Liner Notes:

Although 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.

Chris 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.

When 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.
