Artist/Band:Diana Panton
Name:If The Moon Turns Green
Cat No.:DP-02
Performed by:Diana Panton (vocal)
Don Thompson (bass,piano)
Reg Schwager (guitar)
Description:Diana Panton may not be a household name in the U.S. yet, but she is being heralded as one of Canada's most promising jazz vocalists. Discovered by legendary Canadian multi-instrumentalist Don Thompson at age 19, she later studied under Norma Winstone, Sheila Jordan and Jay Clayton at the reputed jazz workshop at the Banff Center for the Arts.

Panton's voice is pure, sensitive, and soulful. She has the coquettishness and inventiveness of Blossom Dearie and the relaxed assuredness of Irene Kral. She is not one to dazzle the listener with fast scatting or adding surprising twists to well-known songs. Her art is in inflections and phrasings that are subtle but very effective. Her individuality shines through the intimate connection she unfailingly establishes with the listener.

Following her stunning debut CD Yesterday Perhaps, her much awaited sophomore release If the Moon Turns Green was released in September of 2007. This romantic collection of moon-and-stars themed songs were celebrated by fans and critics alike, and in 2009 was nominated for Jazz Album of the Year at the National Jazz Awards and Best Vocal Jazz Album at the JUNO's.

As it was in the previous album, the spare but tasteful accompanyment by master musicians Schwager and Thompson (who plays piano or bass depending on the tune) is very effective. If the Moon Turns Green is another winner by Diana Panton. Strongly recommended!

Recorded August 2006 at Inception Sound Studios, Toronto, Canada.
