Album Remarks & Appraisals:

When asked who would be the successor to her throne, world renowned jazz vocalist Rita Reys always pointed to Fay Claassen. So, it was only logical that after Reys' sad demise in 2013, it was Claassen who teamed up with Rita's last working band, the Peter Beets Trio, for an Amsterdam performance in honor of "Europe's First Lady of Jazz." This album was recorded live during that tribute concert.

Fay Claassen has recorded several albums with internationally-known musicians such as Mike Stern, Kenny Werner, and Toots Thielemans. Winner of the first Chet Baker Award, Fay has also received two nominations for the Edison Award and won the All About Jazz Critics Poll for Best Vocal Release (2006). Recorded live during a tribute concert to "Europe's First Lady of Jazz" Rita Reys.

Fay Claassen remains one of Europe's, if not the world's, preeminent stylists.
