__________________________________________

"On her first CD, jazz singer Susan Getz has put four of her own compostitions side by side to Cry Me A River, I Need Your Love So Bad, (brother-in-law) Robert Palmer's Honeymoon and two Beatles songs, The Long and Winding Road and Come Together. The first is a piano-accompanied piece, with light percussion in the back. The pianist plays an entirely different melody right up to a 1- minute instrumental piece at the end, whereas the singer sticks close to the original vocals, though in a different phrasing. Come Together has a driving beat, set by the backing band and near the end, the drummer gets his way. As an instrumental this version would hardly be recognized as a Beatles tune, but with her rich diction, Getz is the perfect link between these jazz accompaniments and the Beatles song. She further> proves this versatility on a wonderful version of an early Fleetwood Mac blues hit, I Need Your Love So Bad."

"Frequently new singers follow other great singers in style, not that I disapprove, but it is nice to hear a new voice. Susan Getz is on the right path with a charming sound and a different style coming from her first cd. The concept, to be sure, is hers alone. Susan, let's hear more from you, the silky voice of Susan Getz."

Teo Macero--Spring 2004

"Susan Getz keeps the spirit of West Coast Cool alive on her debut recording, Jazz Boxx. She exhibits her jazz/pop sensibility with Robert Palmer's "Honeymoon" as well as Lennon/McCartney's "Long and Winding Road" and "Come Together." All three selections showcase Getz's warmth and tenderness. Another facet of Getz's artistry is her distinctive interpretation of Great American Songbook standards. Worthy of note are Susan Getz's originals, which truly highlight her potential. Her songs fit hand in glove with her voice and style. "Say Goodbye to Love" is a hauntingly beautiful piece." Susan Getz's intentions, intimacy, lyricism, and passion for the music shine through."

Jeff Hedberg--AllAboutJazz.com

"Aaaah Yes… Jazz vocalist, Susan Getz comes at you right where it counts… Her vocal delivery hits you in the solar plexus area of your musical sensibilities, with taste, charm, enchantment, fascination, attraction, grace, art, aesthetics, & wit. This is a singer with an ability to offer her talent with a delicate & subtle yet equally strong sense of vocal liberation."
