Quotes

"When it comes to the American songbook, there might not be a better keeper of its flame than John Alcorn. His personal approach finds the singer infusing the material with burning passion, but never at the expense of a song's details." - The WholeNote

"can sing as well as anyone in jazz today." - All About Jazz

"I want him in my living room." - Now Magazine

"wonderful, heavenly sounds and sights sophistication, showmanship and understated panache, sultry, flirtatious and humorous playing with the words and growling through some of the phrasing ranging from low and raspy to open-the-floodgates intense Mr. Alcorn, as a performer, radiates whatever he is singing. He doesn't just sing the song. He makes the music come alive" - The Live Music Report

"one of our finest interpreters of the "great American songbook," an artist who always knows how to walk the fine line between respecting the material and offering an original interpretation." - Toronto Star

"one of the most exciting vocal interpreters to appear on the scene in many years, Alcorn is the consummate vocal artist combining intuition, musicality and good taste."
- JazzFM.91

"sophisticated - one of the city's best cabaret performers" - Globe And Mail

"magical music manmusician hipster extraordinaireAlcorn and his quartet elegantly delivered standards steeped in retro sophisticationAlcorn cuts a mean interpretation a la young Tony Bennett without wallowing in the sentimental nostalgia of a Michael Feinsteinhe might indulge in That Old Black Magic but Alcorn isn't hypnotized by it. And that, ultimately, cast a much more relevant spell." - Now Magazine
