"Stellar vocal jazz blessed with a dynamic range magnificent talented!"
"Like any good jazz musician Jenny uses her voice as an instrument, improvising and playing with the melodies. She is the kind of singer that gets deep into the songs and makes you feel the lyrics."
"Vocalese rarely gets better than this!"
"Breathing fresh air into well known standards and be-bop masterpieces Davis will surely inspire this and future generations of singers to tap more often into the vast resource of musicality combined with technicality.
"Davis takes the listener on an exploration of vocal heights and emotional depth that few vocalists have the heart, or talent, to traverse. She is a true jazz vocalist." ALL ABOUT VOCALS
"Jenny Davis finds the magic in the music and swings it!"
Davis is a Welcome Addition to the history of jazz vocalists."
ALL ABOUT JAZZ
“The intimacy of a guitar led ensemble creates the transparency that is so beautiful within the jazz genre. Her ability to easily translate from one transition to the next is a true testament to her abilities and musicality as a vocalist and writer. What is most evident immediately is the strength and control Davis has with her instrument.”

Jazz Times Review
Jazz standards in an intimate format of just guitar, bass and clear, rich vocals that is the new album of Jenny Davis, Inside You. Jenny Davis vocals are equally soulful and honest in ballads like “My Romance” or swingin pieces like “On Green Dolphin Street”. Like any good jazz musician Jenny uses her voice as an instrument, improvising and playing with the melodies. She is the kind of singer that gets deep into the songs and makes you feel the lyrics
Jenny has a unique style yet deeply rooted in the jazz and vocalese tradition, evident in her phrasing and improvisations on Charlie Parker’s “Confirmation”, Kaper’s “On Green Dolphin Sreet” and the slow swingin’ of “Softly as in the Morning Sunrise.
Brazilian music, especially the music from composer Tom Jobim has become standards fixed in the repertoire of most jazz singers. Jenny is not the exception with her wonderful interpretation of Jobim’s “No More Blues”. The album also includes an original by Jenny, “Inside You”, with a modern jazz feel and a lovely version of one of my favorites McCartney and Lennon songs, “Blackbird.”CMJ Jazz Chart
