"Vision of Love CD review"

Ms. Capdeville skillfully blends usual elements and emerges with something more. She has a rich, distinctive voice and a quirky original approach to lyrics (…) Vision of Love is a romantic journey and thus it both reflects imagined longings and very real responses to the world. Capdeville is composer of some skills with ears and heart open to many textures.

"Vision of Love review 2"

"Well, if Bebel Gilberto was a Frenchy that had musical bloodlines without the infused royalty, you would get Capdeville. A vocalist/songwriter with a deep love of all kinds of jazz, this debut finds her taking the listener around the horn of her interests and talents. Not quite a cabaret set, it does have that foreigner view of jazz that combines wistfulness and passion into a stew that suckers in the gringos every time. A most impressive first step and it certainly aint no baby step". (La Cigale) Chris Spector, Midwest Record - Midwest Record, Chris Spector

Bio

Born and raised in France, and a 15-year resident of New York City, Capdeville is already a composer and singer to be reckoned with. "My goal with this first recording project was to weave together a jazz tapestry of various music genres and create a coherent journey for the listener to enjoy," she says. "The album is a tribute to all the jazz forms that I have studied and listened to and that have been my strongest influences: From acid jazz in my teen years, to Afro-Cuban jazz, Brazilian music, and last but not least American jazz. However, I don't consider myself an expert in any of these forms. I love to sing traditional jazz standards and improvise on them but I don't see myself as a traditional jazz vocalist. Neither am I a salsera or an artist doing traditional Brazilian music. I think my strength as an artist is that I am able to work with all these genres and create a unique form of music and expression.
