"Barbara Knight's jazz style beautifully combines power and poise. She's a singer's singer, swinging on 'Perdido,' seductive on 'Like a Lover,' mysterious on her namecheck tune, 'Night and Day,' welcoming on 'Just in Time.' Both queenly and friendly, Knight is particularly comfortable with standards. But she's not afraid to be modern, either. 'Night and Day,' her CD with the Cleveland Jazz Orchestra, effectively demonstrates how well Knight and her favorite backup work together. This lush album is a honey, proving how persuasive mainstream jazz can be. Credit Barbara Knight for making the reminder so resonant." Carlo Wolff, jazz reviewer for the Cleveland Plain Dealer and contributor to Billboard online, Goldmine and the Boston Globe. "There's a rightness about this CD that is hard to define, one that I haven't heard on anything I've ever been on except this. It's just on another level. Wow!" Jack Schantz, musical director of Cleveland Jazz Orchestra "Barbara Knight's 'Night And Day' is a refreshing change of pace. Knight shows us her love of the songs she sings, by actually just singing them. No self indulgent, vocal exercises on this session. Just Barbara's warm, crystal clear voice bringing life to a collection of very hip charts. What a delight!" Dan Polletta, jazz host, WCPN - FM 90.3 "Barbara Knight sings with confidence and affection. Her interpretations of the great standards are straight from the heart of the music.' Tony Mowod, executive producer / jazz host, WDUQ - FM 90.5.
