Gentle airy jazz vocals Emi Takada – Why Did I Choose You?

Gentle airy jazz vocals Emi Takada –  WHY DID I CHOOSE YOU?:  We don’t get a lot of jazz from Japan these days, but I can tell you right now that the gentle, airy jazz vocals Emi Takada offers on her new release will make your day go better!  As always, the best way to get familiar with her ultra-cool style is to watch her trailer for the album…

…since I don’t read Japanese, I’m not sure if it’s actually her channel, but you can SUBSCRIBE to the channel, where you’ll find many of her performances.

Emi assembled quite a cast of players to support her mellow jazz vocal style… Michael Kanan (Piano), Neal Miner (Bass), Dwayne ‘Cook’ Broadnax (Drums), Satoshi Inoue (Guitar) and Special Guest Vocalist, Marion Cowings, and when you listen to Emi’s mighty mellow performance on “I’m In The Mood For Love“, you’ll be an instant believer in her timeless vocal jazz talent!

The swinging “No More Blues” will set your day up for success; any blues you might have been feeling will evaporate; Michael’s piano on this one is just stellar… I believe this 3:56 tune will be getting some MAJOR airplay all ’round the globe.

Emi proves beyond any shadow of a doubt that she’s truly GOT IT on my choice for personal favorite of the eleven songs she’s offered up for your aural enjoyment… her rendition of “Stormy Weather” is soulful and tasty through & through!

I give Emi and her players a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED rating, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) score of 4.98… get more information on Emi’s website.    Rotcod Zzaj
