"...Deeply personal and connected....a smart set list chosen with care and attention to detail....heart-rending emotional clarity..."
-- Mark Christian Miller, Mark Heard it First
"Here’s a hip vocalist that delivers like a closing reliever-lots of variety and keeps you guessing with his changes of speed.
-- George Harris, Jazz Weekly
"Gimble has a tone, an inflection in his voice seldom heard today and certainly not at this high level...
Gimble can go from joyous scatting to a blues infused ballad.
Remember the name Jeffrey Gimble."
"A first call cocktail hour swinger. A solid bet for when your ears are bleating for something sophisticated but fun and lighthearted.”
-- Chris Spector, Midwest Record
"...a new male voice sure to make an impact in the jazz world...stunning debut "
- Edward Blanco, All About Jazz
"Gimble brings fine shading to the more complex lyric/melody dynamic. An artist with significant talent and flair. "Gambler" Gimble is definitely playing with house money. Bet on it."
-- Nicholas F. Mondello, All About Jazz
"An impressive debut.."
-Scott Yanow, LA Jazz Scene
“An auspicious debut….a cause for celebration.
Jeffrey Gimble deserves to be noticed.”
-- Jack Goodstein, Seattle Post-Intelligencer
"Vocalist Jeffrey Gimble is a unique new voice on the jazz scene. What makes Beyond Up High, Gimble’s debut effort, such a pleasure to listen to is hearing the joy in his approach to the material."
-- D. Glenn Daniels, The Jazz Page
"A deft immersion in be-bop, lounge, scat, Michael Franks-ish romanticism, and an element neither I nor critic/liner-notes writer Don Heckman nor anyone can nail down... I suspect it's that same something Sammy Davis Jr. possessed: the Entertainer Element. Yep, the Entertainer Element, long thought extinct but... now suddenly erupting full-blown in Jeffrey Gimble. It's the only thing that explains the matter."
-Mark S. Tucker, Folk & Acoustic Music Exchange
“It's high time my old friend Jeffrey Gimble was out front, singin' and swingin' like I always knew he could!
Bravo, Jeffrey! More, please. “
-- Grammy-Winning composer, singer & musical director Billy Stritch.
“He makes the very difficult sound so easy and delivers a nice experience for the casual listener and to the more discerning jazz listener as well. Jeffrey Gimble has that unique ability…to make it seem as if it’s easy to interpret these lines while utilizing his rich and relaxed approach to the music.”
-- The Jazzine
