Industry Reviews

“Consistently in recent years Whaling City Sound has provided this station and the music rich Nashville market an impressive, expressive roster of talent including many of whom we’re presently playing (Moretti, Beck, Leibman,Monteiro & Robitaille). It’s a welcome, viable alternative to the steady flow of music from the “3 coasts'”

“As Music Director for one of the few remaining full-time jazz stations in the USA, I look forward to receiving Whaling City CDs. They are nicely packaged with all the necessary information about the contents easily accessed by our on-air hosts and their music covers straight-ahead, edgy, vocals and Latin which are all part of our daily jazz programming.”

“Whaling City is one of a handful of labels that I look forward to every release that they put out. I appreciate their commitment to quality music and progressive artists. It is small labels like Whaling City in which I believe the future of recorded jazz music will be dependent upon – with major labels cutting back their rosters in a big way. Thank goodness for Whaling City and other independent labels that are supporting the art and fostering deserving artists”

“I appreciate the high quality of Whaling City Sound recordings. They have a rich diversity of artists, and they capture the full array of jazz varieties. From swing, to bebop, great jazz vocalists, and instrumentalists. Whaling City Sound leaves nothing to the jazz imagination.”

“There are many record labels based in New England, but Whaling City Sound is the cream of the crop. They’re not only documenting the original jazz emanating from New England, but delivering that music to the world in a tight, pleasing and progressive package. There’s not a week that goes by without a Whaling City Sound disc being heard on New England’s Jazz And Folk Station. Keep wailin’ Whaling City Sound!!!”
