...'listen to this highly enjoyable release from Donna Singer and The Doug Richards Trio

...straight forward, no complications, and melodic, fun, enjoyable jazz.  Singer has an incredible voice.  I often found myself just listening to, and enjoying the music rather than writing the review.  I'd say that is a sign of something good.  ~Paul Wilson, Audiophile

"Singer keeps it upbeat where others like to slow it down and she lets you know how they feel. Singer apparently feels happy and good for her!...This is one of those more fun takes we've heard on jazz oldies in quite some time. Well done." ​~Chris Spector, Midwest Record

With her latest album Feeling the Jazz she brings it all together with her colleagues, the seasoned musicians of The Doug Richards Trio.  Mainstream Donna Singer—her “in-the-pocket” vocals intertwined with the strong musicianship of The Doug Richards Trio. Here is your chance to buy an energy filled CD with Donna's unique style.

Take The Day Off: Escape With Jazz
​​​​​​​H. Allen Williams 'JAZZ TIMES'  "Singer’s delivery of the melody of “Our Love Is Here To Stay” is full of interesting phrasing and her melodic ornamentation of various key notes is consistent. Her time is clear and her pitch is focused; vibrato is used liberally, but never to the point of distraction. The group is always supportive, especially pianist Billy Alfred, he leads Singer at the right moments and places plush supporting chords on the right melody notes."​  
"I reviewed Donna’s fine jazz vocal work back in issue # 141; enjoyed it greatly, and her high-energy is even more upscale on this album! She’s backed by the Doug Richards trio, & that adds a “real jazz” dimension to her zesty performances.  It takes a bit of suave to get me enthused about vocalists, probably just because there are so many of them on the scene today.  As you groove along with her to “Sweet Destiny“, though, you’ll realize this IS the kinda’ jazz your pops used to listen to… very comfortable & swingin’!  Her rendition of “Yesterday” is uniquely hers… she’ll easily wrap you into her svelte voice & bring back all kinds of memories.  My personal favorite of the nine tunes offered up for your groove is “Time After Time“… I totally dug this one.  I give Donna & crew a HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) rating of 4.98."

Feeling The Jazz

"Donna Singer is a first call vocalist...with an effervescent spirit and impeccable phrasing there is certainly no lack of talent."

~ Brent Black, @Critical Jazz

Midwest Record

DONNA SINGER/Feeling the Jazz: Ah, when subtle and grace collide...Singer tears it up one more time with accomplice Doug Richards and his gang for a set that doesn't need frills when it dazzles without really trying. Firmly in the classic jazz club mode, with a set card that echoes same, Singer is a jazz vocal gift to the jazz vocal fans. This set is sure to take you back, even if you weren't there the first time. Thrilling stuff that wrote the book on hitting all the right notes.

Donna's Jazz Schedule

Donna is an electrifying and dazzling jazz show-stopper. She graduated from the New York Academy of Theatrical Arts and has had formal training at Juilliard.  Her European concerts include Switzerland, Ireland, Italy and Wales. She has performed at the Metropolitan Opera Guild Recital Hall in Lincoln Center and Central Park's Naumburg Bandshell.  Donna’s 6th CD ‘Feeling The Jazz’ hit the ground running with her CD launch party at The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts Washington DC to a sold-out crowd.  She performed at the Nebraska International Jazz Festival, Bethany College Jazz Festival in Kansas, Saratoga Arts Festival in New York to name a few.  She sang the National Anthem at Sunrise Stadium home of the Miami Dolphins.  This summer she will be leading a seminar and jazz concert at Carnegie Hall NYC.

"The idea of quitting for a day (or more) is most appealing, under any circumstance - but as I groove to Donna's vocals on her totally hip rendition of "The More I See You", accompanied by pianist Billy Alfred & bassist Doug Richards, the temptation is ever stronger to take that holiday (like, forever, folks... lol). I give Donna & Doug a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, particularly for listeners who have gotta' have a toke of cool vocals each day.  "EQ" (energy quotient) rating is 4.97." ~Improvijazzation Nation Magazine

​​"If you are looking for a holiday treat that will warm your guests and lift your spirits for the season, do not miss the opportunity to add Kiss Me Beneath the Mistletoe to your holiday collection.  Certainly a kiss worth having." ~Constance Tucker, All About Vocals

"A nice mix of originals and holiday favorites couples with a more soulful presentation than most artists have the chops to deliver allows "Kiss Me Beneath The Mistletoe" to take flight as a solid Christmas release for most anyone in the market for new music this season. A sure fire winner!" ~Brent Black, @Critical Jazz 

"Easy going stuff made to look deceptively simple, Singer is a smart singer that knows how to move and groove with swing and verve delivering a Christmas record that really sounds like nothing you've heard before.  There seems to be a wave of different and creative Christmas records in the pipeline this year but this set is running at the head of the pack.  A good bet for the holidays."~Chris Spector, Midwest Record
