Album Notes
Jazzology Record's top selling CD of 1997, JAZZ AT HOME is still fresh and toe-tapping as ever. Banjoist/vocalist Cynthia Sayer and her top-notch band, all hailing from her home of New York City, offer a joyful and unforgettable musical experience of 1920s and '30s Jazz.

Cynthia’s hot, swingy style is renowned for breaking through any narrow assumptions about the banjo. Acclaimed as one of the top jazz banjoists worldwide, her vocal, multi-instrumental and arranging talents add even more to the mix. Enjoy!

"Sayer's execution is flawless. She exhibits total command of the banjo, uses the guitar as an alternate, and is the motivational force for all songs. She also is a more than adequate vocalist. Her tone and dynamics work perfectly with the band as she struts her stuff to the lyrics."

"Cynthia Sayer is a talented traditional jazz musician who sings and plays banjo and tenor guitar with equal expertise. Her voice carries warmth and color ... and her rapid-fire style is phenomenal."

"Cynthia Sayer once again demonstrates why she's a blue-ribbon artist. Put simply, Jazz At Home is an album that bears repeated listening, not only to savor Cynthia's skills as both a songstress and instrumentalist but also to examine assorted and sundry solos dished up by a quality cast of musicians."

"Cynthia Sayer's prowess on banjo and guitar and ability as a vocalist have made her a popular entertainer at home and abroad. She has learned the lesson that variety is the spice of jazz as well as of life..... We get some artful textural variations and neat solos."

"Cynthia Sayer, who is certainly one of the best banjo players in the business, has picked a real all-star band for this fine CD.... Every tune is a definite winner."

"Sayer's CD represents her latest, and to date, most personally inspired solo project. … The eclectic blend of material, instrumentation and arrangements suggest an ongoing musical growth, not only as soloist or vocalist, but as arranger as well. As a vocalist, Cynthia eludes a warmth and joy. It certainly provides a wealth of enjoyable listening and inspiration”…. and further solidifies her as a major player in the mainstream of traditional jazz."
-- FIGA MAGAZINE (Fretted Instrument Guild Of America)

"Cynthia Sayer sure knows how to pick her musicians... She also knows how to pick songs ... She also plays a mean banjo and guitar, and knows her way around a vocal."
