NEWS: Review from late visit to Cheltenhamn Jazz Festival. Jazz Journal – John Watson: “I have no doubts about the potential of one remarkable artist: the Estonian singer, pianist and composer Kadri Voorand. I first heard her at the EFG London Jazz Festival last year and was absolutely bowled over by the engaging quality of her voice, her imaginative arrangements and the wonderfully controlled energy of her delivery. She appeared at Cheltenham with guitarist Marek Taits, bassist Mihkel Malgand and drummer Ahto Abner, who offered suitably subtle support, but it is Kadri’s voice that stays in the memory.” www.jazzjournal.co.uk

 

  • "Kadri Voorand is a first class joyfully rousing entertainer with a great voice, great timing with a group of first class musicians closely tied together and flexibly underpinning her spontaneous asides and excursions. Voorand is a hi-fly as well as earthy type of artist who is able to sing on top level in different contexts (witness her contribution to the recent recording of Estonian composer Tõnu Kõrvits’ album Mirror (ECM New Series). In her performance, “directed” from the piano chair, élan, tempo, spirit and soul went hand in hand. She sang in her native language and when she shifted to wordless singing it by far transcended old school scatting. With her performance she proved to be a unique thoroughbred entertainer on a high musical level who hits people’s body and soul. In that capacity she clearly deserves still more international exposure.”
