Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Formed in the late 1980s by college mates, the Grammy-winning New York Voices has evolved into a mature and dexterous quartet, whose individual talents are effectively suited for tight, jazzy vocal stylings in the tradition of Manhattan Transfer. Following up their tribute to Paul Simon, the Voices team this outing with a high-flying band of piano and horns, revisiting a popular catalogue of material from the Swing Era and post-WWII big bands. Founder, sax player, and vocalist Darmon Meader provides the contemporized arrangement framework within which the singers share lead duties, showboat on flying scat breaks, and together weave shiny slick harmonies to rival those of their classic counterparts. Standouts include a lovely "Stardust," Ray Charles's "Hallelujah, I Love Her So," and the rousing Louis Prima title cut. --Paige La Grone

4.0 out of 5 stars Sing Sing Sing-ing praises for NYV! August 11, 2001
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
New York Voices' latest offering, Sing Sing Sing, does not disappoint! Fans of the group love their seamless blend and skill in the art of vocalese. This recording offers the latter with verve, with the added bonus of the group's covers of great old standards like the title cut, along with Stardust, Smack Dab in the Middle, I'll Be Seeing You, and others equally as recognizable. As a longtime fan, the only thing I can ever find wrong with this great group is the solos, which sometimes painfully reveal that voices which are powerful and gorgeous in a blend don't neccessarily have the quality or style I want to hear in a soloist. But even that weakness provides a foil for what the group does best -- wonderful harmonies, great musicality, and a tight vocal fit that provides lots of exciting sound. If you are a lover of the vocal arts, this one's for you!

5.0 out of 5 stars New York Voices do it again! June 14, 2001
Format:Audio CD
"Sing Sing Sing" showcases NYV's artistic mastery and is, in this reviewer's humble opinion, a true showcase album for anyone interested in vocal jazz. This album features jazz and big band tunes from the World War II era. The vocals are truly stunning; ensemble moments are perfect blends of harmony and vibrato, scat solos soar over the band effortlessly, and solo passages are accompanied beautifully (by the other singers and the band). The arrangements for the band are tasteful and enjoyable- the instrumentalists prominent and powerful- never overpowering the vocalists. Fans of big band music will be impressed with this backup band and can appreciate the album for both its instrumental perfection as well as the amazing singers. I had a chance to see NYV perform the music on this CD live at a jazz festival in Pennsylvania and was immediately sold on the album more than a year before its release. Particularly stunning is the last track, an a capella arrangement of "I'll Be Seeing You". This track is among the most perfectly executed and beautiful arrangements you are likely to ever hear, regardless of musical style. Thanks to NYV for this disc of pure enjoyment. Everyone else... you need this CD!

5.0 out of 5 stars THEY CAME! THEY SANG! November 4, 2001
Format:Audio CD
On Saturday, November 3, The New York Voices accompanied andunaccompanied by the Waterbury Symphony Orchestra, came to the restored Warner Theater in Torrington, Connecticut. I had never heard vocalists Darmon Meader, Peter Eldridge, Kim Nazarian, and a very pregnant Lauren Kinhan, before, but I sat enthralled as they performed 8 of the 14 titles on their Sing, Sing, Sing CD. They also gave the filled theater audience an example of Antonio Carlos Jobim's Desafinado, and after a standing ovation, they cameback for a final song with the Waterbury Symphony Orchestra. The quartet(plus) most impressed me when they rendered 2 of their songs acappella.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow January 14, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Increasingly, the New York Voices is becoming recognized as the best vocal jazz ensemble in the business, and this album is "Exhibit A" for that proposition. "Don't Be That Way" is my personal favorite: for 4 singers to be together in harmony at breakneck tempo like this is a wonderment to behold. And "Save Your Love For Me" rivals anything that came out of Motown. Besides the fact that the Voices sound tremendous as an ensemble, individually their voices are superb; and nowhere is this more evident than the set-ender "I'll Be Seeing You", an a capella answer to the oft-sung "Berkeley Square" done by the Manhattan Transfer and virtually every other amateur vocal jazz group in the U.S. Special word about Darmon Meador: He may be the best young male jazz singer around right now. Don't be surprised if he breaks out and goes solo someday.

5.0 out of 5 stars Phenominal May 20, 2006
Format:Audio CD
The New York Voices really know how to swing. This CD really shows it. The arrangements are absolutely fabulous. The tight crisp four-part harmony of the singers cut through the dynamite big band brass parts. We hear a very careful attention to nuance in the voices. Every little inflection, slide, and chord has been carefully fine-tuned giving the NY Voices the ultimate ensemble persona. Everything the group does together is completly synchronized. The album has incredible shape, starting off with an explosion of the vocalise of "Sing Sing Sing" and closing with the sultry, velvety chords of the a cappella "I'll Be Seeing You." Other stand out tracks include the trucking shuffle chart "Smack Dab In The Middle," the hillarious "Ain't Nobody Here But Us Chickens," the cool, laid back "Bli Blip," and the Duke Ellington Standard "In A Mellow Tone" in which bass vocalist Peter Eldridge's smooth frothy voice takes the lead and executes an amazing vocalized transcribe solo (on LYRICS, not scat syllables.) Tenor Darmon Meader not only does some incredible vocal improvisation, but also exhibits his chops on the saxophone as well (which are just as good as his vocal solos.) This is truly some of the best vocal jazz around. This album is straight up big band jazz nirvana. Essential for the lover of jazz.

5.0 out of 5 stars New York Voices- Sing! Sing! Sing!!!! June 19, 2001
Format:Audio CD
They're singin' and they're swingin'! They're NEW YORK VOICES and they're back at last! Equally masterful at ultra-tight, harmonized, jazz vocal ensemble singing, as well as daring, individual vocal scat solo flights, vocalists Peter Eldridge, Lauren Kinhan, Darmon Meader (who also blows a mean tenor sax!), and Kim Nazarian have delivered their most swinging outing to date. Backed by a roaring big band, NEW YORK VOICES puts a fresh, new- and decidedly vocal- spin on Swing Era and post-World War II big band classics, with Sing! Sing! Sing!
