Lyn Stanley has been awarded Female Jazz Vocalist of The Year 2018
from one of the most visible public radio stations in the USA, KKJz-Los
Angeles who have the highest Nielsen ratings for jazz radio audiences in the
"Even the sound, as absolutely stunning as it was on the first two albums, is
up by a considerable margin--something I didn't think was possible. The stage is
wide and deep; the instruments remarkably transparent and three-dimensionally
solid." - Michael Fremer, Analog Planet, 9/11 Music, 11/11 Sound!!
"In a little over three years Stanley has definitely made her presence felt in audiophile and jazz vocal circles... Her cover of Led Zeppelin’s “Whole Lotta Love,” she explained, was just a loose run-through that, when played back, made fine-tuning seem superfluous. Her talk was so illuminating that I’ve returned to Interludes with a fresh appreciation." - Jeff Wilson, The Absolute Sound
"Lyn Stanley's recent Interludes is her most adventurous and exciting recording
yet. ... the use of guests and the inventive arrangements of Cunliffe, Chiodini,
Tamil Hendelman, Steve Rawlins and Ms. Stanley herself keep the music full of
subtle surprises and variety." — Scott Yanow
"Once again Lyn Stanley makes it evident that when it comes to sultry jazz singing she is a force to be reckoned with... Expectations for her newest release were high and Interludes meets those expectations in spades." - Jack Goodstein, Blog Critics
The unique sultry jazz vocalist from the Los Angeles area turns up the wattage
on Interludes, starting with the opening selection "How Long Has This Been Going
On" a capella. "Just One Of Those Things" employs a creative Bill Cunliffe
arrangement — Stanley is heard during one chorus having brief duets with bassist
Chuck Berghofer, guitarist John Chiodini and pianist/arranger Bill Cunliffe
before the full group joins in. Other tuneful highlights include "Black Velvet,"
"More Than You Know," and "Boulevard of Broken Dreams."
The lowdown and rockish "Whole Lotta Love" and the always eerie "Last Tango In
Paris" find Stanley putting timeless feeling into more contemporary songs. Great
guest artists such as Hendrick Meurkens on harmonica appear on "Don't Explain,"
and Stanley begets a fine swing on "Nice 'n' Easy" and a sweet and lush
interpretation on Duke Ellington's "In A Sentimental Mood." Her interlude
concludes with a heartfelt duet with guitarist Chiodini on "I'm A Fool To Want
You," that's full of longing and desire.
A former USA amateur ballroom dance Pro/Am champion, Lyn Stanley's unique voice
has been described as "beautiful," "Rich in low tones," with "phrasing and
storytelling that makes her music very personal." Her dancing background adds a
feel few artists can deliver. LA Jazz radio personality, Bubba Jackson,
describes her as "the real deal - she has brought the songstress back to jazz!"
She was discovered by world-class jazz legend, pianist Paul Smith best known as
Ella Fitzgerald's accompanist/conductor. Stanley has become known for her lush
low notes, beautiful intonation, rich interpretations, and phrasing.
Her flawless intonation and sumptuous warmth combine with a full bodied
resonance throughout her extensive range. Her lyrics - precisely enunciated,
perfectly phrased and vividly rhythmic - tell her stories not only through the
words, but in the emotional content with which she sings them, and with a grace
and sensuality that coats every syllable she sings with a fluidity that is
The recording venues again included Hollywood's legendary Capitol Recording
Studios (Studio A — musician tracking and some vocals, Studio B — percussion and
some vocals) as well as Big City Recording Studio and LAFx. The vocalist

King Cole and Frank Sinatra. The album was mixed from 24-track, 2-inch ATR tape
by Al Schmitt (except for track No. 14). All songs were mastered from half-inch
analog tape by Bernie Grundman.
