“Sonia Johnson, possède l’une des plus belles voix du jazz canadien et probablement la technique la plus impeccable. Ce qu’il y a de remarquable, c’est que son talent, sa créativité, sa polyvalence et son originalité se déploient autant dans le chant que dans l’écriture de textes et dans la composition!… Sa voix est solide, sensible, veloutée, parfaitement maîtrisée dans toutes ses intonations, ses inflexions, sa fluidité et son timbre chaleureux”

Frédéric Cardin, ICI Musique, Radio-Canada

“With a voice that is pure and silky and a delivery that is polished and timeless, the 13 all original tracks are a joy to listen to and blend together with a cohesion and effortlessness”

« …tour d’horizon très bien calibré qui vous feront oublier les vicissitudes de l’hiver. Après plusieurs écoutes, nous songeons à : Sergio Mendes, Dionne Warwick et pourquoi pas Tami Neilson. »

“…she knows what she’s talking about in any language. A modern take on the classic vocal format, she shows she knows how to do it and do it right. Writing as well as singing, this do it all player knows how to keep you on board throughout. Well done”

“But more than anything else, you get the sense that Chrysalis is a labour of love. Featuring beautifully crafted arrangements of beguiling variety and sensuousness, in every lovingly caressed phrase, Chrysalis lays bare Johnson’s adoration of music in all its harmonic sumptuousness. … listening to this music feels like opening an ornate box to reveal hidden gems.”

“It’s a beautiful record start to finish, all original music, great players!”

“world-class, brilliant and stellar masterpiece”

Jeff Moses, WJMX Smooth Jazz - Boston Global Radio

Sonia Johnson Jazz

Chrysalis- 4 étoiles - 4 stars
Ivan Rod, journalist(e), Copenhagen
.
“Sonia Johnson ressemble à bien des égards à la réponse du Canada à Cecilia Norby. Elle a le même poids et la même profondeur, la même clarté dans la voix et le même sens évident de transmettre la ballade que la Danoise. ...La musique est éminente, facilement accessible, mélodique et engageante, momentanément même saisissante. Elle a écrit ou participé à l'écriture de chansons elle-même (avec un seul numéro comme exception), et elle montre ainsi que ses qualités sont liées à la fois à l'écriture de chansons et à la performance. Des pièces comme “They Stole Your Song” et “Monsters” sont par exemple quelque chose de presque parfait. Aussi parce que Sonia Johnson est accompagnée d'un grand orchestre de jazz très compétent composé des alias David Ryshpan, Stephen Johnston, Mark Alan Haynes et Max Sansalone.”

“Sonia Johnson sounds in many ways like Canada's answer to Cæcilie Norby. She has the same gravity and depth, the same clarity in the vocals and the same obvious sense of conveying the ballad that the Dane has. ...The music is eminent, easily accessible, melodic and engaging, momentarily even gripping. She has written or participated in songwriting herself (with a single number as the exception), and thus she shows that her qualities relate both to songwriting and performance. Numbers like “They Stole Your Song” and “Monsters” are something near perfect. Also because Sonia Johnson is accompanied by a large, very competent jazz orchestra consisting of a.k.a. David Ryshpan , Stephen Johnston, Mark Alan Haynes and Max Sansalone.”
