The world seems full of of would-be jazz singers hoping to walk in the footsteps of Billie Holiday, Peggy Lee, Sarah Vaughan, Ella Fitzgerald and so on. They fail because, at best, they are no more than imitations, at worst, they lack the vocal quality and musicality to sing jazz at all! Cheryl Fisher is NOT ONE OF THESE! She is a genuine, original talent. Whatever the choice of material, Cheryl emerges as a jazz singer of striking originality. She will play with a melody in a way that makes you wonder why nobody has ever phrased it in that manner before....you immediately realize you're in the presence of a musician for whom singing jazz is as natural as breathing. On this collection, she is backed by a group of bebop/mainstream musicians who know the art of accompanying as well as how to blow. Secure in her musicianship, she has allowed them ample space to show what they can do freed from the discipline of backing duties. Indeed, this is a disc satisfying in all departments, vocal and instrumental. Bridges & Summer Scenes, are two originals offerred on the disc. The former being almost like a film theme - one of those late-night-in-the-city films developing a slowish, punchy swing, whilst Summer Scenes is very modern in concept, again beginning simply over a latin beat but becoming increasingly complex harmonically as it develops. Earl Okin,"Jazz On Cd" London, England Fisher's work has garnered rave reviews nationally and internationally. Fisher has been honored twice at the Festival International de Jazz de Montreal where she was billed as "Canada's New Diva of Jazz" and as being "already recognized as on of the greatest female singers in the history of Canadian jazz". CBC profiled Fisher's rise on the national scene with several features on her career and has recorded her performances for both regional and national television and radio. Canadian broadcasting icon Vicki Gabereau welcomed her as a guest on her nationally broadcast television show introducing Cheryl as "...one of the best jazz singers we've ever produced in this country." She has also been profiled on a national television special " The Discovery Project" as one of Canada's brightest rising stars and was nominated by ARIA as Best New Jazz Recording Artist.
