Starkenburger Echo, Sigrid Jahn
you won`t forget: "Lover Man", "Lady Sings the Blues",
"All of me" - NOLA spreads them
as shimmering pearls to the
audience. Marijke Jährling interprets the famous and also lesser known
songs of Billie Holiday (...) sometimes in a supercool
way, then defiant, or passionately, such
as Billie Holiday's worldwide success in 1939 "Strange Fruit"
(...) and thereby again she will prove
her respectable vocal range"

a mature performance..."
Rhein-Main-Spitze, Sergio Presta
Jährling not only gives her voice but
also her soul to great classics like
"That Ole Devil Called Love" or "Them There Eyes" She
effortlessly made both come alive, melancholic ballads and upbeat numbers, due to her great voice and her skills as an
Jazzpages, Klaus Mümpfer
Marijke Jährling (...) has a unique way of
singing... with emotion and empathy, at times fragile, then lascivious,
sometimes with vibrato and then just in a chillingly way. She sings in dialogue with Steffen Müller-Kaiser on the
saxophone, or accompained by Rudolf Stenzinger on bass, performing as a duo
as in Gershwin's "Embraceable You".
Stenzinger and pianist Lukas Moriz are perceptive companions to the singer.
They underline the songs with sparse chordal interjections or bulky runs on the
piano, with mostly straight plucked
or percussive playing from the bass clarinet, as in the lyrical “Gloomy
Sunday” by Reszö Seress. "Very
well done", that was the comment of jazz pianist Bob Degen on the debut
album of Nola. In fact, the four artists from the Frankfurt Rhine-Main Region
broke down the Big Band arrangements
into the intimate setting of this quartet. Their musical approach to the
unforgettable "Lady Day" has greatly succeeded."
