"Jazz has had many
forms and styles. Singer and composer Lola Danza is leading an intriguing
new area of exploration in the music, blending classical and rock music
with improvisation in her dramatic compositions. Floating and full of
meaning, her voice is an intuitive instrument that blends mellifluously
with her impressionistic, visionary and emotional music."-- (All
About JazzSimon Harper)
"Lola Danza-- The adventurous Singer/Composer, whose patiently
flowing voice evokes atmospheres from the ethereal to the ominous”—(Boston
"With a stunning
voice that elongates words and phrases with almost ethereal clarity,
Danza follows her own muse stylistically, preferring the spare and airy
to the busy and hot."
"Lola Danza gives
hope to the future of Jazz."
- The Boston Herald
- Bob Young
"Lola Danza is a part of a new breed of jazz singer writing original
material and experimenting. And she has the chops to pull it off."
- The Boston Phoenix
- John Garelick

So many blessings this year-- we made it in the Top 50 Downloads of
2011-- My album "Vision Quest" ranked 8th place out of 50
next to my heroes Bill Frisell, his album 9th place and Phil Woods who
Time Out NYC mentioned my group as "Billed as purveyors of "Modern
Korean shamanic music," Janya comprises four Korean gals who mix
traditional Sinawi music (very spare, delicate tones) with expressive,
English vocals. Imagine Kate Bush singing with Alice Coltrane, in Korea.
I was also featured as the new star in Jazz Japan (formerly known as
the Swing Journal). Please feel free to visit the article here: http://evolverrecords.com/images/jazzjapan.jpg
