Karen Manion Jazz is making a major impact on the Toronto scene by releasing her second, independent cd entitled ”Live at the Montreal Bistro”. She has also just been awarded a contract to play in the world’s finest hotel in Hong Kong from September til year’s end. Here are some reviews of her second cd…

“And to think that because of some silly heart condition of mine I’ve recently acquired, I might have missed reviewing the towering talents of our northern neighbor - Canada’s own jazz chanteuse Karen Manion. A true master of our beloved American Songbook, Karen brings individuality to the pop-jazz vocal style, polishing her phrasing to perfection, while at the same time delivering a vocal knockout punch to us her listeners! Karen & her fine quintet are worth searching out for their challenging song choices, ingenious musical interplay, and last, the highest standard of performance."
George W. Carroll, The Musicians'' Ombudsman https://www.tradebit.com

"The group kicks and jazz singer Karen delivers her vocalise with a panache that is subtle, creative, defined, rich, imaginative & crafty. All blended nicely within a luxuriant palette of musical taste. Great stuff Karen Manion Jazz!”.
George W. Carroll, The Musicians'' Ombudsman https://www.tradebit.com

“This Toronto jazz singer has just released her 9 track debut CD entitled, "Yours in Song" - all beautifully performed by Karen. Atlantic Seabreeze gives this fine CD a 5+ rating out of 5 stars! Karen''s velvet voice will certainly give jazz music lovers something new in their collection and after hearing her music, they will want to attend one of her extraordinary concerts.”
John Gavin, Promoter, Atlantic Seabreeze https://www.tradebit.com

”Manion is both innocent and sexy, cool and sultry. A very promising debut and it''ll be interesting to see where Karen goes from here."
Martin Levin, Canada''s National Newspaper for Professional Women https://www.tradebit.com

She’s performed live on Toronto televison stations including CityTV, with a live radio broadcast on CFRB. Press coverage includes the cover story of January’s Niagara Life Magazine, a feature article in St. Lawrence & Downtown Toronto Community Bulletin, and appearances in Toronto Life Magazine, Toronto Star, and Toronto 24 Hours publications. Performance highlights include the Fallsview Niagara Casino and Quebec’s Mont Tremblant-Intrawest Resort.

Karen will be in Hong Kong from September until the year’s end. She has been awarded a performing contract in one of the world’s best hotels. When in Toronto, you can catch Karen and her roster of city’s finest musicians at premiere jazz clubs, corporate and private functions, special events, music festivals and charity galas.

Her colourful delivery and light-hearted banter makes for a lively show! Her unique approach to jazz standards allows her to solo with single accompaniment or swing with a full jazz ensemble.
