John Proulx - Quotes


"Proulx is front and center, overflowing with fresh zeal and sparkling energy."

              -- Christopher Loudon (Jazz Times, Dec. 2006 issue)

“You can tell immediately that John’s approach to jazz is both new and refreshing; showing great respect for both the melody and the lyric — a rare thing among jazz vocalists. I’ll bet that Chet Baker is looking down on John saying, ‘Yeah, John, go for it’.”

              -- William Claxton (Jazz photographer)

“This introduction to young, talented John Proulx does a great job of showing us what he is about: Strong musicianship, great intonation, mellow swing and a soothing, almost vibrato- less Chet Baker like tone quality. Bravo, John!”

              -- John Clayton
                 (3-time grammy nominated bassist, composer, and conductor)

"It's takes a lot of imagination as well as natural talent to make jazz standards sound fresh and vital. John sings and plays so beautifully and is an outstanding songwriter as well. He's simply a joy to hear"

              -- Michael Feinstein
