Wendy Nieper is a very versatile, sophisticated jazz vocalist and a gifted scat singer. Her rich vocal colours are complemented by wonderful phrasing and great musicality, which is why Wendy is quite simply one of the leading jazz vocalists in the UK. Her wide experience as a singer has included being a member of the Swingle Singers with whom she recorded five albums. She has appeared on numerous albums both as a classical and jazz singer and has toured extensively across the Globe. On this album, Wendy is accompanied by an exciting band including the talented composer/pianist Roland Perrin and the jazz legend Digby Fairweather. First Flight is an explosive mix of styles from Cuban to jazz and pop to funk. If you like Diana Krall, Stacey Kent, Claire Martin then we’re sure you’ll love First Flight.

“… her versatility results in a cd that is full of variety & always enjoyable… Definitely one of the best singers in an overcrowded field.” ****

UK Jazz Radio 

 

“Nieper takes her voice every which way it can go with apparent ease… Wendy Nieper’s voice rises up the register with great subtlety reaching for those soaring stratospheric notes with consummate skill… she may well be setting off in a direction that could, with her pure, haunting vocal sound, produce another artist of the stature of Cathy Berberian.”
