It has been my pleasure to produce soul-jazz vocalist Jeff Robinson's first two CDs "Any Shade of Blue", and "Eyewitness".
Jeff Robinson returns to the scene with an hypnotic blend of original
Jazz and Soul recordings, evoking memories of Marvin Gaye, Al
Green and Sam Cooke - all wrapped in a haunting
jazz package. He exploded on the Jazz scene in London,
playing the famous Jazz Cafe, and was a fixture on
London's Jazz FM [Radio]. In fact, Jeff can be found on several Jazz
FM compilations. London-based Echoesnews called Jeff's debut LP "Any
Shade of Blue", "One of the Top 5 CD's
of the year."
Check out these reviews:
"This is an unexpected pleasure. Jeff Robinson is certainly someone's best kept secret. This record [Eyewitness] has depth, emotion, great musicianship and a truly great artist. When someone finally catches on, I think we'll be hearing about him for a long time to come." - Sarah Diamond - bought cd on CDBaby.com
Jeff Robinson left the sunshine of California to make a couple of live appearances at London's Mezzos and Jazz Cafe venues, where I had the pleasure of witnessing a particularly strong debut. Robinson's voice combines the range and vocal control of Jazz with the depth and emotion of Soul in equal measure. His performance oozed class and quality throughout.- Malcolm Prangell - Blues and Soul Magazine, London
"I first saw Jeff at a small club in LA where I heard very big sounds. He is without question one of the top vocalists on the scene today. From straight ahead jazz, blues, all the way to mainstream pop. With singers, you can tell by the truth in the tone that is being projected. In Jeff's case, he believes what he sings. No attitude, just serious talent !!!!! If you go through life one more day without hearing this, you should see a doctor. By the way, one of my best friends snagged my CD so I had to get another one. That's how good this stuff is !!!!! So remember what I have told you today and get your copy now." - Music Fan review on amazon.com
"Unsurprisingly, the best soul-jazz album this year has not been released by a major label. Jeff Robinson's "Any Shade of Blue" is sheer class from start to finish." - Chris Wells - Echoes Magazine, London
