Do you like emotion? Well our rendition of "How Insensitive" will leave you breathless.
Robert Turner/Piano, Ryan Cross/Bass, Lyndon Rochelle/Drums and yours truly, vocal.
To record Radiohead's "Pyramid Song" on a Jazz album is risky, but we had the right stuff to make it work. Dreamy, moody, and a little pop-jazzy. Robert Turner/Piano, Ryan Cross/Bass, Lyndon Rochelle/Drums.
Willow Weep for Me
We swing this standard in 3/4 time - something slightly different for you. Robert Turner/Piano, Ryan Cross/Bass, and Lyndon Rochelle/Drums.
Miles Davis wrote a beauty when he penned this classic jazz tune. We added lyrics and improvised the outcome. We had the right stuff to make it all turn out right.
Robert Turner/Piano, Ryan Cross/Bass, Lyndon Rochelle/Drums.

A few cool reviews from a few nice peeps:
“The musicianship is right in the pocket and Dyan's phrasing is impeccable. The choice of these songs for her and the band [Robert Turner/P, Ryan Cross/B, Lyndon Rochelle/D)] appear to have the unifying effect necessary to pull off a grand performance like this. Dyan is in possession of haunting refrains that make me smile.” -James M. Janisse -"The Gentleman of Jazz"
“Dyan Kane and the Robert Turner Trio [Ryan Cross/Bass, Lyndon Rochelle/Drums], reinvent several familiar songs in unusual and imaginative ways. No matter how complex the music, or how assertive the ensemble, the singer sounds confident and relaxed, floating above it all with fresh improvising and a smile in her voice.” – Scott Yanow, staff writer ‘The LA Jazz Scene,’ author of 11 books including ‘The Jazz Singers’.
"I listened to the album over and over. I'd just love it. Your singing is alway unique and enjoyable ....it's one of a kind! Your voice has a special sound and no one else has it!! It is one of the best jazz vocal albums of the decade." - Toshi Taenaka, CEO, Interplay Records
"Dyan Kane's DYAtribe is a great listen. Let me put it this way - whatever song I'm listening to is my favorite because they're all equally wonderful. Her amazing voice, unique interpretations of classics, and awesome musicians make this a joy to listen to again and again. And I'm not even a jazz person -- except when it comes to this CD!" --Marian Rosin, Comedian/Actress/Writer, NYC The first single, 'Eleanor Rigby', off 'dyatribe', can now be downloaded at CDbaby.com, ITUNES.com, and AMAZON.com!'Eleanor Rigby' is also streaming at Pandora and Spotify!
