The City of Dizzy


As CD Baby shut down their shop, DOWNLOAD CARDS for my CD ‘The City of Dizzy’ are available to order at info@sophieduner.com. Eternally grateful for the CD review: “This album is a killer. Nearly every track comes at you like an assault of rhythm in which the twists and turns of the music keep you on the edge of your seat.” “Improvising like a jazz horn. Many such singers have claimed this distinction, but only a handful, Dunér, Mark Murphy and Anita O’Day among them, have ever really achieved this.” “There’s an elemental, animal excitement in everything Dunér sings that grabs you by the throat and pulls you out of complacency.” – The Art Music Lounge.
