    “Julie Lyon Quintet is the best cure for the blues… Julie will give you almost an hour of warm, sincere and very cozy jazz. This American vocalist and her partners do not seek to create some bold experiments, avant-garde delights or to display the power of the voice. The voice of Julie Lyon is not about free rein sound but rather depth of experience and the aura of the truth of jazz will not leave you from the first track to the last.” – – Leonid Auskern, Jazzquad, Russia

about

"Julie Lyon Quintet is the best cure for the blues... Julie will give you almost an hour of warm, sincere and very cozy jazz. This American vocalist and her partners do not seek to create some bold experiments, avant-garde delights or to display the power of the voice. The voice of Julie Lyon is not about free rein sound but rather depth of experience and the aura of the truth of jazz will not leave you from the first track to the last." - – Leonid Auskern, Jazzquad, Russia

"Perhaps the most interesting element in this recording is the 'live in studio' nature lending a great deal of atmosphere and beatnik cafe society vibe to the affair. Well, actually, I'm assuming it was thus live 'cause it sure as hell sounds it—if not, if there are overdubs and such, then Tom Tedesco possesses some supernatural talents as an engineer. Singer Julie Lyon exhibits a large element of the happy-go-lucky in her swinging recitations, perhaps most vividly shown in her take on Dindi, about the snappiest version I've heard yet in a song that's been undergoing quite a renaissance in revisitations recently. Then there are the laid back, casual, way hip quotations from the quartet backing her, sounding as though just returned from a break in the back alley where the subject of 'discussion' was muggles, Jack Daniels, and maybe a nip or two of Romilar." - Mark S. Tucker, acousticmusic.com

"Ms. Lyon shows that the she knows exactly what she is doing here and executes all of her songs exquisitely. She's the real deal in her element here with a voice that is like a nice chianti - Smooth, subtle, complex, and a little playful. When she is singing, what you hear is not only the lyrics, but a visceral love of singing that shines through her instrument, very refreshing and appealing." - Jonathan Shade, nitelifeexchange.com

Track Name: Love For Sale
When the only sound in the empty street
Is the heavy tread of the heavy feet
That belongs to a lonesome cop
I open shop

When the moon so long has been gazing down
On the wayward ways of this wayward town
That her smile becomes a smirk
I go to work

Love for sale
Appetizing young love for sale
Love that`s fresh and still unspoiled
Love that`s only slightly soiled

Love for sale
Who will buy?
Who would like to sample my supply?
Who`s prepared to pay the price
For a trip to paradise?
Love for sale

Let the poets pipe of love
In their childish way
I know every type of love
Better far than they
If you want the thrill of love
I`ve been through the mill of love
Old love, new love
Every love but true love, love for sale

Appetizing young love for sale
If you want to buy my wares
Follow me and climb the stairs
Love for sale

Let the poets pipe of love
In their childish way
I know every type of love
Better far than they
If you want the thrill of love
I`ve been through the mill of love
Old love, new love
Every love but true love, love for sale

Appetizing young love for sale
If you want to buy my wares
Follow me and climb the stairs
Love for sale
Oh, love for sale
Love for sale
Track Name: Bye Bye Blackbird
Pack up all my cares and woes
feeling low here I go
Bye Bye blackbird

Where somebody waits for me
sugar sweet so is she
Bye Bye Blackbird

No one seems to love or understand me
and all the hard luck stories they keep handing me
where somebody shines the light
I'll be coming on home tonight
Bye Bye Blackbird

Nobody seems to love or understand me
and all the hard luck stories they keep on handing me
where somebody shines the light
I'm coming on home tonight
Bye Bye Blackbird
Track Name: Dindi
Sky, so vast is the sky, with far away clouds just wandering by,
Where do they go? oh I don't know, don't know;
Wind that speaks to the leaves, telling stories that no one believes,
Stories of love belong to you and to me.

Oh, dindi, if I only had words I would say all the beautiful
Things that I see when you're with me, oh my dindi.
Oh dindi, like the song of the wind in the trees, that's how my heart is
Singing dindi, happy dindi, when you're with me.

I love you more each day, yes I do, yes I do;
I'd let you go away, if you take me with you.

Don't you know, dindi, I'd be running and searching for you like a river that
Can't find the sea, that would be me without you, my dindi.
Can't find the sea that would be me without you dindi.

Track Name: Temptation
Rusted brandy in a diamond glass
Everything is made from dreams
Time is made from honey slow and sweet
Only the fools know what it means

Temptation
Temptation
Temptation
I can't resist

I just know that she is made of smoke
But I've lost my way
She knows that I am broke
But that I must play

Temptation
Temptation, yeah
Temptation
I can't resist

Temptation
Temptation
Temptation
I just can't resist

Dutch pink and Italian blue
She is there and waiting for you
My will has disappeared
My confusion is oh-so clear

Temptation
Temptation
Temptation
I can't resist

I can't resist

Rusted brandy in a diamond glass
Everything is made from dreams
Time is made from honey slow and sweet
