The Christmas Song  Let it Snow
A Song for You   Who Can I Turn To
Send In the Clowns  My One and Only Love

Since 1985 Herb Caruso (a.k.a. Hansi Caruso), who has been hyped by critics as Austrian Frank Sinatra, has been active as a jazz singer and performer and has been one of the most interesting crooners in Austria ever since.
Who else could come up with the idea in Vienna to keep the long and venerable tradition of the American Songbook alive?
Who else could develop the over-sized stage personality of a Hansi Caruso for many years with different formations based on the way of life of this American era?
Herb Caruso here presents a mature album with a real sense for the genre of jazzballads and swing. It transports the compositions of his great idols effortlessly into the 21st century without making the impression of being on a nostalgic trip. His simple but convincing maxim: „You can bring what you feel" and „You can sing when you swing“.
For this very imtimate recordings he invited a very delicate rhythm section with pianist, organist and arranger Erwin Schmidt, the great jazz guitarist Christian Havel and drummer Lukas Böck.
This special Christmas Edition has wonderful versions of The Christmas Song and Let it Snow!

Doujie Gazelle Groove

Christian Havel, one of the leading Jazz guitarists of Europe, started “just for fun” jamsessions in the oriental club/restaurant „Aux Gazelles”, somewhere in Vienna. Out of this Session grew a really tight band, this studio recording is a document and a prove for that! The lovely combination of a warm sounding Jazzguitar, a smokey Hammond organ, a light and swingy drums and a snake charming saxophone bring us in the feeling to be right between New York and the Orient.
