Elvira Barjau's debut album - so this is LOVE - was released on February 14, 2012 through www.cdbaby.com/cd/elvirabarjau
Elvira Barjau explores what love is at different stages of its existence in one’s life; from its exciting and euphoric beginning, through its bitter-sweet moments, and finally, at its most mature and gratifying stage. Expressed soulfully and elegantly, So This Is Love features a collection of beautiful, jazz influenced, interpretations of classic and contemporary musical theatre standards.
So This Is Love features the delicious union of Jazz and Musical Theatre. The two genres have been coupled since the beginning of American Musical Theatre and experimented with – and beautifully performed – by legendary vocalists like Ella Fitzgerald, Billy Holiday, Sarah Vaughan, Frank Sinatra, Judy Garland, Nat King Cole. Even contemporary icons like Barbara Streisand and Tony Bennett have made stunning contributions to this unique style of music.
This particular style of music is a natural fit for Elvira Barjau, as well as her favorite style to perform.
