SOMERSET, NJ -- “Lovely," “tasteful," “a pleasure" are some of the ways in which Larry Taylor describes jazz vocalist PJ Parker's most recent CD, Dreams Are Meant For Two in the latest review praising the singer's third release.

Of the title song, which Parker wrote to her late father's music, Taylor writes, “Her feelings come across. It is a lovely song, full of genuine emotion; she does it justice in her soft, rich voice."

Commenting on another of the three original songs Parker created for this collection Taylor writes, “Accolades do go to her own 'Love's A Logistical Thing.' The catchy lyrics and charming, lightly swinging vocal are a pleasure."

Taylor also has high praise for the musicians accompanying Parker on the recording: Vinnie Ruggieri on piano, Earl Sauls on bass, Tim Horner on drums, Joel Frahm on sax and Coleman Mellett on guitar.

Writing about “Logistical," Taylor notes that “Frahm's lyrical noodling on alto, along with Ruggieri's jaunty piano are irresistible."

Commenting on Parker's take on “Long Ago and Far Away," Taylor writes that “her casually swinging scat vocal on this aided by Mellett's guitar accompaniment are highlights."

“Her father's memory," Taylor writes, “is properly honored on the CD."

Jazz fans from around the world continue to let their preferences be known: PJ's artist profile page at AllAboutJazz.com--the most popular jazz Web site in the world--is now the 6th most popular among living jazz artists, and 14th among all jazz artists profiled on the site.

And the MP3 of PJ's original “So What Do You Say?“ has been downloaded more than 6,000 times from the site.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
