“A voice, romantic without being cloying, warm but not forced, Karrant carries these songs with an emotional weight that make it seem at times as if he had written them himself. Just listen to his jazzy makeover of the Beatles’ eternally beautiful “In My Life” and hear the yearning in his singing.” –Jazz Corner
“Jonathan Karrant works straight out of the American songbook with a level of manly confidence and jazz suave and bonhomie that was patented by Mel Torme himself.” -The Reader magazine
