Caro Emerald, “Just One Dance”

Thanks to Joost (a visitor to this blog) I’ve just found out about Caro Emerald. I think she’s fantastic and her music will be on my next order with Amazon.

Radio here in Australia is so abysmal.

Arrrggghh!
The tyranny of the majority and commercial concerns!

I’m so glad that I have friends with taste who can turn me onto new and interesting music. My wife and I are always on the lookout (or perhaps I should say listening for) non-mainstream (by Australian standards, which isn’t saying much) music, so if any of you out there think I might like something you’ve heard, please let me know about it and I’ll go and check it out.

  1. Razz, thanks, her album is available at Amazon. There is even a vinyl double album from her available. She did conservatorium, was a song teacher and did some occasional jobs. Three Dutch producers and a songwriter wrote a song for a Japanese pop-act, and Caro was asked for singing the demo. She added the song, Back it Up’ to her own repetoire. She sung Back it up at a local television station in Amsterdan, then a jazz radio station picked up. After that, she became well-known outside Amsterdam and could record her album with vintage 50s jazzy songs. I bought the CD very recently. In the Netherlands, she’s hot and her concerts are quickly sold out.

    Yours, Joost

  2. Hi Razz,
    Caro reminds me of an old infatuation I had with Eddi Reader many (many) years ago. I’m sure you must have listened to ‘First of a million Kisses’ the Fairground Attraction album? If not, I recommend it. Some of the slower songs are sublime with wonderful lyrics.
    Kind regards, Kev.
