What The Press Is Saying About Marlene's New CD
Downbeat Magazine April, 2016 5 stars
Jazz Journal Int'l March 2016 5 stars
…A fine interpreter of classic standards and always works well in a swinging context…All in all, quite one of her best. - Peter Vacher Jazzwise May 2016
A singer of taste who concentrates on the lyrics, her album is an unhackneyed collection of mostly lesser known but worthy tunes by Duke Ellington, Bobby Troup, Harry Warren, and others. One of the better known songs, Burton and Lerner's "Too Late Now, " is as fine a rendition as any I've heard.
- Barry Bassis The Epoch Times
"The Mood I'm In", Marlene with, The best of the British, John Pearce, Paul Morgan, Bobby Worth, Mark Nightingale and Andy Panayi. Below are excerpts from the world wide reviews, USA, UK, Italy, Russia, etc.
"Marlene swings the high notes here, ... one of the finest small ensembles you've ever recorded with" - Marc Myers, Wall St Journal and Jazz Wax
"A wildly winning set throughout, this is a master class on jazz vocal that you better show up on time for"
- CHRIS SPECTOR Midwest Record
"the voice as bell-like clear and her brisk, no-nonsense but jazzy approach characterized as refreshing and ever-youthful. But facts are facts and the long-revealed truth, like her sound, remains as clear as that inevitably conjured-up bell."
- Rob Lester, Talkin' Broadway
It's real jazz by a true master, and in addition - a magnificent and unique example of an active creative longevity. Bravo, Marlene! - Leonid Auskern (from Russia)
"She confirmed, she is a very valuable singer who acts as a consummate storyteller..there is thanks to the total empathy with British musicians"
-Vittorio Lo Conte (Italy)
"Marlene VerPlanck remains at the top of her field"...
-Bob Rusch January, Cadence Magazine
"Marlene VerPlanck keeps acquiring superlatives in reviews of her albums and performances, and The Mood I'm In, shows exactly why!" -Joe Lang, NJJS
"...elegant compilation of standards, familiar an neglected"
-Alix Cohen, Cabaret Scenes
"Congrats! THE MOOD I'M IN is top notch"
-Elliott Eames WVOX AM 1460 & worldwide WVOX.COM
