I'll Take Romance
'A beautiful album so carefully crafted. Julia has clearly learned much from her experience as the 'band singer' with the Glenn Miller Orchestra, and her respect for these songs is so effectively communicated. Pure, straightforward, unadorned jazz-inflected popular singing. The world needs many more singers approaching these songs with the feeling and love expressed here.' Pat Goodhope - 'Sinatra and Company' AM 1290/WJBR Radio - Wilmington, DE 'For the millions of fans around the globe of the world famous Glenn Miller Orchestra, the name will be a familiar one. But while the name and voice are familiar, Julia Rich's debut CD as a 'single' exposes a far greater depth of talent than is displayed on 3 or 4 numbers in front of the band during a concert. I love the big band charts she does with GMO, but it is the intimacy of the small group setting that gives her a chance to caress a ballad in a way that makes the listener feel like you're dancing, late in the evening, lights low, just a few couples on the floor, and she's singing in your ear, just to you.' Tom Phillips - JAZZ NEWS 'Wow!! A real treat. Every word, every song, sung with real feeling. It's been a long time. A long time between real singers. Anita, June, Chris, each one made each song their own. Add Julia to the list. The voice is 'Rich.' The CD is 'Rich' in her choice of songs, backup musicians, and recording personnel. I loved every note. Even the rests were beautiful.' Larry Routt FM 88.7/WOBO Radio - Cincinnati, OH 'She's learned her craft well. A real professional who gets into the lyric ('Two Afternoons in December') and relaxes you with her lovely voice. If I were awarding stars, I would tack 5 on this outing.' L and H Sound Company Music Programming for Radio Stations - Jersey City, NJ 'We hear you!! I'm very happy to see you have a CD out. It's getting play on our station and fits well into our daytime format. Very good tunes. My favorite is the little know 'Two Afternoons in December.'' Jerry Atkins FM 91.5/KTXK Radio - Texarkana, TX.
