A charming vocal album by a singer with a gospel background and deep appreciation of the jazz greats...this is an impressive debut.
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.
Silken-voiced jazz goddess. The light but sure touch of this Filipino-Bajan babe stirs up a quiet storm of a superior kind.
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.
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!
Elisa's voice is strong and clear, poised and sophisticated.
Ella-esque - a fine young singer.
Good jazz singers are a rare breed and only one gets my vote this time. Elisa Caleb with "Carry Me Home". A stone delight.
