5.0 out of 5 stars Not Norah Jones!, 9 Nov 2006
This review is from: Not Alone (Audio CD)
I can see why it's easy to compare Julia Biel to Norah Jones, but that's doing this album and this singer a huge disservice. I'm not a fan of the pseudo-jazz pap pop that gets so much airplay these days, and this is the real deal. Genuine soul-melting jazz that ranges from light and frothy to mournful love songs that will have you hitting the repeat button again and again. Easily accessible to those who don't necessarily like jazz, this will still keep the most ardent jazz fan happy. Julia Biel stands head and shoulders above all those other artists. Next time someone mentions Norah Jones, slap em in the face with your Julia Biel CD!

5.0 out of 5 stars Utterly gorgeous, 22 May 2006
By 
This review is from: Not Alone (Audio CD)
This is just beautiful. Lyrically, musically and vocally gorgeous. Julia Biel's singing simply undoes me. In the new wave of Jazz-type pop (Norah Jones and all the rest), this is the best I've heard.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Album, 30 Dec 2006

This review is from: Not Alone (Audio CD)
I saw Julia live at a small Jazz bar in soho last summer. So impressed was I that I bought the album there and then. It does not dissapoint. It is Jazz, but not as you know it. It is a wonderful mix of jazz with a slightly more mellow, vocal orientated bass to it. Excellent, the album is to jazz what Frou Frou's wonderful "Details" album does for House music.

A real find
