iTunes Editors’ Notes

The songs on Caro Emerald’s first album unreel like clips from old movies you can’t quite place but seem hauntingly familiar. Deleted Scenes from the Cutting Room Floor conjures visions of '30s-era femme fatales and plucky heroines, with side trips into more contemporary scenarios along the way. Emerald—a Netherlands-based vocalist with impressive jazz chops—inhabits these musical vignettes with considerable poise and a sense of fun. Producers David Schreurs and Jan van Wieringen (who cowrote the album’s songs with Vincent Degiorgio) shift between styles and eras while maintaining a moody film noir ambiance. Emerald plays the sultry vamp on “Just One Dance” and “Absolutely Me,” gets torchy on “I Know That He’s Mine,” and cuts loose for a campy romp on “Dr. Wanna Do.” She’s even better on dance floor fare like the ultra-catchy “Back It Up” and the smoldering, Cuban-accented “A Night Like This” (both huge Dutch singles). “The Lipstick on His Collar” finds her striding into R&B diva territory over heavy brass and insinuating strings. Deleted Scenes signals Emerald’s emergence as a versatile talent to watch.

Customer Reviews

Forties comes to the Tens and Kicks its Butt!

This is among my favorite albums. In fifty seven years, I have been thrilled by Missy Hynes, Ella Fitzgerald, Lizzy West, Frank Zappa, Pink Martini, Elvis Costello and a million more - if you need to know my bona fides.

I have been listening to Deleted Scenes for a few weeks now. I am astonished at the lyrics, the voice, the orchestration, the instrumental proficiency. Caro herself in incredibly nimble lyrically. I'm not prepared to compare anyone to Ella, but no one else comes to mind. The tone of her voice is expressive and delicious. The music is just killer. The horn accents, amazing rhythmic constructions and overall context (What's the general term for that part that they called "Wall of sound" when Phil Specter was extant?) .. all add up to an amazing experience. The lyrics convey a subtle and emotionally satisfying message.

If you don't drive yourself crazy listening to this record until you are nearly ruined by it, you are not fully exploiting a real treasure.

True Music

This is a great album. Every track is a eazy brezzy treat to the ears. A moderen classic soulful, jazzy and sultry My kind of artist Caro is.

I found this artist on Perez Hilton covering Lady Gaga!

and she was AWESOME! I actually prefer Caro's version to Gaga's- its done in Polka and is amazing. I wish I could get it here, but she has some great jazzy sounding stuff I picked up here
