If you want to know what real jazz singing can be (but rarely is), listen to Judy NIEMACK ... She is a musician in the truest sense, having mastered her instrument (a beautiful one), and her chosen language and crafted her own style" DAN MORGENSTERN (DOWN BEAT)
Judy NIEMACK is a real jazz singer. Her delivery of lyrics is full of emotion and elegance, while in her scat singing she is a consummate musician, exploring the music like a virtuoso horn player. While she completed her Classical vocal studies as a coloratura soprano, she sang jazz from the time she was 17 years old, and comes out of the mainstream jazz tradition, breaking new ground with original lyrics, arrangements and a modern approach to standards. She has a dual career as performer and vocal jazz educator. In addition to having her eighth CD as a leader released on Sony Jazz in 2003, her book & CD Hear It & Sing It! – Exploring Modal Jazz", was published by Second Floor Music (distributed by Hal Leonard) in July 2004.
Guitarist Jeanfrançois Prins' music is lyrical and passionate. While grounded in hard-swinging Jazz tradition, he enjoys risk-taking improvisation and organic interaction.
A real voice on the guitar with a warmth that’s all his own" - Joe Lovano ...there can be no doubt that this truly creative and musical young man will continue to be heard from. But don’t wait for his next record - catch him live!" Dan Morgenstern
