I GOT IT!
I GOT IT!
I GOT IT! Finally, tonight, after listening to Kim Nalley, I understand the Blues! Or have at least begun to understand and actually appreciate the genre. In fact, not more than two days ago I just made the comment to someone that I did not enjoy the Blues. I just returned from a Kim Nalley performance tonight at the restaurant Downtown in Berkeley with two friends and immediately purchased both her CDs. Kim Nalley and her band, are solely responsible for my "Jazz Epiphany!" I was classically trained on the violin for over 13 years and regularly attend the opera and symphony. But tonight was truly enjoyable. The CD has the same musicians I saw her with and it sounds awesome. Everyone should know how wonderful her music and voice are.
A true fan and recent convert of jazz,
Lorin W. Culver

First solo release by Kim who is well known in the San Francisco Bay Area for her R&B stylings as the lead singer with the Johnny Nocturne Band. Here she shows off her jazzy side on standards and originals with a very sympathetic band assembled for her in Switzerland. Thoroughly enjoyable set of music that leaves you wanting to hear more, more, more.

Kim Nalley has gone back to her roots and made a wonderful CD of Jazz standards with one new song that she wrote herself. My favorite is "Nature Boy," but she puts her stylistic stamp on all of the songs. Her strong voice is right up front and she is backed by a band of great musicians. This is the CD you put on when you want to spend an evening with the one you love. I can listen to it over and over again.

Having enjoyed Kim Nalley's CD with the Johnny Nocturne Band so much, I didn't have to be persuaded to order this solo effort. It is excellent. Sometimes the term "light jazz" refers to music that is certainly "light" but devoid of a real jazz feel. In this case, with Ms. Nalley's expressive voice, and timing, not to mention the backing of a fine trio of musicians, it may not be strident, intrusive music, but it is certainly jazz.

Most of the songs here are well-known standards, but Ms. Nalley still puts her own stamp on numbers like "September in the Rain", "Nature Boy" and "Our Day Will Come". The title song, "Need My Sugar" is an original--the only one on the CD--and here I have a "complimentary criticism". Ms. Nalley--you should be writing more songs--I think it's one of the best tracks, and I would have liked a couple more of your own compositions. The version of "At Last" is good--but Etta James casts a long shadow, and will always "own" this one. I also felt that the Jimmy Reed blues number, "Goin' To New York", was a mistake--a little too smooth--but maybe I have heard Jimmy too much !

The liner notes mention Billie, Sarah, Dinah and Etta--I'm sure that Kim Nalley has listened to Ella too ! We have a major talent here, that I suspect will just keep getting better and better. I guess I really liked this CD because I found it too short--I was sorry when it was over.

Somehow Kim Nalley has not become as well-known as other young jazz divas like Norah Jones and Diana Krall but--with her voice, attractive looks, some more original material, and decent promotion--look out world ! I wish her a long, happy career and--on a selfish note--more CDs please !

What can I say! "Need My Sugar" is one of the best CD's I've heard in a long time. Inspiring, sexy and simply beautiful, Kim Nalley's stunning voice will blow you away. "At Last" will send chills down your spine. Not only have I been captivated by "Need My Sugar", everyone I play it for falls in love as well. A must have for any CD collection.
