Cynthia Holiday - Lady Swings The Blues at Showmans Jazz Club - Jan. 9th & 10th 9:30pm, 11:30pm, 1:30am * Guest Drummer Winard Harper
"Cynthia is well studied, as she seeks to continue the tradition of jazz women who sing the blues, a style that, in my observation, has become a lost art among vocalists. I hear the humor of Helen Humes, the soul of Ernestine Anderson, the warm timbre of Mary Stallings and story telling of Marlena Shaw. But, make no mistake, what we hear is pure Cynthia Holiday."
~ Sheila E. Anderson, WBGO 88.3 FM Jazz Radio Host
"I met Cynthia several years ago when I used to frequent various jam sessions in Harlem clubs. I was struck by her ability to quickly command the stage. Cynthia has a fantastic stage presence and it's time for her music to be heard."
~ Kevin Mahogany, jazz singer/educator
"Cynthia Holiday is a breath of fresh air that should be inhaled deeply."
~ NY Trends Review
"Cynthia Holiday has the right look and a competitive instrument."
~ Carl Griffin, N-Coded Music Producer
"Singer Cynthia Holiday is a woman who can truly put on a show."
~ Matt Rogers, NY Amsterdam News
"She may have been unfamiliar to the audience, but Holiday quickly won over the crowd with her blues-soaked swing and charming banter."
~ Hartford Courier, Music Review
