Sentimental Journey by Emmy Rossum Review

Sentimental Journey by Emmy Rossum Review

So I put my CD in my computer and I feel like I am automatically transferred through time and I am in another year in a jazz lounge just enjoying the sounds and atmosphere.  Emmy Rossum’s voice is soothing and melodic and its certain to leave you wanting more.  I love the covers of these songs and the fact that it makes me fell like I am living in a different place and time.  Its so relaxing and enjoyable for me.  Classic entertainment.  I  immediately feel in love with the song and title track ‘Sentimental Journey’ it was a stunning opener and a great lead into the whole album.  I also enjoyed the tracks ‘These Foolish Things (Remind Me Of You)’ and ‘Nobody Knows You When You’re Down and Out’.  The piano and other instruments also made this a very good listen.  You are going to want to get this album for yourself or any jazz lover in your life.

AlbumCover

 

The album Sentimental Journey, releasing on January 29th, is a collection of classic covers that takes us through the American Songbook, the multi-talented actress and singer brings her stellar voice to songs popularized by some of the most beloved artists of the last century.  This 12-song ‘passion project’ is an emotional musical journey and each song represents a month of the year.  “Each song needed to either lyrically or emotionally reflect the corresponding month,” Emmy explained. “Some songs were obvious fits, like Summer Wind for June, and Pretty Paper for December. Others songs were less literal fits. I chose Nobody Knows You (When You’re Down and Out) for September because, to me, the plaintive melody and lyric emotionally reflect the cold weather creeping in and the sense of melancholy we can get in the fall months.”  Did you know that Rossum is also an acclaimed actress who currently stars in the Showtime series Shameless with William H. Macy. She also stars alongside Emma Thompson and Viola Davis in the upcoming feature film Beautiful Creatures, which hits theaters on February 13th.
