SOME WORDS, PHRASES AND CLAUSES ABOUT THIS RECORD: Trained as a jazz singer, Caro Emerald burst onto the scene in the Netherlands with some smash hit singles. Backed by a great combo that blends classic jazz and swing sounds with some modern flourishes, Emerald’s sound is pleasing and fun.

Her singing is expressive and fluid. She’s not trying to hit every high and low note, but rather would just rather use her voice to evoke moods and expressions. Her style and the sound crafted by hers and her producers make it so that she’s not a retro act, but a blend of old and new.

This is a fun record that’s great to put on for many moods.

GRADE: A: The songs are varied enough to keep you interested, and the arrangements and vocals are fun.
