Interview with Veronica Nunn
"Working with Veronica
for almost the last ten years has been a pleasure, both personally
and musically. Aside from the
she always sings perfectly in tune and, emotionally, from a place
inside the lyrics, she possesses that rarest and most prized of
musical gifts, a beautiful voice." Singer
"Veronica Nunn is
one of the brightest new jazz singers to come along in quite a
while. She's original,
and purely swinging." Clive
Davis, New York
"Veronica Nunn has an unmistakable
sound, a rich timbre at once intimate and reserved. Perfect time
and remarkable vocal control
make her ballads and fast tempos equally intriguing. And can she
swing!" Stuart Troup, New York Newsday
"When I give my love to you,'
the sensual, steamy duet performed by Michael Franks with featured
Nunn was the highlight
of the evening. Her voice complimented his as it laced around the
melody, ending with a moving vocalese solo, that had the audience
on their feet in applause." Los Angeles
from Michael Franks review at the Strand in Los Angeles
"It's been a long time since I've heard
a real jazz singer!"
