Diana Panton has quietly become one of the brightest lights on the jazz scene today. Her work is consistently praised by listeners and music critics alike for her ethereal vocals, exceptional song selection and emotional intensity. Her sophomore album “If The Moon Turns Green” features accompaniment by Don Thompson on bass and piano, as well as Reg Schwager on guitar, and was nominated for Jazz Album of the Year in 2009 at the National Jazz Awards.
Starting with the bass and guitar introduction of the opening track, vocal jazz fans can anticipate that this album will bring more joy than expected. Diana enters with a voice that is both endearing and charming. It is clear as day that this romantic “moon and stars” album ushers in a new star, that of the honey-toned Diana Panton. Her singing is at once smooth and bittersweet. The music is enriched by the important contribution of Don Thompson and Reg Schwager who lend their bouncing support to make the album really swing.
