Product Description

In As American As Jazz: A Patriotic Celebration of the USA Jillaine gives a jazzy feel to classic favorites like God Bless America and America the Beautiful. Also included are inspirational songs The Impossible Dream and Somewhere Over the Rainbow so characteristic of the American experience.

Review

I have been fortunate enough to hear a few of Jillaine's CD's, including 2011's Scars on My Heart and Jazzy Christmas To You!, both of which I enjoyed tremendously.

I recently was handed a copy of her latest endeavor As American As Jazz: A Patriotic Celebration of the USA and was blown away! It's difficult to take an American standard and put a fresh twist on it, but Jillaine has done this not once but 13 times with a great compilation of American classics!

Jillaine's take on All American Bluegrass Girl shows her great range. Her version of Lee Greenwood's God Bless the USA gives a new sound to an American classic. I especially enjoyed Jillaine's versions of Somewhere Over the Rainbow and Amazing Grace, two of my all-time favorites! I have to give credit to pianist Craig Alder for his amazing work that compliments Jillaine's voice, too!

Jazz fan or not, you will LOVE As American As Jazz! --Chris Farber, Program Director at KLYV-FM in Dubuque, Iowa

Jillaine has a powerful voice and she knows how to use it. She's got mad jazz skills and the soul of a Blues woman, all of which she displays without the vocal gymnastics of lesser talents trying too hard to impress. Her ability to use her voice as an instrument, bending notes and sliding through scales is, in my opinion, nothing short of magnificent....

As American As Jazz is just one of THREE albums Jillaine has recorded and plans to release in the coming months (including a second Christmas album!) and its the one that's probably the hardest sell for me. I mean, I just don't sit around listening to old Kate Smith and George M. Cohen records. I just don't. But Jillaine pulls it off with aplomb. There are some really nice touches throughout--the bluesy piano roll on God Bless America for example--and once again Jillaine delights with some unexpected song selections like Rhonda Vincent's All American Bluegrass Girl. For me, in the end, the highlights are the jazz combo numbers, Wonderful World and, most especially, You'd Be So Nice To Come Home To. But Jillaine's (again) paced the album very well and it s a sweet listen from start to finish. --Martin Johns, Stubbys House of Christmas
