Susie Arioli – Embraceable

· by Frédéric Cardin

Clearly, Susie Arioli is on top form! This brand new album from the sunny Montreal singer follows in the footsteps of the other great offerings in the genre that she’s delivered since her debut (that’s a long time ago, but I’ll stop there. It would be impolite to suggest more). Embraceable is a happy mix of standards (Porter, Gershwin, Arlen are all invited to the table) and original compositions that have absolutely nothing to envy the classics of the Great American Songbook, both melodically and lyrically (Pendulum, My Plan, bluffing with stylistic perfection). There are also some lovely, well-balanced blues and some frank country incursions that betray the ever-essential presence of Jordan Officer, alongside Susie, in concocting these delights. I’d like to highlight the originality of the arrangement of On the Street where you live, which enhances this standard without distorting it. 

A Susie album is like returning to the roots of a happiness that is never forgotten or fades away. Every time you hear a new album by her, it’s as happy and authentic as ever. Susie is a faithful friend who you only see occasionally, which makes each return so precious. It has to be said that the last few years have seen the singer sail blindly after the divorce with her previous record label and agency. The Blü Dog label has taken over the reins, and we can’t thank them enough. All the more reason not to miss out on this.
