Editorial Reviews

Miki Purnell recently made her notable recording debut with Swingin To The Sea. Musically, the CD is full of joy, high musicianship, versatility, infectious enthusiasm, and memorable singing. But when one considers that Miki is a fulltime doctor who practices in the San Diego area, it is particularly remarkable that her singing is so professional, fresh and inventive, never sounding like this is her second career. The music on Swingin To The Sea features arrangements worked out by pianist Tamir Hendelman, flutist Lori Bell, and Miki. learned a lot from him. In addition to Hendelman, Dave MacKay plays piano on his two compositions, Free and Like Me. Also featured on the album are the up-and-coming young guitarist Joey Carano, veteran bassist Bob Magn ( dave played in Tunisia) usson, drummer Kevin Cox, and percussionist Tony Aros. A special bonus is Koto during the introduction of A Night In Tunisia. Swingin To The Sea features Miki Purnell coming up with her own fresh interpretations of such standards as Bluesette, Estate, Maiden Voyage, The Nearness Of You (taken as a duet with Hendelman), The Island, the rarely performed Swinging On A Star and Ä Night In Tunisia. In addition she revives Alec Wilder s Moon & Sand, introduces her originals Sexy Sexy and Sunny Sunday, and sounds wonderful on Dave MacKay s Free and Like Me. Her close interplay with flutist Lori Bell is among the highpoints as are the creative piano solos of Hendelman and MacKay. Every note that Miki sings is not only perfectly in tune (she has perfect pitch) but is full of warmth and beauty.

By Grady Harp HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on May 14, 2013
Format: Audio CD
Miki Purnell or Miki Purnell, MD - she is really one and the same, a successful Physician in Family Practice in San Diego and a classically trained, gifted vocalist and jazz interpreter who now opens that latter aspect of her impressive credentials to the public with the release of this fine new CD. Stop a moment and listen - she is the real thing!

Miki Purnell was born and raised in Hiroshima, Japan. She had classical piano lessons for seven years, starting when she was four. Miki sang as a child for the fun of it, often copying Japanese pop singers. At college, she heard jazz for the first time. `I heard `Blue In Green' by Bill Evans and Miles Davis and it hit me so strong that I could not resist the temptation to sing jazz. I was also deeply impressed by Chet Baker and Ella Fitzgerald. I was inspired not only by their improv but by the stories of their lives.' Miki approaches music with the same warmth with which she approaches medicine. `I believe music is the melody of our soul. It touches the hearts of others and creates therapeutic harmony. It also cleanses our minds and helps us see the beauty of life. As a physician, I always want to promote well-being, so Swingin' to the Sea is filled with very positive feelings and messages as I jump into the world of jazz.'

Miki's voice is light and airbourne and able to bring life to everywrok she sings - and especially to the songs she composed! `This album is who I am and what I am here for, which is to love and support people. I want my audience and my patients to feel comforted when they listen to my work. My goal is to reach out to people where they need music. Music can reach people when words fail. I want to give assurance to others, showing that life is fun and a really worthwhile thing.

Wow! Miki has a new fan. This is a fantastic disc in the American Song Book tradition. This lady conveys a sense of joy to her singing and is absolutely infectious. One of the best discs I have ever heard.
