Album Notes
DEBO's premier CD came about after doing a regular duo gig in New York City with Ron Affif and Ben Wolfe. We were all having so much fun she felt it was nothing left to do but record. She ran into Greg Hutchinson in the village one day, who ask what she was up to . When she told him her plans to record, he wanted in on the fun. It's a pretty much unrehearsed, spontaneous, DIY production with some of the best New York musicians, just having fun. Saul Rubin recorded the masters at home and it was mixed at Avatar Studios. That's the story. Hope you enjoy the music.

Deborah Davis is a true original with a sound that is soulful, swinging and versatile. Deborah’s voice translates each song into a very personal statement. She also displays an incredible style, wit, and charm. The CD features familiar standards that are full of creativity and splendidly performed by Deborah. To demonstrate a mixture of talent, charm, and penchant for fun, Deborah includes an oldie by Fats Domino (“I’m Walkin’”) and a tune from our days in grade school entitled, “Row Your Boat”.
Deborah is accompanied by an outstanding trio. The trio featuring Ron Affif (guitar), Ben Wolfe (bass), and Greg Hutchinson (drums) provides the perfect synergy that completes this fine recording.

Great collaboration of Guitar & Vocal
Great CD. Excellent collobation with guitarist Ron Affif.
Ocassionally a little too much vibrato by Deborah Davis but does not detract much from the overall quality of the CD. She is a snger that swings with emotion. I eagerly await her next collaboration with Ron Affif.

Blew me away!
Due to the wonderful songs & Ms. Davis' superb voice, I've listened to this CD over & over again. I've even played it for friends & urged them to buy it. The music is so upbeat; you can't be sad listening to it!!! And listening to Row Your Boat makes you smile-thinking of days gone by.
You won't regret buying this CD!

A Star Is Born
I now have both of Deborah Davis\'s CD\'s and just as I said in my review of her CD \"No Ways Tired\" I beleive she is on of the all-time great jazz vocal talents. Wilder yet is that her voice is totally her own. She doesn\'t sound like anybody I can think of. Although she\'s got the technical command of someone like Sarah Vaughn she doesn\'t use her voice like that and even though she has the sass, sexual appeal and attitude of Dinah Washington she doesn\'t remind too much of Dinah either. She\'s also more seductive and at the same time more peronal than anyone I can think of. She, a winner is the only way I can thinkof to describe her. I think there is great success ahead for her. She\'s out Dallas now and making a go of it in New York and hopefully it will only be a few more months before someone realeases a major label effort of hers. In the meantime thank God for CDBaby. Check out her website.

Jazz soaked in the Blues
Another American secret (i must do something about that) Deborah Davis is another great singer in the tradition of Carmen McCrae and Betty Carter yep she's that good. This album is a definite must have and play and play and play as you won't tire of it. My favourite track is Quiet Nights which she puts her vocal stamp on and makes it her own. I don't know what it is but on some songs she sounds like she's been singing jazz for about 30 years or more (check out the track Easy Living) as she sounds so mature and so bluesy you can smell the cigarette smoke. In fact there's real bluesy late night feel to many of the songs on this album. A great voice that doesn't fail to delight the ear any earlier pessimism about the death of true jazz singing has been sadly overstated, it's alive and well and Deborah Davis along with a small handful of other jazz singers on CD baby are testament to that. If I compare this album to many of the jazzlite-weights who are being heavily promoted on major labels, then Ms Davis's album blows them all away and to use my regular phrase she's the real deal jazz heavyweight not jazzlite. Also I applaud and respect her for taking control and setting up her own label for her album releases. Final word buy this album


Deborah's CD is a great way to get into Jazz!
This CD is really wonderful. Ms Davis has an excellent debut. It's the perfect CD to get someone interested in jazz. Once I listened to it, it became one of the CD's I listen to often.

Oh my God ! BUY THIS CD!
WOW. I had the lucky opportunity to get this CD and it totally blew me away. Great, great jazz, and this lady might very well have one of the best, sultriest and [exciting] voices I have ever heard. I'm amazed she isn't famous -- she should be.
