Album Review

Nothing shines brighter than a rising star and vocalist Sara Gazarek delivers a sensational follow-up to her widely hailed 2005 debut that focused on Great American Songbook standards. On Return to You, her expanded repertoire features an array of new textures and sounds via woodwind, brass, and string accompaniment that reshapes Seamus Blake's "Northern Lights," Josh Nelson's "Just Let Me Be," and Paul McCartney's pop standard "Junk." Gazarek does a fine job on Joni Mitchell's "Carey," giving it a playful mood. By contrast she gives Billy Joel's lovelorn lyrics on "And So It Goes" a complete emotional makeover. The recording also features several new songs written by her pianist Josh Nelson, including the opening track "Let's Try This Again," which he co-wrote with Gazarek. However, she shines brightest as a singer, and on "Northern Lights," her voice is delicate, sensitive, and has a strong resemblance to Norah Jones' folk-jazz style. Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah" commands your attention because of the rarely recorded final chorus that is included here. Overall, Return to You is a complete gift that should endear Gazarek's fans even closer to her easygoing, youthful sound and charisma. [A bonus track version was also released.]

Customer Reviews

Another great album from Ms. Gazarek

It was with great anticipation that I awaited this latest release from the wonderful Sara Gazarek. The wait has been worth it. This album once again showcases Ms. Gazarek's superb phrasing, versatility and emotional understanding of the material she chooses. She is truly making a place for herself in the jazz world.


I had never heard of Sara before today. I heard about her through Parade Magazine and just listening to her voice I knew why they made her their top pick.Her voice is so calming and beautiful I recommend this cd to anyone who loves jazz or folk music.

Gazarek seems to be getting beter and better. Her live album is great and her voice is like that of the late Billie Holliday and the more recent Jane Monheit. She will go far in the Jazz genre...


Born: Seattle, WA

Genre: Jazz

Years Active: '00s

Young and up-and-coming vocalist Sara Gazarek was raised in the Pacific Northwest -- Seattle to be exact -- without a lot of exposure to jazz in her youth. She discovered the joy of jazz vocals in high school and credits her high-school band director with having a huge impact on her development and subsequent future course. Because of her youth, sophistication, and choice of material to sing, Gazarek has the potential to turn a whole new generation on to the simple yet complex beauty of jazz vocals....
