ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
NEWS!! NEWS!! NEWS!!
REBECCA KYLER DOWNS IS ON A BRAND NEW CD WITH DIANA KRALL, BOBBY CALDWELL, and JOEY FATONE.

"Love Me Like Candy" is featured in the soundtrack of the new Alec Baldwin, William H. Macy hit movie "The Cooler" AND on the soundtrack CD.

HERE"S WHAT THE CRITICS HAVE TO SAY ABOUT HER SONG IN "The Cooler":

"...Anyone who has fallen under the spell of Diana Krall or any of the many Krall wannabes currently doing the rounds but would like something with rather a lot more sass, swing and sheer joy of music making should look no further. Let's hope there's more soon, but meanwhile this is the real thing from the hottest jazz singer since, and we mean this is the nicest way, Jessica Rabbit." GARY DALKIN, EDITOR: FILM MUSIC ON THE WEB

"'Love Me Like Candy' by Rebecca Kyler Downs will have you stripteasing for that special someone in your life. It oozes sex-appeal..." Emily Blunt, Blunt Reviews

I dug the contemporary jazz sound in the songs, especially the torch style jazz song "Love Me Like Candy" with Rebecca Kyler Downs. Her voice is sexy and the lyrics are cool...

Rebecca Kyler Downs gives a loose and playful, slinky performance of "Love Me like Candy... "

Il n'est pas nécessaire d'avoir vu le film pour apprécier le disque. C'est bon, c'est jazz, les interprétations de Rebecca Kyler Downs et Diana Krall sont très belles. Il n'y a absolument rien de négatif à dire sur ce disque qui vous fera passer un agréable, un très agréable moment.

BIOGRAPHY
Lush vocals, great writing and classic beauty are only part of what Rebecca Kyler Downs brings to the stage. She creates an intimate, late-night supper-club feel in every venue she plays. With her elegant appearance, trademark red satin gloves and rich, throaty voice she brings glamour, sophistication and romance to the stage.

"Down's characterizations range from sultry senusality through perky playfullness, sensitive introspection, little girl innocence, ironic bluesy resignation to good-time raunch and starry eyed nostalgic romance..." FILM MUSIC ON THE WEB

As a songwriter she experienced almost instant success. The title song of her debut CD, LOVE ME LIKE CANDY was snapped up by the producers of the TV series Roswell and again, used in the hit movie THE COOLER and selected for the soundtrack CD. BOOGIE WITH THE BAD CATS, another song she wrote for her debut CD, was used in DOWN WITH LOVE.

Rebecca has performed all over the world, sung on her own and others' CDs, been featured in VOGUE Magazine and has appeared on national television. She was featured on Steve Reid's (The Rippingtons, Supertramp) smooth jazz favorite "Dreamscapes", which climbed the Billboard Jazz charts last year, and she has not limited herself to music. Youll hear her sexy voice on many a Cd-Rom, commercial and cartoon - hint - she's always the bad guy...

*******************
HERE'S WHAT OTHER CRITICS HAVE SAID ABOUT HER WORK AND Her OWN CD...

"this lady can really sing..." LA JAZZ SCENE

"Every once in a while a truly quality chanteuse will appear on the music scene...Rebecca Kyler Downs' first solo release is masterfully arranged....the singer coos the opening title track so sweetly that it will take your breath away - as it did for the producers of Roswell on the WB, who picked up the song for the show's soundtrack this season...A true pleasure, LOVE ME LIKE CANDY is a modern masterpiece that blends sultry vocals with near perfect jazz and modern big band arrangements"

JOE WOOD, ATOMIC MAGAZINE, WINTER, 2001

"Sultry swing at its best..." 5678 SWING MAGAZINE

"Downs' vocals are wonderful...She mixes great standard swing tunes with wonderful originals and some great Latin tunes. No matter what style of vocals she uses she hits a home run...The musicians backing Downs are top notch...every tune is solid and entertaining and will keep your toes tappin'." STRUTTER'S QUARTERLY FALL 2000

"This CD is a finely crafted piece of work...There is no doubt that "Boogie With The Bad Cats" is destined to become a neo-swing standard..." ALLEGHENY MOUNTAIN RADIO

"...great songs, exellent production...this smells like a #1 record to me.." SWINGTOP40.COM

Rebecca Kyler Downs and Strictly Ornamental are pure delight...I can't think of a better way to spend and evening than in a watering hole with this fine outfit..."

Noah

It's great
Very sexy lady - and she can really sing. Red and The Redhots do a song with her on it, there's some latin stuff, some jazz, very very cool - my girlfriend loves it

Kim North

It is so good - I wish she had another one
I got this CD when I heard her song, Love Me Like Candy on Swing top 40. I just really like it. I'm into lindy and she isn't great for that, except for a couple songs, but I love listening to her. All the songs are different beats and styles, so you don't get bored listening to the same stuff over and over. I don't have to program some trax out - I love every tune - especially the french one Belle Epoch

Bbdoll

ummmmmm
YUMMY!

Tom Marzec

Most interesting and unique CD I own...Love to see a live show!
Very original interpretation of some classics, and great originals too. I'm a novice listener to this genre, but have not found anything to match the lovely voice, playful at times, and seriously seductive at others. A friend borrowed the first CD I bought and refused to return it, so I had to buy another. Can't wait for more original works!

Hb Funkster

As great as it gets
As the printed reviews state, once in awhile a true talent emerges. Few women have the vocal range of Ms. Downs and there's but a handful who have half her style. Her voice can break your heart ("I Got It Bad) or stay happily boppin'in your head all day ("Love Me Like Candy"). I have one friend who own this CD and plays it every single day while taking a bath. Her next CD, no doubt, will be filled with the same amazing writing talent and the smokin' beautiful voice of a REAL chanteuse. We're talkin' Ella, Nina, Dinah, KD quality here-no doubt about it. This is the ground floor of a truly talented artist on the fast track up. BUY IT! You'll love it.

Dan

great cd love it!
Great Cd with a good selection of songs. Some of the songs on this cd have become my new favorites. I hope she releases more soon!

James Petcoff

Dark, smokey with just a hint of danger. "Gimmie a bourbon on the rocks!"
These songs evoke the dark underside of a James Elroy novel with all the menace and desperation implied in Rebecca's sexy, smokey vocals. Great soundtrack music for a low rent gumshoe PI caper. Her versions of Love For Sale and You Needn't are the best I've heard in years and the band cooks!

colin

wow
WOW, THE WORLD NEEDS MORE MUSIC LIKE THIS. THE CD AND THE ARTIST ARE A BREATH OF FRESH AIR. wHEN DOES THE NEXT ONE COME OUT?

Peggy

Great CD!
I stumbled onto Rebecca by accident. I'm very glad I did. Love the CD!

Brenda Miller

Sexy voice, smooth, clever lyrics on the originals - flawless production
This is a GREAT CD. It is in my CD changer permanently. It has great vocals, a fabulous choice and variety of classic swing and jazz songs with outstanding arrangements and best of all, the original songs are at least as good as (and sometimes outshine) the classic tunes. The musicians are awesome and they solo a lot. I HIGHLY recomend this CD!!
