 Rüsselsheimer Echo, Jan Stich                                     
 "Fantasticly  commemorated  melancholy"   

Starkenburger Echo, Sigrid Jahn                                          
“An evening 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" 

Radio HR2 , Martin Grunenberg                                                 
"musically-vocally a mature performance..."

Rhein-Main-Spitze, Sergio Presta
"Marijke 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 actor.”

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".
  Müller-Kaiser, 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  bass 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."
