ED Music Review: Blue Cafe Jazz (Magdalena Reising) EDINBURGH 2011
5 STAR REVIEW ~ THREE WEEKS

“Julie London meets Sinead O’Connor in Magdalena Reising. Somewhere between the wistful old-school glamour of her silky voice, floor-length sparkly white gown and the traditional Scottish and Polish folk songs she integrates seamlessly with her original compositions, Magdalena has found a sound that is both timeless and magical. Everyone was silently captivated from start to end. With her harp, named (she told us) Queen Gabriella, Graham Robb on double bass and Louise Durra on piano, the dreamlike quality of her voice echoed with skill and flair, and the chemistry between the three performers, as well as her convivial anecdotes, created a tingling intimacy with the audience that made them feel like old friends. I bought the CD.”
