ABOUT "SOON":
With a debut showing on JazzWeek at #55 and great reviews with "Tender Trap" in 2005, Amanda Carr releases, "SOON", again on the Original Music label with her signature guitar trio led by John Wilkins and produced by drummer, Kenny Hadley. This 12-song homage to the Great American Songbook is executed with flair and style, but remains organic with her trademark taste in tunes, arrangements and musicians. Her distinctive sound and natural phrasing soar over a landscape populated with vocal acrobatics, again proving she has the depth and maturity to deliver this material, yet with a delightful vulnerability that keeps it accessible and fresh. This CD is a 'must have' if you're a current Amanda fan or would like to add a new jazz vocalist to your list of favorites. So don't wait any longer and get this CD, "Soon".

“ Amanda Carr, a true jazz singer in a time of wannabes. . . she sings and swings with the unaffected confidence of a genuine jazz improviser. Unlike some of the present alleged jazz vocalists, Ms. Carr does not try to imitate a horn. She is an authentic musician in the front line with her longtime colleagues on "Soon" . . .” NAT HENTOFF, from the Wall Street Journal article, 9/5/07

JAZZ IMPROV NYC While a “new standards” movement has been brewing for a while, there are still plenty of musicians guarding and promoting the old chestnuts from the Great American Songbook. Vocalist Amanda Carr is one such person.. and she does so with great style and class.... While the popularity and longevity of these songs is based on their lyrical and musical content, the ultimate success lies in the delivery and Carr proves to be an ace in this department. Dan Bilawsky, September 2007

“Amanda Carr is the real thing, and yes, I would pay to hear her sing the phone book.”… Tai Irwin, The Boston Herald

"Amanda Carr, jazz vocalist, has raised the bar on interpreting the American Songbook! In her fourth excursion as leader, "Soon", she avoids the common practices of excessive scatting, melody altering and emotionalism. Amanda's understated, comfortable approach and shear vocal beauty urge you to keep listening. Beautifully sung, swinging, in tune, with gorgeous phrasing, every track is a praise-worthy tribute to many neglected gems, including the title track "Soon", "Easy Street", "Funny", and "Where Can I Go". Tastefully seasoned with terrific arrangements, outstanding musicians,and a wonderful song selection, "Soon" rises to the top of an ocean of new vocal CDs. If you don't pick it up "Soon", you might be too late." Monica Hatch, Vocalist and Jazz Matinee Host WICN Radio 90.5 FM (npr)
