ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Linda Peterson is a member of the renowned musical "Peterson Family", first family of jazz in the Twin Cities of Minnneapolis/St. Paul.

Linda has been delighting audiences internationally with her unique piano and vocal stylings for more than 20 years. She has four CDs to her credit, two of which were recorded in Copenhagen, Denmark, one recorded in Buenos Aires Argentina with famed Argentine guitarist, Luis Salinas and this one, "Jazz After Hours" recorded stateside. They have earned her international recognition as a respected jazz vocalist. She has received a stellar review in the Los Angeles Times for her appearance there at the "Jazz Bakery."

Quotes are as follows: "I first heard Linda several years ago. She was a fine singer. How could she not be, having been raised in such a renowned jazz family? This CD shows Linda at her full musical maturity. She has an innate jazz feel, impeccable pitch, excellent choice of material, her own unique sound, and the best musicians to accompany her. Rare are the singers who are consumed by music and who cannot imagine a life outside jazz, no matter what the dues. I believe that Linda Peterson is one of the hell-bent, straight-ahead-no-matter-what singers.

-Chan Parker (widow of Charlie Parker, aka "Bird")

"When Linda Peterson talks about getting together for a jam session, she isn't kidding. The Minneapoliis-based jazz singer can assemble a world-class band just by making a few phone calls to family members, including brother Billy, bassist for the Steve Miller Band, brother Ricky, who plays keyboards with David Sanborn, or little brother, Paul, who is musical director for Donny Osmond. The musical lineage doesn't miss a beat with Linda Peterson. She has matured into a splendid jazz performer. Her voice has an appealingly burry, late-night edge, and her phrasing is rich with blues-tinged melodic alterations. Equally important, she sings with great respect for both music and lyrics. Like Carmen McRae, Peterson is a good enough pianist to supply substantial and fittingly intimate self-accompaniment."

-Don Heckman, Los Angeles Times

One of the countries best Jazz Vocalists - Check This Out!
I Can Mention the All Star cast of musicians on Lindas - Jazz After Hours - Cd. But the main element that holds every thing together is Lindas incredible vocals. Her timing and feel is second to none. From her outrageously cool version of - mockingbird - to her smooth originals - Jazz After Hours, Love So Long Denied, and Make It Happen.
With the thought provoking chord progressions and catchy
melodies. They definitely rate right up there with the jazz standard of today. The first time I heard Ella Fitzgerald sing, i couldnt believe how she brought you into the song. They way she sang, made you feel you were actually there with her. On Jazz After Hours Linda does the same. Her expertise, feeling, and wonderful inmprovising, certainly shine through on this CD. For Jazz Lovers all over the place. THIS IS THE CD TO BUY! - www.markarneson.com
