Product Description

Product Description

Eleven joyfully jazzy tracks mostly composed &/or arranged by the Molly Johnson Quartet. This incredibly smooth release also includes very cool interpretations of 'Summertime', 'Ooh Child/Redemption Song' & Marc Jordan's 'I Must Have Left My Heart'.

"Johnson's warm, liquid voice lovingly embraces each song." - The Toronto Sun

The album smoulders from start to finish, particularly on standout tracks… Johnson's voice is by turns electrifying and heartbreaking." - The Leader Post

"Her distinctive voice keeps you going back for more." - Winnipeg Free Press

Amazon.ca

What was she thinking? Former Alta Moda and Infidels singer Molly Johnson opens her second solo album with "Summertime," the Gershwin standard covered so much it's practically a cliché. Johnson's version adds little to the canon except a cumbersome hip-hop beat. Moreover, it gives almost no indication of the pleasures to come--including the unobtrusive but complementary instrumentals that accompany the Torontonian's fine, smoky voice on subtly catchy tunes. Far better are the playful nightclub vibe on Marc Jordan's "I Must Have Left My Heart," the sweet melody of "He's Got My Heart" (written by Johnson's pianist Andrew Craig), the jumpy swing of "Red Cardinal," and the hazy, lazy mood of "Sleep in Late." Add an ambitious duet with Craig that combines the 1970 Five Stairsteps soul hit "Ooh Child" with Bob Marley's "Redemption Song" to end the disc, and "Summertime" seems even more like the result of sunstroke. --Shawn Conner

I've been listening to Molly Johnson for 2 years now, and have just returned from Ontario Canada from her dynamic performance! I was very concerned about the future of female jazz vocalists, with as of late stylized elevator music supported by much hype being passed off as jazz; it has in my opinion no fervor. Miss Molly on the other hand has style, talent, and damn it you can feel her love and respect of the music known as jazz in her soul! The sound of her smoky, sexy voice makes me want to sip vermouth, make love and/or cry. Most times however I'm satisfied with just listening at home or driving to work, and wondering what she'll come up with next. Canada's Best Kept Secret, but not for long-not if I have my way! I imagine Billy, Miss Ella, Sarah, Carmen and Betty must be smiling down on Molly from Heaven. In addition the band is absolutely phenomenal!! I have both CD's: "Molly" and "Another Day" and love them both.

It's a pattern isn't it?...these Canadian artists showing us their purity and poetry--pointing out to US the way? Well all I can say is 'get ready to stand in line' because in this voice I think I hear the future of jazz vocalism. Not to deminish the success of Norah Jones (who I enjoy) but 'please'. If it weren't enough that you couldn't not love someone who'd record "Miss Celie's Blues (Sister) in the first place, then ponder her rendition of "Summertime" for all its originality or, better even, brace yourself for "Melody"--one of those moments where singer and songwriter meet with an intimacy that soars with inspiration. A CD that restores your faith that artistry is still out there rich and fertile and speaking to us--if we'll only listen.

I'd never heard of Molly Johnson before, until I was in Vancouver in August 2002, and happened to catch her latest release - Another Day. The lady can croon! The whole album is brilliant, the band is wonderful and its a great cd to put on when you want the feel of a jazz club in your living room. I've gotten so tired of pop music with too much happening in a song. This formula is basic with talented musicians and a great singer, putting it out there for your enjoyment. Sit back, close your eyes, relax and let the music envelop you.

On "Another Day" Molly Johnson does what Norah Jones may someday be able to do and what Diana Krall can only wish for. Johnson gets her whole soul into each number so convincingly that even standards seem as though she wrote them herself. Like a great actress, Johnson not only sings the tunes, she performs them in the truest sense of that word.
She has a beautiful, fully mature voice, tremendous timing and phrasing, and her band... well...
Contemporary vocal jazz does not get better than this.

My wife and I listened to the album last night while talking and having drinks and we found the music to be wonderful for a quiet evening at home. We knew we enjoyed Molly's voice but we also enjoyed the music as well. I certainly recommend the album to anyone who is looking for an upbeat and enjoyable listen for a quietly fun evening.

i came upon this CD in the listening station at a large music store. having never even heard of molly johnson before i decided to give it a listen, and from the intro to track one, the title song 'another day,' i was hooked. there's such an easy groove found here - between blues and jazz and pop even - that just sounds irresistable.
imagine my surprise when i heard molly tackle 'miss celie's blues (sister)' - a song i haven't heard since last i saw 'the color purple' which must have been about a decade ago. and her completely refreshing take on gershwin's summertime made a smile break out on my face when i realised what song it was.
to all those music lovers who've been listening to her for years, you're lucky. to those not fortunate enough to have already discovered her, buy it ASAP. she's jazzy enough, soulful enough, and completely worth it.
