ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"At first one might think the greatest benefit of the lounge-y torch song revival is the idea of a smoky-voiced chanteuse sporting tattoos- mmm...classic beauty+punk sensibility=yummy. But Albuquerque's Bernadette Seacrest could be dressed in business casual for all we care. After all, she posses one of those rare voices that summons up romantic demons, lost loves and well-made cocktails. Her new CD, "No More Music By the Suckers", is a tapestry of slick noir ballads and sweet melodies. And you know what? Maybe the tatts are pretty cool too."
-The Santa Fe Reporter

"Seacrest, whose last gig was with the Albuquerque rockabilly outfit The Long Goners, has evolved into a tattooed chanteuse specializing in jazzy, torchy and extremely tunes with a band featuring a double bass, sax and trombone. While Seacrest's voice is the main draw here, don't forget The Yes Men, who create the dangerous atmosphere. Grimes' bass is a major component on most cuts. And sometimes the horn section sounds like they're engaging in a gang rumble."
-The Santa Fe New Mexican


"Her sultry, silky voice spreads across the room like a lush, warm blanket of velvet and ably pays homage to the composers and performers who made those songs so unforgettable in the first place."
~Albuquerque Journal


"You can practically smell the cigarrette smoke and taste the bootleg booze of a speakeasy club when you listen to the music of this retro swinging group. Lead singer Bernadette Seacrest has a sultry voice perfectly backed by a group of able jazz musicians."

Fantastic bass and vocals
I had heard a couple cuts of the CD on Download.com and tried to get a copy right then and there. I loved it. But it wasn't available till a couple months later. So I had to wait until it appeared on CD Baby. I have no regrets. It's a great CD. (And Bernadette is one sexy looking fox!)

Sexy,Sultry, Soulfull !
Great Album!! Can't wait to see her preform live again.. Bernadette & Her Yes Men make me proud to be in Albuquerque.. Best Jazz band in the 505!

Windancer


Absolutely awesome recording! Could be the soundtrack of any noir movie. Bernardette Seacrest & Band at their best!

Torchy goodness
I host an early jazz and pop show on our local community radio station, and I am constantly on the lookout for new artists that have the feel and sound of the 1920's-1950's. This is a treasure trove of material.

SJL

She is beautiful and an amazing singer.
This CD is great. All songs are great. They sounds great. etc, etc, etc.

Julia Smith

What's all the fuss about?
I usually like torch music, but this really could use a bit more originality and spark. I can see what she's trying to do here, but the vocals are sometimes a bit unrefined and the nasal quality of her tone is overdone. I must say, though, that the Yes Men are A-OK!

Linn

Sweet!
I love this CD, it is perfect for a Friday afternoon with a glass of wine. :O) It turns my living room into a sweet and smoky jazz place... Thank you!!

CD Baby


A sizzling, dangerously tempting blend of crafty, slithering, creeping Squirrel Nut Zippers-type swing wrapping in dark, spooky tango, sinister carnival jazz, sultry yet shifty female vocals, mischievous detective music and the everpresent deviant, naughty girl vibe, Bernadette Seacrest and Her Yes Men bring it all to the table for a knock-out album. With her tastefully boozed-up voice that weaves and curls like the implied cigarette smoke wafting through the heavy atmospheres she paints, you'll find yourself transported to the dark, dank back room of a rickety saloon on the menacing side of town. In a word, superb.

Paul Hoffman

Jazz done right
Bernadette and her yes man nail every song like your favorite ball cap fits your head. I have played it for various taste in music and everyone loves it. Only a great CD can bridge the music divide that all can enjoy.

George Lawrence

Fianally a contemporary sultry voice seems from out of the of great jazz age. S
This CD is a welome releif to the standards. Very inovative and fresh sounding. Like the way the sounds all blend so sweetly and naturally. Need more of these.
