ABOUT

CAJSA ZERHOUNI

In 2018, jazz vocalist Cajsa Zerhouni released her debut album My Billie – an homage to Billie Holiday with a personal selection and expressive interpretations of songs from the legend’s repertory – and was immediately recognized by ways of her warm vocal tone, and her ability to tell a story with a song. In 2019, Cajsa went on to record her first full length album for Do Music Records, Estuary, including original compositions as well as intimate and personal renditions of carefully selected tunes from the American songbook.

REVIEWS

Liner Notes, Estuary

Just like all the truly great singers, Zerhouni is able to tell a story which the listener can instantly relate to. Be it heartbreak, yearning, happiness or frustration. Her warm tone, laid-back articulation and playful timing immediately captures the attention (...), an enviable quality for any vocalist or instrumentalist to be able to induce.

Lira Musikmagasin

Med ett varmt, nära tilltal debuterar sångerskan Cajsa Zerhouni med ep:n My Billie, sex låtar ur Billie Holidays repertoar.

Stockholm Jazz Festival 2016

Två absoluta höjdare var You Don´t Know What Love Is plus The Man I Love. Att få en sval blues från New Orleans var trevligt, särskilt när Zerhouni sträckte ut i sluttonerna. Sången var stundtals lika sammanflätad med pianots klanger som två enäggstvillingar.
