MICHAEL ELVES -PROGRAM DIRECTOR AT UMFM 101.5, RADIO

If this doesn't make you feel good to be alive and put a bounce in your step, I don't know what to say. On "Come With Me" Yuille is the pied piper and I am following her out of town….

 

DUSTY GROOVES CHICAGO USA

A hell of a singer, working here with some wonderful grooves from Timo Lassy – an artist we've really loved for his own jazzy projects in the past! Joyce Elaine Yuille has this style that's very classic, and very groovy – jazz-based, with a nice rasp in her voice that really brings out some of the more soulful qualities in the music – and able to write her own lyrics, too – which makes for a wonderful record that's full of fresh sounds at every turn! Lassy's music is wonderful too – tightly snapping on the rhythms, but never forced – and with a jazz current that's a nice change from other contemporary soul production, which might have been added to the record with a bigger label. But clearly, the real star of the show is Joyce – a talent that will definitely be huge in years to come – a rock-solid singer and songwriter who may well turn out to be the female equivalent of Gregory Porter. Titles include "Come With Me", "Tryin Times", "Chaos", "It's Madness", "Make Right", "Welcome To My World", "Follow The Sun", and "Late I Rise

 

SOUL BROTHERS RECORDS UK

Welcome to the world Of Joyce Elaine Yuille an amazing new Soulful Jazz singer who is accompanied by Timo Lassy and his band on her superb debut album for the ever reliable Schema label. Joyce has deep sultry soulful tones to her voice evoking memories of the greats and the band really swing on the 13 tracks. The up tempo ‘Come With me’, ‘Follow the Sun’ and ‘Running for my love’ have that retro jazz feel that the label is known for. ‘Make it Right’ swings like crazy and reminds me of Dinah or Ella. Joyce’s version of Marvin’s melancholy ‘It’s Madness’ is absolutely beautiful. Her cover of Donny Hathaway’s social commentary ‘Trying Times’ essential and the version of Esther Phillips ‘Just Can’t Say goodbye’ is a really strong soul-jazz dancer. The killer cut though is the amazing cover of Penny Goodwin’s beautiful evocative ‘Too Soon You’re Old’ that glides along and turn comes alight when Timo and the band crank it up mid way through. This Incredible album which manages to use old school values yet remains totally contemporary and is timeless quality music. It introduces an amazing talent and is a strong contender for Jazz album of 2015. (LP)
