Debut CD: 'dyatribe': 1. dya (DY-uh): the first 3 letters of the name of jazz vocalist Dyan Kane 2. Tribe: a number of persons of any class or profession taken together -or- A group of people, under one chief or ruler, united by common ancestry, language or culture, as in WE ALL ARE ONE.
“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’.

"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!"
