ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Deemed by one critic as "world jazz", singer/songwriter/pianist Adele Wilding performs groove-based jazz with an ambient crossover appeal. Adele combines finely crafted melodies, introspective lyrics and warm vocals to enhance tales of life and love. Her self-financed, debut CD, "Emeralds (& Other Little Gems)", was released on her own indie label, Blue Dawn. The CD showcases Adele's original songs, as well as re-interpretations of the jazz standard "You Go to My Head" and Janis Joplin's "Move Over". "Emeralds" has been acclaimed by reviewers and professional jazz musicians from the UK, Europe, North America and South America.

Standout tracks include the bossa flavoured 'Autumn', the Caribbean inspired 'Coming Home', the haunting 'Hide An Emerald' (the first of a trilogy on the CD) and the reflective 'It Isn't Me'. Musical contributions are courtesy of some of the UK's finest players of jazz, popular and world music, including Jules Turner (tenor sax, clarinet), Mike Davidson (guitar, bass), Mark Simpson (drums) and acclaimed percussionist Volker Strater.

'Emeralds (& Other Little Gems)' was produced and arranged by Adele Wilding and co-produced by Steve Tsoi.

Interesting
After more listening of this CD we noticed that we missed a little bit the point of it so our final comment is: "Extraordinary songs and smooth vocal!".

Extraordinary songs but a little bit too much artificial sweetness in the vocal.
