    This native of Surinam (formerly Dutch Guyana) shows plenty of promise on her second CD for Timeless. Accompanied by an outstanding trio of Cyrus Chestnut, George Mraz and Billy Hart, with added percussion by Martin Verdonk and Lucas Van Merwijk, Jannah's bright lively vocal style sounds very fresh. She has a lot of fun with the uptempo chart of Steve Allen's "This Could Be the Start Of Something Big," while she's also adept at handling a slow ballad like "Detour Ahead" or a campy version of "Angel Eyes" that incorporates the theme from Mission: Impossible. Also of interest is "If The Music's Right" a samba that includes lyrics in Surinamese, Portugese and English, which Jannah carries off beautifully. Highly recommended. ~ Ken Dryden

  • Critic Reviews
    JazzTimes (11/94, p.94) - "...[Jannah] is an adventuresome vocalist. She has fine pipes, an array of fresh songs--and no fear of trying new things with old material....her treatment and rearrangement of standards are the most intriguing part of this project..."
