Wellington jazz vocalist Tessa Quayle’s self-produced album Whisper Not — a selection of ten jazz and American Songbook standards — is reviewed by US music site All About Jazz, which describes Quayle as a “gifted melodicist and improviser” and the record, “a fresh take on the traditional jazz repertoire”. “While she may not be a household name, yet, Quayle gives a performance that stands on its own two feet, firmly solidifying her as a singer to watch for as she moves forward in her budding career … this album is the first step in bringing much deserved attention to yet another hidden gem of the New Zealand jazz scene.”
