Linda Sedio has released a cover version of Etta James' "At Last." Sedio's cover (written by Harry Warren and Mack Gordon) is recorded with a great vibe and a great emotion. For the release of this project, she chose a glamorous appearance to give this classic all its charm. Many people will surely be charmed by her voice, her beauty, her great emotion, but the most important thing today for her is to give a best visibility to this challenge. Linda Sedio Says: "From Diana Ross, Tina Turner, Aretha Franklin until Etta James, I've always been rocked by soul music and the choice of 'At Last' was the strongest for a cover version. It's an amazing loving song and love is everything we need in our everyday life. Not only at Christmas or Valentine's Day... but all the time. So it's a real and immense happiness for me to share my version with all the lovers of soul and blues music." ~    


"Hearing a performance by Lisa Donna is like visiting the rich vocal Jazz tradition of Ella, Billie, Carmen and Sarah. Her scat singing is off the chart and her ballads will touch your heart. LIsten for Lisa Donna!!! She is a bright star in the future of Jazz!"~ Bill Augustine (Jazz Pianist/Producer/Jazz Educator)
"The eight tracks on "Someone in Love," Del Rey singer Lisa Donna's newly released album of popular contemporary jazz, are mostly originals, with a couple of covers (standards "Like Someone in Love," "It Never Entered My Mind") interspersed. As the CD's title implies, Donna's musical obsession is primarily the universal topic of romance."~ Michael Aushenker (The Argonaut News) ~


Dian Meechai's debut album Stormy Weather is a celebratory blend of Christmas music, jazz standards and classical arias. The album is divided into two sections, Christmas Cocktails and Sunday Service. Each section reflects the various spirits of the holiday season.  Christmas Cocktails begins the festivities with familiar jazz songs such as "The Way You Look Tonight" and "They Can't Take That Away From Me." Listeners are invited to dance "Cheek to Cheek" with a loved one, cozy up to the sentimental sounds of "Christmas Time is Here" and "Over the Rainbow," or take a spirited turn to the groovy "Santa Baby." For Sunday Service, the mood becomes more intimate as the drummer and bassist step away. Dian transports the listener to their own personal recital with holiday classics such as "Silent Night" and "O Holy Night." By including sweet arias such as "Mesicku na nebi hlubokem," she creates a scene reminiscent to those found in the novels of Jane Austen. "The holiday season is my favorite time of year," Dian says. "I hope to bring some of my mushy spirit into your home." Dian is accompanied on Stormy Weather by renowned jazz pianist Dan Zemelman, drummer Greg Wyser-Pratte, and bassist Mike Bordelon. ~
