ALL ABOUT JAZZ ITALIA
"Her sensibility and smarts are what make her songs" - Michael Coyle
"Textually, her occasionally cryptic lyrics explore the vagaries of male-female relationships with a wryness, authenticity, and humor that springs from real life experienceno starry eyed romanticism here." - David Kane
Sophie Dunér comes up with something personal and persuasive to say......Joan Armatrading in her warm, folksy way of phrasing .....a little Anita O’Day in there too.....reminds me of the mellower side of Patty Waters mixed with Nina Simone.....Yma Sumac-evocative octave leaps"
- Derek Taylor
( English version )
"Sophie Dunér is much more than just a ( jazz ) singer. With her incredible width, the possibilities of her voice and loads of imagination, she creates her own song universe between jazz, chanson, folk and fast poetry slam songs and could create an addiction. And with her love for Duke Ellington, that surely would sharpen his ears if he had heard her version of ”Caravan”, ”Lush Life” etc Ani di Franco with a hat but more jazzy......"
- Peter Bickel
I was impressed by her form-filling yet ethereal vocal integration within a jazz combo and also by her original compositions. Sophie Dunér is both a personal and original singer and a composer of substance In addition, she has written over half of the tunes for this stunning release, originals as notable as the standards she chose to accompany them. This is a memorable vocalist, composer/lyricist, and presentation. "
- Bob Rusch, Producer
