...'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.
"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
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.

"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."
