ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"The CD is simply exquisite! Everything about it: vocals, arrangements, and variety. I really can't say enough. I wonder if Oscar [Brown Jr.] ever got a chance to hear your Dat Dere. I'm sure he would have been delighted.Your album is a breath of fresh air from San Francisco!" - Norman Curtis, New York based BMI songwriter and composer, Oscar Brown Jr.’s music collaborator from 1955-60; pianist who has performed in Europe and extensively in the U.S.
*****
SELECTED AS ONE OF THE TOP CABARET CDs of 2003 - "Linda Kosut's LIFE IS BUT A DREAM - the lady is incredible, the CD a gem!" --- Stu Hamstra, www.CabaretHotlineOnline.com
*****
BEST OF THEATRE 2006 - Tom E. Kelley & Albert Goodwyn, San Francisco Bay Times
*****

" ... listening to the clear, open, melodic voice of LINDA KOSUT ... it's musical, it's lyrical ... on her ballads I wanted to dance a slow dance with a lithe and beautiful woman. The ballads work, the jazz works, and so do the side trips into country and comedic. Her band, led by Max Perkoff, is a perfectly-timed ensemble that gently lifts each song. Entertaining from start to finish." News & Reviews from New York, Performing Arts INSIDER, and lively-arts.com, Richmond Shepard

"Her radiant smile lights up the intimate space, immediately capturing the attention and hearts of her audience... she's the real thing...the multi-talented Kosut...has a fantastic sense of dynamics within her songs. She knows just when to play it small and quiet, and when to let 'er rip...a perfect accompaniment to dinner with friends." - San Francisco Bay Times, Tom W. Kelly

"Kosut can share more of her life in one song than three full hours of episodic television ... Singers such as Kosut are on their own, standing in the spotlight giving the audience that rare immediate intimacy that any good director or producer would envy to have for a show." - Jonathan Farrell, independent reporter, San Francisco

A must have..this CD is truly remarkable!
I cannot stop listening to this amazing combination of Linda's beautiful ballads and her upbeat tunes, filled with personality and smiles! My personal favorites are "Dat Dere", "What You'd Call a Dream", and "If I Were a Bell". Linda's voice is smooth, sultry, and telling. This CD is a must have, TRULY REMARKABLE!

I loved it!
Linda's voice is rich and deep and fluid -- it isthe evocative voice of a professional. And what touched me was that I heard in her singing the realization of dreams, the accomplishments after hard work, the satisfactions, and the love.

Jason Emanuel Britton, Singer/Choreographer/Coach

Moving, simple, pure and emotional are words I can use...
Linda Kosut is a singer with an ability to emotionally
connect with a song and an audience. She chooses material
that benefits from her simple and pure delivery. You can
feel her heart in every song. Buy it! And see her in
concert too!
