Order from Chris
Chris McNulty will undoubtedly be classified as a jazz vocalist,
she is way beyond that.
She is a true musician, which any great artist whose medium happens to be music,
should be classified as. She is a musician whose voice is her instrument, and
what a great voice she has. She can handle the harmonies and intricacies of the
compositions she chooses so well and flawlessly. Chris McNulty is an exquisite
instrument, along the lines of a Sarah Vaughan or Ella Fitzgerald.
was brought to my attention by my friend Peter Leitch. Peter co-produced
her recording “A Time For Love” on the Amosaya label
on which I performed with Peter, John Hicks and others. I was attracted
first by her voice and secondly by her choice of songs. No run of
the mill material.
Chris asked me to do her liner notes I was honored. But even more
than that, I couldn’t wait to hear what she was doing on her
latest recording. As usual, her choice of songs was great and her
voice has grown even more lush and she is in control no matter where
she takes a melody. If there is any justice, Chris McNulty will be
the next great voice. She already is as far as I am concerned.
