Here We Go Again review round up!

Here We Go AgainOver the last couple of months there have been some great reviews of Here We Go Again around the jazz blogosphere, my press page has pretty much exploded! So many nice things have been said that I wanted to share some of my favourite quotes with you. If you want to read the entire review, just click on the name and publication. Here we go (again!)

C. Michael Bailey, all about jazz:

“Intimate may best describe [Here We Go Again]. Yoxon’s writing and voice are clearly out there with no net. Even on the more up-tempo ‘Just As We Are,’ Yoxon sings as if telling a humorous secret.”

John Book, This Is Book’s Music:

“In songs like ‘There’s Only You’, ‘Have We Been In Love Before?’ and the passionate ‘Drinking Coffee’, you hear someone who sings from personal experience, as if each song is a small note meant to be put up on the wall before its adhesiveness fades and becomes another not-so-distant memory”

John Peters, The Borderland:

“Ms Yoxon has a fine voice – intense and full of clarity and resolve. This is matched by Mr Ferguson’s piano and trombone and together they have certainly created something very special as a debut album.”

Brian Arsenault, The International Review of Music:

“Something [from Here We Go Again] may enter the Great American Songbook, maybe more than one.”

Susan Frances, Yahoo! Voices:

“A collection of original jazz compositions that explore the themes of love and loss, Here We Go Again has torch song clarity with fissures of folk, blues, and Judy Garland-tinged soul.”

That’s it for now! Thank you to everyone who took the time to listen to Here We Go Again and write such thoughtful reviews. If you are interested in reviewing Here We Go Again please contact Kari Gaffney from Kari-On Productions.
