Album Notes
Aahhh ...so sensual...slipping into your heart. The thought of you "pushing my buttons" and my voice spiraling out at you, wrapping and caressing itself around a complete stranger makes me smile. Or do we know each other? How small this world can be, and how vast the longing to stretch beyond the horizon. This is my work. I share it with you.


»The voice of Kara Johnstad is really outstanding. It doesn´t matter whether she soars into the beyond or whispers like an angel. One understands fully that she must have trained a long time and with success.« Jazzdimensions

»If you want to soar with the angels, if you want to cry in the clouds, listen to this woman SING!!! Kara's voice touches me like no other singer's voice ever has. So pure, pulsing with a joyful sadness. She embodies the living qualities of heaven and earth - a celestial song sung here on earth. Kara Johnstad dares to be vulnerable when she sings in a way that so few in this world do. And, in so doing, she becomes incredibly strong, inviting us to know ourselves deeply. A singer with heart, head, and guts - a true STAR.«

»Kara Johnstad places each tone with such feeling... Blue note at its best!« Stern, Hamburg

»Kara Johnstad has left the stylistic boundaries behind her in every genre, and instead carried through what suits her the best: Her ideas!« zitty, Berlin

»Holy Moly! ! What a voice...« Bild Germany´s most popular daily newspaper

»... the American singer offers everything from jazz ballads to Brazilian samba rhythms, all that a jazz lover´s heart desires. Beautiful voice, beautiful woman, beautiful music..« TIP, Berlin

»Pages Of Sand - Finally another CD from Berlin with an international format. These songs, recorded at the A-trane Studio with the powerfully stong and dynamic voice of Kara and her established musicians, are best listened to while riding around in a big car through nocturnal New York or even Berlin and reminiscing old Frank Sinatra films!« Concert Guide, Berlin

D.J. Flint

superb singer, great songs, totally awesome
Pages of Sand is a superb collection of songs by Kara Johnstad, a singer who should be an international star. These songs showcase sadness, joy, sensuousness and love. Her voice is a unique and superb instrument that reaches into the very souls of her listeners carrying us along with her wherever she desires. She is truly unforgettable.

Redefining Jazz
Kara Johnstad an American singer – songwriter, living in Berlin and who has stunned audiences on six continents with her scintillating performances, has gifted us with another spectacular album, Pages of Sand, which redefines Jazz and broadens the genre to include Indian percussion and Sufi poetry. Ms. Johnstad’s emotive phrasing pulls the listener in and her vocals envelope the listener in captivating performances on all 11 tracks. Wow, I am glad I discovered her music and let’s hope more radio stations start playing the music of Kara Johnstad, because we need more fresh and creative albums like this one. She should appeal to a number of radio station formats, as her music is not pure Jazz. I would think AC, Alternative and AAA program and music directors would also get excited about these song.

Simply Perfect Passion, Sexiness and Grace!
In Kara Johnstad's CD, Pages of Sand, her voice is heavenly, soulful, passionate and very sensuous! It is rare to find all those qualities in one voice, but Kara has just that!! She sings from her heart and gives every song an earthiness and truth that only a person who has lived the experiences can share. You can FEEL her sensuousness with her crafting of every phrase and every nuance. With Pages of Sand, Kara creates art and it feels like she is completely nude while creating that art. She is willing to expose her very essence with the listener. Kara creates soul, and her soul is HOT!
