“Jan Daley is a truly talented musician, singer, and lyricist. “Her marvelous voice is selectively controlled and her intonation is, to the fussy ones like me, immaculate. She also projects warm and clear lyrical interpretations, delivering real meanings of every song she sings. The guys in the band play better when Jan is on. They know she knows! I’m delighted to be included in the album with two of my better songs, (I told you she has good taste). And maybe, just maybe, I helped her find herself as a fine songwriter. Some of her best are on the C.D”

“This CD is music as we remember it–melodic and engaging. Jan Daley’s voice has a clarity and purity that is unusual in music today. Her beautiful arrangement of “Skylark” showcases the richness and range of her voice. The music she writes reveals a woman who is comfortable enough in the complexity of her personality and experience to reveal her many moods. She is in turn wistful, melancholy, reflective and playful. Her artistry draws you into each song and invites you to experience your own special moments once again. sometimes, as in “Dreamer”, her voice is like a caress that holds you softly in the memories the song evokes. The lively tempo of “Come on Daddy” makes you want to tap your toes and dance along. The haunting “I Love You Tonight” is like a gentle loving lullaby.

The songs on the CD will wear well over time because they are evocative. Through her mastery of voice, mood and timing Jan gives us music that resonates with our own experiences and unites us in our common humanity–and that is what art is about”
-Wiliam Zaun

“This album takes you into “new old” days of great torch singers. The music is intimate, the songs are great and Jan’s voice lets you roam around in your imagination with thoughts of romance, intimacy, love and a bit of lust! Take time to appreciate this album as you would a fine red wine – you have to let it breathe”
