By Denise Squier

As a fan of classic big band jazz greats, such as Ella Fitzgerald and Duke Ellington, I honestly must say that I don’t expect a lot from current artists who attempt to perform the classics. But Julie Anne is someone that is a wonderful surprise. This CD Hey, Daddy! is an excellent rendition of great classic jazz tunes -- great vocals, wonderful instrumentation, and strong band arrangements.

When “Daddy” (Track #1) began, true to the classic big band sound -- none of those synthesized orchestras with jazz wanabes -- I was hooked. Then Julie Anne began singing the Duke Ellington classic “I Got it Bad and That Ain’t Good” (one of my favorites) and, she nailed it too. Then Track #3 began; this was her twist on the Ray Charles song “Hallelujah, I Love Her So”, which now became “Hallelujah, I Love Him So”. This track is my favorite on the CD -- nice tempo, nice feel, and nice change from the other more ‘ballad-like’ tunes on the project. Honestly, I couldn’t find anything critical to say about the vocals.

On another note: I must mention the instrumentation separate from the vocals. The vocals were awesome and the instrumentation was as good if not better than the vocals. Jeff Haskell on the piano was solid throughout the entire CD (since I play piano, I always seem to notice that instrument -- good or bad). But, one performance stood out during Track #7: the soulful trumpet. Martin Patfield, I take my hat off to you. Great use of your mute!

This project is reminiscent of the great days of big band jazz. And, if this is any sign about how good this CD is, I will definitely add this project to my iPod.
