An astounding, expressive voice author: Lynn Randall
This CD is awesome-like Denise King herself! Wow-what a first class singer. A true professional, with all the poise and vocal skills any singer could only wish for. What a great sound she has! No Jazz collection would be complete without her CDs. If you ever get the chance to see her in person-grab it. She is what great Jazz singing and performance is all about.
Denise King Is The VOICE!! author: Sandra Kaye All I had to hear was the first line of the first song and I was sold. Denise King should be on the TOP of billboard. We need to make some noise!! This CD is also grammy ready. Where are these people when we need them. Sandra Kaye
Naturally talented and she can "yodel". author: AMIR My favorite song is the "Nearness of You". When i heard the "yodel", I'm like I will fly to Philly again to hear Denise King. I hear the spirit of Carmen. You are truly blessed with a "natural". peace AMIR
author: VALRAY PRODUCTIONS AS A VOCALIST, I FIND MYSELF QUITE CRITICAL AT TIMES, HOWEVER, I HAVE PLAYED DENISE KING'S CD UNTIL I HAD TO PURCHASE A SECOND COPY. I COOK, CLEAN, MAKE LOVE AND MEDITATE ON HER CD. SHE IS ONE OF THE GREATEST. SHE SHOULD BE RECOGNIZED WITH THE LIKES OF SARAH, ELLA, NANCY AND MANY MORE
I heard the Nearness of You on the radio & didn't recognize the artist. I was excited to learn that she was a talent from Philly! She has a fantastic voice. I love every song on the CD. Can't wait to see her in person!
what a voice!
i bought this cd because i collect versions of the song "fever". i didn't regret it. in the contrary: each song on this record is a classic. and i'm sure peggy lee would have approved denise's fever!
Awesome...Awesome...Awesome! author: Denise Clark The CD is an awesome CD every song on it brings back memories of the past...I played it over and over and over...until I could sing like Denise King or learned all of the words...I went to the CD release and got a live version of most of the songs...Denise is an excellent singer and the CD is excellent too...
Great voice and phenomenal use of bass author: Jesse Garber The bass lines in Fever are phenomenal. Denise King's voice ia a multi-octave instrument that blends jazz, pop, and R&B into an enjoyable listening experience. I am amazed as a resident of Philadelphia that I only recently discovered her while listening to the local jazz radio station WRTI. Can't wait to see her live.
Brilliant author: Todd Forman Brilliant CD! The ballads envelop you in satin then wrap you in velvet for good measure!
Denise is a sentimental traditionalist in every way. She goes out of her way to author: Jazz Review/ Jazz Loft Richard Bourcier That little gal from Philadelphia has done it again. Denise King has followed up her 1998 "Simply Mellow" album with the brand new CD titled "Fever." We loved her then and we still love her. Denise is a sentimental traditionalist in every way. She goes out of her way to preserve the classy side of jazz singing. In the spirit of such predecessors as Sarah, Nancy Wilson and Carmen McRae, King swings gently and keeps it simple. The "vignettes" with pianist, Aaron Graves are a highlight of the album. On her earlier CD, Denise featured a set of guitar vignettes with David Cullen. The duo tracks work very well for Ms. King. It's purely a coincidence that I should review "Fever" after hearing that Peggy Lee passed away this morning. Peggy would have loved Denise's version of the song that will forever be her signature. Among my favorites are the title tune, Jim, In a Sentimental Mood and Horace Silver's beautiful Song For My Father. The inclusion of the rarely recorded Violets For Your Furs earns a lot of praise. It's not an easy song for any singer. Denise winds up the session with a swinging rendition of Green Dolphin Street. Top marks!
Denise King is an expressive, big-voiced singer who combines jazz with elements author: All Music Guide, Alex Henderson Influenced by Nancy Wilson, Marlena Shaw and Sarah Vaughan, Denise King is an expressive, big-voiced singer who combines jazz with elements of R&B, blues and gospel.Though she's no stranger to standards, one of King's strong points has been her ability to provide jazz interpretations of rock and soul hits -- in fact, she has turned everything from Santana's "Evil Ways" to Ruby & the Romantics' "Our Day Will Come" into swinging acoustic jazz. King started recording in the 1990s, offering Live In Japan: I Remember You in 1993, Now Ain't That Love in 1996 and Simply Mellow in 1997. ~ Alex Henderson, All Music Guide
King has velvet lined vocal chords and a warm sultry persona. The heat rises whe author: Karl Stark, The Philadelphia Inquirer King seems to have velvet-lined vocal chords and a warm, sultry persona. The heat rises when she sings the title cut. Her "Nearness of You" measures up to the song's greatness. She even yodels a bit, a la Leon Thomas, on Horace Silver's "Song for My Father." She finds colors that others haven't in a slow unrolling of "Autumn Leaves," and her duets with pianist Aaron Graves, including "When I Fall in Love," can be heard to great advantage before a working fireplace. King is a torch singer with a strobe light. -K.S
