Album Notes
Karen Manion Jazz ~ Press Release 2008
Toronto, Ontario, Canada

Karen Manion Jazz made a major impact on the Toronto scene with her second, independent cd entitled ”Live at the Montreal Bistro" released in 2006.

Here's what the critics had to say...

“And to think that because of some silly heart condition of mine I’ve recently acquired, I might have missed reviewing the towering talents of our northern neighbor - Canada’s own jazz chanteuse Karen Manion. A true master of our beloved American Songbook, Karen brings individuality to the pop-jazz vocal style, polishing her phrasing to perfection, while at the same time delivering a vocal knockout punch to us her listeners! Karen & her fine quintet are worth searching out for their challenging song choices, ingenious musical interplay, and last, the highest standard of performance."
George W. Carroll, The Musicians' Ombudsman www.jazzpromo.com

"The group kicks and jazz singer Karen delivers her vocalise with a panache that is subtle, creative, defined, rich, imaginative & crafty. All blended nicely within a luxuriant palette of musical taste. Great stuff Karen Manion Jazz!”.
George W. Carroll, The Musicians' Ombudsman www.jazzpromo.com

“This Toronto jazz singer has just released her 9 track debut CD entitled, "Yours in Song" - all beautifully performed by Karen. Atlantic Seabreeze gives this fine CD a 5+ rating out of 5 stars! Karen's velvet voice will certainly give jazz music lovers something new in their collection and after hearing her music, they will want to attend one of her extraordinary concerts.”
John Gavin, Promoter, Atlantic Seabreeze www.AtlanticSeabreeze.com

”Manion is both innocent and sexy, cool and sultry. A very promising debut and it'll be interesting to see where Karen goes from here."
Martin Levin, Canada's National Newspaper for Professional Women www.womanspost.ca

She’s performed live on Toronto televison stations including CityTV, with a live radio broadcast on CFRB. Press coverage includes a November 2006 article in the South China Morning Post, and August 2006 cover story in Toronto's Women's Post newspaper, the cover story in the January 2006 Niagara Life Magazine, a feature article in St. Lawrence & Downtown Toronto Community Bulletin, and appearances in Toronto Life Magazine, Toronto Star, and Toronto 24 Hours publications.

Since August 2006, Karen has been enjoying performing the 5 star international hotel circuit in South East Asia!

When in Toronto, you can catch Karen and her roster of city’s finest musicians at premiere jazz clubs, corporate and private functions, special events, music festivals and charity galas.

Her colourful delivery and light-hearted banter makes for a lively show! Her unique approach to jazz standards allows her to solo with single accompaniment or swing with a full jazz ensemble. Her goal is to touch the audience’s heart, transporting them back to a more leisurely, elegant and charming place in time.

Shawn Williams

Karen's Second Time Around
Karen Manion is one of the fabulous female jazz singers ever today, I love her voice sounds sweet like Anita O'Day meets Billie Holliday.

Peter Ancrack

It's a gorgeous, up close and breathy live recording with a more organic vitality than her sparkling studio debut. Karen is now a serious contender but thankfully has not lost any her unpretentious charm and whimsy.
