Product Description

Julian Yeo is an international jazz/cabaret vocalist currently residing in NYC. An Australian of Asian descent, Julian was exposed to a wide array of music while growing up. However, he has always been fascinated by singers from the 20s to 50s. Julian's critically acclaimed debut CD album 'Old, New, Borrowed, Blue' is an eclectic mix of new compositions and standards tied together with a common theme - LOVE. The CD is currently being played on numerous domestic and international radio stations. The CD is also on several top 10 charts! Perhaps the title of the CD sums it up, there is certain quality in his voice that sounds like old recordings you hear from a gramophone (OLD); at times, his voice even evokes a certain nostalgia that we hear in singers in the past like Fred Astaire, Dick Haymes and Rudy Vallee (BORROWED). Yet there is something undeniably hip about his renditions that is refreshingly unique (NEW). One thing that is evidently clear from his singing is the manifestation of his love for the songs and the directness in his delivery that are distinctively 'Julian Yeo' (BLUE).

"I can't remember the last time I encountered such a thoroughly original artist as Julian Yeo or an album that as utterly entertaining as his 'Old New Borrowed Blue'. --Jeff Rossen, Cabaret Scenes Magazine

This is definitely not a generic vocal Jazz CD that one would hear nowadays. The vocal is distintive with a tone that reminds me of the retro crooners - something that I simply love and cannot resist. The music is so charming, the 'so right' combination of old vocal styling and modern musical arrangements make this CD a very captivating listen. What a surprise find!

I bought this CD after listening to it twice...it grows on you...at first I said What is this......it was different....his diction..

Australion...then come to find out he is of Chinese Heritage..WOW....and he is smart...believe me....The musicians are great...the piano...the bass the drummer are all terrific...and the singing like an old Jazz singer...but done by a young handsome Asian Singer.......you end up singing the words like he does......I now have my friends listening to him...and I have told them they are going to have to buy their own...I am possessive ..this CD is mine...can't wait for the next one..Janice

His style is reminiscent of the old crooners like Bing Crosby. The songs don't benefit from his style of delivery. He should be bringing a new style to them.
