Somerset, New Jersey -- Jazz vocalist PJ Parker's latest CD, Dreams Are Meant For Two, continues to receive critical praise, this time from the venerable Jazz Hot magazine of Paris, France.

At the same time, 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 5,600 times, making it the site's third-most downloaded track in the last 90 days.

In its praise of Dreams, Jazz Hot calls it “a sincere jazz, beautifully sung, well-accompanied."

“This is classic jazz... a pleasure to hear," says Jazz Hot. PJ, the magazine continues, has “a light and silky voice that we see is at the service of a beautiful sensibility."

The CD was included in JazzPolice.com's “Favorite Recordings of 2008: Vocaluminaries" list. In including Dreams on the list, JazzPolice called PJ&'s performance “magic."

Dreams Are Meant For Two is a heartfelt collection of 12 jazz classics and three of PJ's originals: aside from the title track and “So What Do You Say?" PJ also wrote “Love's A Logistical Thing."

Joining PJ on this recording are the stellar musicians Vinnie Ruggieri on piano, Earl Sauls on bass, Tim Horner on drums, Joel Frahm on sax and Coleman Mellett on guitar.

Coleman tragically lost his life in the Continental Express plane crash outside of Buffalo, N.Y. on Feb. 12, 2009. A personal tribute from PJ and the rest of the “Dreams" band appears on PJ's Web site.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place 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 effort that will help musicians 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 bottom right video ad). Thank you.
