12.01.09D. Oscar Groomes Review...

O's Notes: Sarah has a youthful stage-like quality and boatloads of enthusiasm. That abundance of happiness spills over to her surroundings and music. She sings a dozen songs, a good mix of originals and covers that match her personality. Corman has a polarized style that you will either love or hate. She displays a very grateful and thankful spirit to all involved in this collaboration, a dream come true.

11.19.09Thank you Nicole "Swingin" Sweeney!

"Hi Sarah-greetings from WCLK-FM in Atlanta 'The Jazz of the City!'
My name is Nicole Sweeney host of the Mid-Day jazz swing and I have to tell you, I enjoy "Happy Little Tune" to the max! I am always looking forward to a well rounded vocal CD for my show and yours was just that!!
Take care and I look forward to more of your work!

Nicole 'Swingin' Sweeney."

11.19.09All About Jazz- New York

Thank you to Suzanne Lorge for mentioning me in the November "VOXNEWS" section of "All About Jazz-New York"!
Pg. 11
"Up-andcomers: Sarah Corman, an inventive singer with a fresh voice and bouncy persona, presents 'Happy Little Tune' (s/r), a collection of standards, unconventional pop numbers and originals."

11.06.09Cashbox Magazine Review

"On Happy Little Tune, Sarah Corman sings original compositions (four), standards or popular songs (seven), and a jazz piece. As evidenced here, she writes attractive melodies, including the perky title tune. Not all of her creations are upbeat, however, and some of the lyrics convey a sense of darkness, as on those to “Personal Space" (words written with Elihu Rubin) and “Little Woman." Because her “Dionysus" has no lyrics, Corman performs it as a wordless vocal with some scatting."
"...In addition to singing and composing, Corman is the major arranger of the music on this release.

Lennon and McCartney’s “Honey Pie" and Ellington and Strayhorn’s “Such Sweet Thurder" are the jazziest selections on this CD. On the former,"... Corman sings the sentiments of a person too lazy to go to his lover", "trombonist Alan Ferber and bassist Yoshi Waki solo."
"The title of the latter selection comes from Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, though the composers intended the piece to reflect some of the title character’s words to Desdemona in Othello. In arranging this new version, Corman and Waki retain the rambunctiousness of the original, especially in the drumming of Mark Ferber. Again Corman offers a wordless vocal with brief scatting. She also overdubbed vocal parts, as well as the trombone that plays in unison with the melody. This recording concludes on the same discordant note as the 1957 original.

"Corman has some vocal characteristics."..."her singing appeals, primarily because of the quality of her voice. In its girlishness, it is reminiscent most obviously of Blossom Dearie; more remotely, it reminds me of Joanie Sommers
Cashbox Magazine

10.08.09Midwest Record Review

"SARAH CORMAN/Happy Little Tune: Not every college girl needs a new Joni Mitchell. Some of them need a cross between Bjork and Blossom Dearie and here we find Sobrette’s spiritual grand daughter doing an album of many covers, including “Both Sides Now", in a winsome way with some top flight players in tow. A fun set that gleefully colors outside the lines, Corman likes wending her own path and wearing her singularity like a merit badge. Fans of the subtle and off beat have a sweet new rabbit to pull out of their hats here."
Chris Spector - Midwest Record

10.05.09Another quote...

"We are playing on BBS....SARAH CORMAN'S...'HAPPY LITTLE TUNE'. She is an
unique, stylist and has a superb debut CD out. The titles we are
programming are GUILTY, HONEY PIE, TENDERLY (nice twist on this),
and DEEP PURPLE."

Jim Stone - Host of "Big Band Swing" on WLNZ - Lansing, MI

Thanks Jim! ~Sarah

02.20.09Gig TONIGHT (2/20) with Agent 99 @ Barbes in Brooklyn

So...typically Agent 99 performs with 5 members in the band. We were going to perform with three tonight but Greg's wife is having a baby! Yeah Gattuso's! So...tonight we're calling Agent 99, Agent 39.6, since we're 2/5ths of the band. In fact, Johnny Steele is pulling out his guitar tonight instead of his typical lap steel guitar. Should be an interesting gig! Hope to see you there!
