"...Tina May remains the most expressive and technically gifted jazz singer on the UK scene."

The Scotsman

"...Tina May is currently among the 'hot property' list of British jazz singers and she's extremely versatile."

Bury Free Press

"...Tina May has a fine, expressive voice, with immaculate pitch, clear diction and no annoying mannerisms."

The Observer


"A remarkably good album by an exceptional singer" - Jazz Journal

On Hep Jazz Records featuring: John Pearce, Ian Laws, Nicol Thomson, Freddie Gavita, Sammy Mayne, Duncan Lamont, Janusz Carmello, The Bowfiddle String Quartet. Arranged by Frank Griffith

"Throughout, May is cushioned by an exceptional group of musicians whose playing is more than merely supportive; it is also thoroughly integrated with the singer's vocal sound, which is warm, rich and mature. The very well taken solo moments include Pearce (eloquent on several tracks), Mayne on My Kinda Love and Gavita and Thomson on I Wish I Knew. Laws has an effective solo on Haunted Heart, and plays Spanish guitar on An Occasional Man. Griffith has several fine solos, including A Sunday Kind Of Love, and very nearly everyone has a moment on S'posin', notably Green, Griffith (on clarinet), Pearce and Carmello; Clifford, who is very good throughout, lends a vocal hand. It is a special delight to hear Lamont's tenor on his own Where Were You In April." - Bruce Crowther

Tina May Sings 'Piaf'

Tina has performed this 'show' throughout Europe and the UK to wide public acclaim.

This is a personal take on the songs made famous by the great chanteuse, sung in a gently 'jazz' way - but in keeping with the essence of 'Piaf'. Audiences have an endless fascination with the music of Piaf and Tina brings her considerable talents to the album.

Personnel: Tina May (vocals), Nikki Iles (piano), Karen Street (accordéon), Julie Wilkington (double bass)

Press quotes:
"That great rarity, a singer who enhances a song." - The Observer
