Frank Sinatra Praises Jan Daleys Exceptional Smooth Jazz Music

In the words of the incredible Frank Sinatra, “She’s got it.”  And Jan Daley certainly does! From her success as Miss California to her USO Tours with Bob Hope to her phenomenal recently released smooth jazz albums Jan Daley certainly has what it takes.  When Sunny Gets Blue is a rendition of Great American Songbook tunes from the classic days of music.  She worked with the late Jack Segal for years to master the smooth jazz music- some of which he wrote.  Jan Daley’s praise doesn’t end here.  The great Louis Armstrong described Daley’s voice as, “big and beautiful” and as, “one of the best balanced talent blend on the boards,” by Variety.

 

A standout on her smooth jazz album is the title track (When Sunny Gets Blue).  Jan Daleys personal interpretation is intricate and reminiscient of the original in an incredibly beautiful way.  The years of work and personal connection with Jack Segal are clear. .
