WHAT THE CRITICS ARE SAYING:
"Melody Diachun is one of the world''s finest young jazz composers and vocalists." - BRAVO!TV
" ... There seems to be a tight, near-telepathic rapport here. Melody Diachun''s voice is light and understated with a bluesy accent ... romantic moods that can be sexy or sentimental as the song requires ..." - CADENCE MAGAZINE
"A warm, accomplished voice ... formidable range ... sparkling guitar ... standout (piano) work ... original material that catches the ear..." -THE VANCOUVER SUN
"Simply wonderful... sultry vocals ... she uses language well, capturing images and feelings, reaching out to her listeners ..." -THE NANIMO DAILY NEWS
"Terrific ... pure voice and unembroidered style..." -THE VANCOUVER SUN
"LULLABY of the LEAVES is a soothing, twilight companion ... includes originals and such gems as You and the Night and the Music." -THE MONTREAL GAZETTE
"It''s hard to keep up with all the jazz vocalists emerging in these singer-saturated days, but Canadian singer Melody Diachun is worth keeping up with ... She sings attractively and is patient with the slowest ballad tempos ... Throughout, she resists the annoying temptation to be self-consciously jazzy." -THE OTTAWA CITIZEN
"Melody Diachun is the quintessential vocalist, reminiscent of those great ''girl singers'' of the past - Ella, Peggy, Sarah, Helen and the rest. MELODY''S voice and feel for the music are a joy to hear as she delivers her repertoire with flare, elan, and her own unique style." -Dal Richards, Radio host, "Dal''s Place", 600AM
"You have perfect phrasing! It''s scary." -Kenny Werner, Jazz Pianist, Educator & Author
Conceived as a collaboration, the album explores and reveals classic and original songs from three points of view. Melody''s warm voice and unaffected, sensitive approach wed perfectly with Murphy''s expansive manipulation of harmony and time. Combined with "sparkling guitar" (THE VANCOUVER SUN) and lyrical and supportive bass playing from Stephenson, the three take turns shining a light on the very soul of each composition.
