Michael Simmons; Contributor, MOJO Magazine; ASCAP Award Winner For Liner Notes 2015:
“The duo of singer Jeanne Gies and 7-string guitarist Helmut Nieberle is the musical marriage of two soulful, sensitive artists, both in full command of their respective crafts. They share a melodic and rhythmic elasticity that allows this batch of classic standards to breathe -- a gift that was given the name ‘jazz’ over a century ago and of which Jeanne and Helmut are top-shelf contemporary practitioners. Most importantly, this is stuff that comes from the heart.”
Scott Yanow; jazz journalist, historian and author of the books “The Jazz Singers” and “The Great Jazz Guitarists”:
“The pairing of sultry vocalist Jeanne Gies and the great German 7-string guitarist Helmut Nieberle makes for a fun and tasteful set of intimate music. The interplay between Gies' quietly emotional voice (which evokes the deepest meanings found in the lyrics) with the swinging and sensitive Nieberle results in plenty of musical magic. Highlights of the relaxed yet flawless outing include ‘Crazy He Calls Me’, ‘I’ll Be Seeing You’, ‘If’ and ‘Moonglow’.”
