Product Notes

"Armed with a smoothly authoritative tenor that suggests Michael Feinstein crossed with Mel Torme', and the eclectically sophisticated taste of Mark Murphy, Jack Donahue is a guy worth keeping an eye on" -Christopher Loudon, Jazz Times "Possessed of a beautiful voice, taste beyond his years, and a wide-ranging intelligence, the handsome New Yorker shows that this sophisticated art form is not just alive and well but thriving." -Andrew Patner, Chicago Sun-Times "Jack Donahue is a compelling singer blessed with a first-rate instrument - and he pays close attention to the lyrics and emotion of every song he sings." -Fred Hersch "Donahue is one of the most entertaining and engaging young singers around. He's got good looks and a beautiful voice, (and) a genuine point of view.' -Waymon Wong, New York Daily News "Handsome and personable, with his musical pores wide open, Mr. Donahue is going places fast." -Rex Reed, New York Observer 'Leave it to an Irishman to make sorrow sing." -Time Out New York ". . . Incantatory arabesques, . . . crystal clear in the narrative of a brief, hallucinatory encounter-Donahue responded to melody and lyrics with the same air of sensual surrender." -Matthew Gurewitsch, Los Angeles Times "Donahue is a classic. Blessed with looks and an undeniably lovely voice. Lots of singers are striving to be the next Mel Torme. This guy's a contender." -Jonathan Takiff, Philadelphia Daily News "Donahue's much-admired tenor voice is as warm as his personality . . . . Attractive shading more often associated with . . . Betty Carter, Dianne Reeves, and Shirley Horn. Chameleon-like, from dark and smoky to cool and husky." -Sharon McDaniel, Palm Beach Post "Donahue has eclectic musical taste . . . an asset when you're blending jazz . . . . Donahue swings gently and with a wry sense of humor. But it's on the ballads . . . that Donahue's supple voice soars." -Chad Jones, The Oakland Tribune "...(Donahue writes) music and lyrics the Gershwins would have been proud to do. The lyrics were on a par with Johnny Mercer's." -All About Jazz.
