Interview with the singer             Marijke Jährling
(eight takes, english voice-over)
 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 the  audience. Marijke Jährling interprets the famous and also lesser known songs (...)  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. She sings 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 accompanied by Rudolf Stenzinger on the bass, performing as a duo as in Gershwin's "Embraceable You". She distinctively sings those songs that the  jazz singing  pioneer, Billie Holiday, brought out of  often maudlin musical melodies , raising them to the peerage of the Jazz Standards.
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, but even so with figured bass and  cantabile lines from the tenor saxophone  or percussive playing from the bass clarinet, as in the lyrical “Gloomy Sunday” by Reszö Seress.  Müller-Kaiser introduces "Stormy Weather" with a powerful tone from his  saxophone and explodes into an overblown staccato with flapping noises, attacking high notes before Marijke Jährling's voice comes in.
"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" and to Billie Holiday's interpretations  of the 40's Hits, has succeeded greatly. Marijke Jährling  accomplishes the goal of her idol's intention by versatile voicing and personal phrasing, while the other band members sensitively create the sounds and the atmosphere of the songs.
