ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Cynthia's new release, featuring legendary guitarist Bucky Pizzarelli along with other renowned NYC players, offers examples of both her classic American Jazz & Roots Music plus her modern-day, eclectic explorations. Her best recording yet!!

"She takes us into places where you'd never expect the banjo to be admitted, and makes herself completely at home," says jazz giant DICK HYMAN about "ATTRACTIONS."

"Notable women in jazz have stood out as singers and sometimes as pianists. Cynthia Sayer has made her mark in the jazz world in an almost unheard of way, on banjo."
--INTERNATIONAL MUSICIAN JOURNAL

"Cynthia Sayer is a rarity: a woman who plays jazz banjo with the drive and virtuosity of banjo stars from the early 20th century."
--THE NEW YORK TIMES

"The results are mind blowing... A totally tasty, head turning, ear opening set that practically defines a genre on its own; this jazzy snazzy date will turn you into a fan in no time."
--MIDWEST RECORDS.COM

Selected for "Best CDs of 2007" List.
--JAZZ JOURNALISTS ASSOC, W.Royal Stokes

"Sayer's playing is far more expansive than the original performers on this instrument."
--ALL MUSIC GUIDE

"She can pick with the confidence of a bluegrass veteran or chomp as cleanly as Freddie Green"
--JAZZTIMES

""Versatile banjo stylings as well as a terrific no-nonsense vocal style... Her arrangements are just right, and her sense of showmanship and good humor makes the whole a fresh and exciting experience... She's expanding the whole concept of the banjo in her own way, much as Bela Fleck has also done in his way."
--AUDIOPHILE AUDITION

"She is tenacious in her ability to swing the juice out of anything that comes her way."
--JAZZWEEKLY.COM
