ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
‘memorable tunes infused with a quirk that never turns to a mainstream banality’ Lisa Thatcher
“The originality of her song-writing is so distinctive, compelling and surpassing… it’ll give pleasure and meaning that’ll last for hours, days, weeks, months and even years after.” – Brad Syke, Australian Stage
“Incredibly engaging stories and songs… as fresh and innovative as they come. Five stars!” – Critical Jazz
“A consummate cabaret performer and a fascinating songwriter.” –Bill Stephens, Canberra Critics’ Circle
"Weinberg is a rare multifaceted talent with 13 one woman shows, 3 musicals and a film - Goddess in her writers' ouvre"
"Five Stars " John Stand
The Piano Diaries is an incredibly engaging work and part of Weinberg's nine one woman shows. An artistic mosaic of a lifetime of experience set to music. The true measure of a singer is the ability to morph into that of story teller. The true measure of an artist is to take the listener to a place they have never been but with a story they are somehow familiar with. Weinberg is an artist. Having reviewed stellar talent from Australia the previous year, Weinberg easily takes her place as one of the finest talents in Australia and should gain an even wider audience here in the United States. Subtle musical nuances run rampant with this recording giving up a little something new of itself with each subsequent spin. 5 stars. As fresh and innovative as they come, highly entertaining!
~Brent Black Critical Jazz
Joanna Weinberg - "The Piano Diaries" glows with the emotional character of a bright smile. This songwriter/vocalist/actress paints a kaleidoscope of rich imagery in her songs that transcends genres with perfect pitch and flawless intonation. She possesses the rare ability to interpret and personalize her own lyrics through a full range of emotions, imbuing her songs with the experiential conviction of a Joni Mitchell; effortlessly cohering Maria Muldaur's whimsical innocence and the limpid vocal clarity of Judy Collins with an averment that attaches convincing, memorable familiarity to the lyric.
~ Jazz Muzic, CJ Bond –
Weinberg tells a story in song without it being stagy or cabaret, crafting something else entirely. A set that grabs you by the ear right out of the box, Weinberg is quite a find and is must hearing for anyone looking for something meaty and different without being arty for the sake of being arty. Firmly in that sweet spot that bubbles right under blatantly commercial, the blood is flowing and the performances is certainly winning. Hot stuff well worth
checking out.
~Chris Spector, Midwest Record Volume 35/Number 81
