Product Overview

"One Night With Frank" is just one of the charming and wistful original songs from the incredibly gifted singer/songwriter Erin Boheme on her Concord Records debut. For this ingenious composition, the 18 year-old from Oshkosh, Wisconsin (and her co-writer Guy Chambers) weaves 19 songs from "Ol' Blue Eyes" into a fantastical story about a meeting with her long-time hero, Frank Sinatra. All this and more can be found on the album entitled What Love Is.

Wisconsin native Erin Boheme was only 18 when she found herself recording for the house that Carl Jefferson built: Concord Jazz. Some people who heard WHAT LOVE IS, Boheme's debut album, questioned whether or not it belonged on a jazz-oriented label; truth be told, this 2006 release has as much to do with jazzy pop as it does with jazz. But even though Boheme is by no means a jazz purist, she is clearly jazz-influenced. So stylistically, this crossover effort (which is best described as traditional pop meets vocal jazz meets adult contemporary) isn't inappropriate for Concord. If Boheme is a crossover artist at heart, that's fine as long as she strives for quality--and this is a pleasant debut from the Midwestern singer. And even though her performances aren't breathtaking, Boheme shows herself to be a likable singer on an album that ranges from a few Tin Pan Alley war-horses (including Sammy Cahn's "Teach Me Tonight" and Cole Porter's "Let's Do It") to Tracy Chapman's "Give Me One Reason" to several tunes that Boheme co-wrote. This is by no means a bad album, although it is the work of an artist who still has some growing and developing to do. All things considered, Boheme is an artist worth keeping an eye on.
Professional Reviews
JazzTimes (p.137) - "[T]he best number on Boheme's 11-track debut is a self-pinned ditty called 'Don't Be Something You Ain't'....Unquestionably promising..."
Artist Bio
Erin BohemeFrank Sinatra and Erin Boheme's other childhood idols, Billie Holliday, Peggy Lee, Julie London, Bobby Darin, and Dean Martin, are no doubt smiling down, enjoying this instant classic and the other eleven tracks on this exciting new singer / songwriter?s album, What Love Is. Each song on the CD illustrates beautifully Boheme?s magical ability to bridge generations with an irresistible, emotionally compelling mix of old school swing, modern pop and fresh, new jazz. Following the lead of other charismatic young performers like vocalist Michael Buble and her Concord label mate, pianist/vocalist Peter Cincotti, the undeniably beautiful Boheme - determined to share beloved tunes from the Great American Songbook with young and old alike - brings a vibrant mix of innocence and sass to a timeless style, while incorporating the musical influences of her own generation.
