on barbara fasano ...
“Fasano is a gorgeous, soulful singer who has an actor's intensity in whatever she sings.”
“A chanteuse at once cool and sultry ...
“With [“Written In The Stars”] Barbara Fasano proves that she is not just a great Italian crooner, an heir to Sinatra for our time, but a jazz singer of the first rank.”
“Taste, built-in dramatic chops, the ability to manipulate time, and, above all, respect for lyrics ... ”
“Spellbinding ... a beauty to hear and behold ..."
“Ms. Fasano is a charismatic stylist who effectively channels the living spirits of the great über-divas Lena Horne and Barbra Streisand.”
“The good news today is that we now have another Arlen collection that can be played alongside Harold’s ... praise the band, and the singer, and thank them for a bluesy, jazzy, swinging album of Arlen.”
“Barbara Fasano is the real deal! A natural romantic interpreter ...”
“Hauntingly intense and effortlessly real. Fasano will get inside your heart and your head.”
“It doesn’t get much better than this. Sassy, smoky and soulful … a killer combo of vocal and acting talent... impressionistic, thoughtful and dramatic, Barbara Fasano is a one- woman marquee in lights ... the listener is in her grasp ... imagination, style, musicianship and drama ...”
“Luscious and lovely ... sinuous and slinky ... exquisitely sung ...”
“The best of the best ... enormous talent ... captivating voice ...”
“Fasano’s singing better now - with more thought, more richness - than she ever has ... warm, beautifully paced ...”
“Delightful ... Her interpretation of the lyrics is also of a very high standard ... This is a singer to watch.”
“La Fasano is an excellent interpreter, as much at ease with jazz as with music having cabaret roots ... the perfect interpretation of Arlen’s songs with a sophisticated voice ...”
“Her voice is unforced and clear, her enunciation crisply distinct, her vibrato relaxed and her intonation sure. She is expressive without breaking the spell in that over-the-top manner all too common these days.”
"Soigné, sultry and sexy ... She has only to walk on stage to knock your eyes out. The singing knocks your ears off ...”
"Gorgeous ... A combination of beautiful singing, splendid arrangements, and richly textured interpretations."
"Heavenly … Captivating … A breath-taking ability to proclaim the essence of each number. In the world of cabaret, Barbara Fasano provides a model of what's addicting about the genre."
