Three years after the release of her successful Essentials II, Jazz diva Karen Souza released her fourth studio album. Velvet Vault is the title of a collection that combine jazz standards with jazz reworks of pop classics plus two songs co-written by Karen herself. Japan’s superstar Toku duets with Karen on the track You Got That Something. Also part of the album are Robin Banerjee (Amy Winehouse guitarist) and legendary Tom ‘Bones’ Malone (Blues Brothers, Saturday Night Live Band). Vocals has been recorded in New York at The Orchard studios and produced by Richard Gottehrer (of Blondie, Richard Hell and Dr. Feelgood fame). Velvet Vault is without a doubt, Karen Souza’s most accomplished record to date and will definitely surpass the success of her previous efforts.
