2010 debut album from the Dutch Jazz vocalist. Caro Emerald is the new kid on the block, but, boy, does she sound like she's been around! A voice so seductive and sultry, it's hard to believe she just recorded her debut album, a mix of 1950's-inspired ballroom Jazz, cinematic Tangos, groovin' Jazz tracks, infectious Mambos and banging beats. 12 tracks.

And now for something completely different... Caro Emerald and her band really know how to swing! She has a beautiful voice, talented musicians backing her and the songs have great lyrics, melodies and arrangements. Playing this makes me feel like I'm partying in a smoky club in the 1920s, living in the Jazz Age. I am so glad these folks are making this awesome music! This CD will make you want to crank the volume, grab a partner and dance!
Describing this CD is quite difficult. As many others point out, it's a very interesting blend of jazz, swing, pop, and many other varieties of music. There are no bad tracks on this disc, and I think I'd say I really like or love 10 out of 12 of the songs. Her voice is amazing, the song composition is very interesting and I love the over all feel. The musical production is impeccable, and the percussion really stands out (I wish I knew enough about recording/mastering music to explain exactly what I'm hearing!) I think this album will be in my CD player for at least 2 weeks, and will be a regular part of my rotation.
Brava, Caro! I will be listening for a long time.
I'm basically a Rock & Roller that likes all kinds of other music. This CD beats out most of the rock & roll I hear today.
The songs are a fusion of 30s and 40s big band sound mixed with Jazz & some hiphop and I don't know what else. But the songs are memorable and stick with you. Not like the one note wonder BS you hear today out of groups. This CD crosses so many barriers that young and old will love it. I've listened to Bittersweet and other groups like Caro E. but they may have one or two songs on their CDs that are good, then the rest are so so. I hope all her stuff is this good from now on.
