Miss Caro Emerald: good for the soul

I'm sort of a Johnny-come-lately to Caro Emerald; it's a month or less since I discovered her on a BBC Radio 2 live performance late one evening. Fortuitous though, as I get the benefit of getting a lot of her latest album and on Monday of this week her new album, The Shocking Miss Emerald was released. This, the second studio album by the Dutch singer does not herald a huge shift or change in direction; she sounds much as I expected her to, the style is not starkly different. A short intro and then thirteen songs - mostly of the tempo and feel you'd expect of her. So why, I ask myself is this album so damn good?

Caro Emerald dazzles with every note

Last night my heart went a flutter, again. I have a soft spot for the chanteuse and whilst flicking through the satellite channels I discovered last week, I came across a BBC Radio 2 performance that looked like it was recorded at the Radio Theatre at Broadcasting House. I'm not currently experiencing TV with an English language menu or program info, so I paused, wondering who she was; charming smile, elegant retro look, and she appeared to be wearing my Trilby. Had I seen her on Jools? She reminded me of Camille O'Sullivan and the stage looked good - so I waited for her to crank it up, and oh was I glad I did!
