Elisa Caleb sings jazz classics in a light and airy Brazilian style and her husband's songs as though they were already classics. Anyone who bought a bit of early Ella Fitzgerald Decca vinyl at a gig in the mid-forties, would have been pleased, I'm sure. There is just a sparkling hint of the First Lady of Song in Elisa Caleb. I've been listening to the star ever since.
Elisa's voice is strong and clear, poised and sophisticated.

This beautiful, haunting song [The Wind] is stripped back with crystal clear vocals from this young singer. She's got a laid-back jazz vibe and mixes it up with a bit of gospel.
Ella-esque - a fine young singer.
Once in a while a voice reaches deep inside you. That's how I first heard Carole King, Maria Muldaur, Sarah Vaughan and Peggy Lee. And if this song and Elisa's gloriously subtle phrasing don't do that for you, you're a poor lost soul!
A charming vocal album by a singer with a gospel background and deep appreciation of the jazz greats...this is an impressive debut.
Good jazz singers are a rare breed and only one gets my vote this time. Elisa Caleb with "Carry Me Home". A stone delight.
Silken-voiced jazz goddess. The light but sure touch of this Filipino-Bajan babe stirs up a quiet storm of a superior kind.
