. The songs Ms. Ryan has selected are truly great vehicles for her wonderful voice. They are comforting, intimate and cool. With special guest Red Holloway and her core group, Jackie Ryan creates "a strange kind of chemical change that goes rushing through you" on such songs as "You'd Be So Nice To Come Home To" "Wild Is The Wind" and "Never Let Me Go." Those are only a few of the gems on this CD, but every song she sings is awesome. With her sultry tender alto and sensual looks, Jackie Ryan will cast her romantic spell on you and believe me, you'll like it. This CD is the perfect mood maker, so check her out. PAULA EDELSTEIN
