Here’s another gem from Emilie-Claire Barlow, a jazz singer whose unique voice and personal interpretations warmly embrace this collection of classic standards, many from the American songbook. On this occasion, Emilie-Claire chose to include the often ignored verses in the tradition of Frank Sinatra and Tony Bennet. This album was nominated ‘Vocal Jazz Album of the Year’ at the Juno Awards.
Named after the 1934 Ray Noble-penned standard made famous by Bing Crosby, The Very Thought of You is the sixth studio album from Canadian jazz vocalist Emilie-Claire Barlow. Released in 2007, it features silky-smooth renditions of Nat King Cole’s “Almost Like Being in Love,” Billie Holiday ‘s “What a Little Moonlight Can Do,” and Mama Cass’ “Dream a Little Dream of Me” alongside interpretations of hits from various musicals including Guys and Dolls, Oklahoma!, and Pennies from Heaven.
