This I Know is a journey of emotions and music that includes rarely done jazz songs and two original pieces. The album includes unique arrangements of elegant sophisticated jazz, and also songs with an earthy, bluesy blend. A touch of South African jazz and street music harkens back to the land of June’s birth.

 

It is like experiencing an airy nimbleness matched to a richness of sound, which sometimes seems impossible from the human voice. I want to say that it is partly due to the dynamic range and balance, so much colour, detail and air rarely, if ever, heard by a singer since Abbey Lincoln…the combination of sensuous luxury, effortless precision, characterful interpretation and the warmth of empathy.

Garber has always been known for her warm, effusive vocal style but now her voice has another layer of burnishing that adds even greater depth.  This is how jazz is sung.

About June

Watching June sing, you feel as if she is singing directly to you. Her warmth and sheer joy at being on stage envelopes you, pulls you close and encircles you with her warmth.

 

Every song that she chooses to sing connects to a base truth within – so there is never any artifice. Her voice reflects each emotional shift that the writer intended, whether swinging with an up tempo jazz song or telling a story with a soulful ballad. The stagecraft she learned in her earlier career as an actor is still evident in her singing performances today.

 

Of course that’s the miracle of June Garber; her instinct for capturing and delivering the details of a story and the nuances of emotions – the combination of sensuous luxury, effortless precision, characterful interpretation and the warmth of empathy.

- Raul DaGama

 

June has toured and performed as a singer in major centres in Canada and the United States and also in Cuba, the Caribbean, Mexico, South Africa & Australia. She has performed at jazz festivals throughout North America and with big bands in Toronto and Sarasota, Florida.
