Sarah Maisel

Sarah Maisel (ukulele and vocals) was born in Birmingham, Alabama and has always had a love for music. At the age of 6, she began violin lessons and played in youth orchestras for several years. For the 10 years she studied her focus was Classical Music. During that time she also tried her hands at the piano, taking lessons for 3 years.

”“The Lady is a Tramp” is rollicking swing jazz with Maisel’s precise ukulele chording and intricate solo dominating, she manages to cover keyboard touches and alternative string voicing in the instrumental. Her vocal power on “Walking After Midnight” sings answers to some nice Hawai’ian steel accents by Gary Brandin; like on several other tracks, the uke gives this classic a shot of energy – more oomph. With “Lullaby of Birdland” it’s easy to (almost) forget about Maisel’s novel instrumentation and superb solo as the jazz-combo arrangement and excellent singing turn this chestnut into a disc highlight.

“Nearness of You” is an nicely textured, instrumental showpiece that Maisel uses to cast a spell of harmonics and beautifully picked, lyrical figures that sound almost like they are being played on a harp.” - San Diego Troubadour
