Denise Jannah – Hammond Xperienz

With five recordings on the famous Blue Note label, Denise Jannah is a strong name when it comes to vocal art in Jazz. With her new band featuring Ratko Zjaca, Renato Chicco and Oleg Markov she goes on a large European Summer tour in 2019.

  • “This woman can make you dream, cry, and fall in love. What more could you desire…” (The Music Advocate)
  • “Quite simply, Denise Jannah is one of the best jazz singers to come along in the 25 years I’ve been writing about music.” (Award winning jazz author and critic Gary Giddins in the “Village Voice”)
  • “Jannah’s voice is fine – rich , certain and teeming with a candor undiminished by the artifice of record-making.” (Down Beat)
  • “If you’re having trouble keeping track of the score of female singers swamping the current jazz scene, let me save you some trouble: Denise Jannah is worth your time.” ( Detroit Free Press)
  • “Her voice is so direct, the delivery so fresh and clear that she will surely withstand the test of time.” (Jazz Times)
  • “Based in the Netherlands, singer Denise Jannah made a few records for Blue Note some years back, but she remains vastly underrated, one of the few singers around who truly meets the standards set down by the generations that gave us Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan and Carmen McRae. Her supple and spontaneous phrasing, exquisite intonation, respect for a lyric and richly textured yet clear-as-a-bell vocal color are the kind of qualities that never go out of style.” (by MARK STRYKER, Detroit Free Press Columnist)
