Tasty tantalizing jazz vocals Emilie Samson – AN INTROVERT’S DREAM: What “won me over” (on an INSTANT basis) was watching Emilie’s touching live performance of the Beach Boys “Wouldn’t It Be Nice” video trailer for her new EP…
…right now, there’s only that one video, but I still recommend that you SUBSCRIBE to Emilie’s YouTube channel, as I expect there will be many posted there over the coming months.
Emilie put together a very high-energy, high-talent group of folks to compliment her magical vocal skills… trumpet: Alec Aldred; trombone: Seth Weaver; saxophone: Rico Jones; piano: Robinson De Montmollin; bass: Sean Burke and Phil McNeal on drums all work together to make her SHINE on tunes like the upbeat “Nobody’s Heart“… Robinson’s piano just ABOUNDS with energy on this superb tune… DJ’s are gonna’ LOVE this one!
The opening track, “If you never come to me” gives each of the players a chance to shine brilliantly, and you’ll find yourself totally captivated by Emilie’s vocal on this tune.
Of the five superb songs offered up, my choice for personal favorite is Emilie’s rendition of Sting’s “La Belle Dame Sans Regrets“… I’m not entirely sure why (maybe it’s the language), but I’m really reminded of Astrud Gilberto on this tune… this is a song that you’ll find yourself coming back to often… my advice… keep your ears out for this brilliant young singer – you’ll be hearing much more from her!
I give Emile and her players a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED rating, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) score of 4.98 for this excellent jazz vocal adventure. Get more information on Emile’s website. Rotcod Zzaj
