ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Vintage...potent, developed acoustic pop/folk" Tom Harrison, The Province

"Arrangements are simple and tasteful, fitting the songs like long silk gloves..." Tony Montague, Georgia Straight

"A very interesting group, think old jazz, & Billie Holiday…" Paul Norton, CO-OP Radio

“....the hippest Ukulele that you can hope to hear.” Ken Pickering, TD Canada Trust International Jazz Festival

“The musical equivalent of taking a bath in a barrel of finely aged bourbon.” Robert Collins, CTV

“Black Gardenia is that perfect balance between Louisiana Jazz and a hazy Maui afternoon.” Fleur Cooper, Citr Radio

“…..featuring the evocative vocalist, Daphne Roubini, who sounds at once retro (think Billie Holiday and Madeleine Peyroux) and yet cheekily modern and on trend.” Georgia Mancio ~ ‘Revoice’ Festival, London England.


“Black Gardenia features the evocative vocalist Daphne Roubini, who sounds at once retro – think Billie Holiday and Madeleine Peyroux – and yet cheekily modern and on trend.” Georgia Mancio, Artistic Director and
founder, ReVoice! Festival, London, UK.


Black Gardenia, the Vancouver-based six-piece whose ‘London Jazz meets Americana’ sound has delighted festival and club audiences on two continents, has released their debut album, ‘No Moon At All’, a collection of classic songs delivered in the band’s unique, darkly relaxed style.

“We have been honing our sound for two years now,” explains Black Gardenia’s founder and singer Daphne Roubini, “And we’re delighted to have an album that represents all that hard work and the incredible musical talent we’re lucky enough to have in this band.

“This album is so exciting because it marries the past and the present, exploring that mysterious area where jazz, folk and old time country meet. It harkens back to the past but it reflects today’s fascination with the old, with Americana. That’s why we put the Ukulele on the front cover. We’re keeping it simple. No airs and graces. Just great music.”

A new Billie Holiday incarnation.
