Libby York swings!

Florida Weekly -  Read Article

Libby York

“…a jazz singer of cool composure and artful subtlety…” Nate Chinen, New York Times

 

“…relaxed perfection…” C. Michael Bailey, All About Jazz

“…her wit and easy swing.” The New Yorker

“Her smokey voice will appeal to Diana Krall fans, but she is very much her own woman.” The Times of London

“Every so often a CD comes along that seems to have everything you want. Tunes and lyrics by the grand craftsmen of Tin Pan Alley, instrumental breaks by sympathetic musicians, and a singer who can interpret the GAsbook in the vocal traditions created by such as Ella, Peggy, Billie, Anita, Frank etc and yet retain his/her individuality. This is just such a disc!” Lance, Bebop Spoken Here 27 Live,
Evanston,IL 60201

“There are a lot of wonderful female vocalists on the scene today, and one of the best is LIBBY YORK.” Joe Lang, JerseyJazz

“They left the audience at the Kitano wanting more, but surely grateful for the memories.” Roark Littlefield, Stage Buddy

“Libby York is a fine singer, arranger and band leader. Her rapport with the group is so engagingly palpable you’ll wish you were in the studio absorbing their musically vibrant and positive energy live.” - Eric Harabadian, Jazz Inside Magazine

 

“… every inch Diana Krall’s equal …warm, intimate and imbued with a fogbound sexiness.” Christopher Louden, JazzTimes

 

“It’s hard to imagine a voice more suited to classic jazz standards than that of Libby York.” Roark Littlefielfd, Stage Buddy

 

“With ‘Thanks for the Memories’, the Chicago-born chanteuse has really taken ownership of this classic, and I hope it will remain one of her standards. She sings it like no one else, with all schmaltz and bonhomie long gone. What is left is a delightful, unabashedly wistful private moment with an old lover…she dazzles” Roark Littlefielfd, Stage Buddy
