The Language of Love

The Language of Love

by Carol Welsman

CD

Overview

Carol Welsman sings an easy, airy, romantic set with hints of passion and sensuality immersed in a savory palate of impressive nuance on The Language of Love. With three Juno Award nominations as well as the 2002 Vocalist of the Year award, the internationally acclaimed vocalist and pianist is appreciated more than ever. Welsman immaculately captures the unique expressions of love with elongated phrasings, lite scats, and endearing vocal techniques delectably mirrored in her bluesy rendition of Gershwin's "The Man I Love" and through the gentle swing of the French version of "Chanson de Maxence." Welsman takes the topic to new heights and eradicates the pain of falling in love with an upbeat bossa nova version of Cole Porter's "Just One of Those Things." She demystifies Gino Paoli's "Senza Fine" and beautifully brings the Italian composer's smooth essence to the forefront in his native language. This is a beautifully expressed piece and holds the listener captive until the final note is played. With The Language of Love, Carol Welsman surpasses her other endeavors and should garner more acclaim because of the delightful interpretations she offers.
