Isabelle Antena | Carpe Diem bis

Remastered, expanded CD reissue of the classic 1992 album by Isabelle Antena, the acclaimed easy and electro-samba pioneer from Paris. Originally released on Les Disques du Crepuscule in November 1992 (in Japan and France only), Carpe Diem was recorded with musicians including Marco De Meersman (drums) and Fritz Sundermann (guitar) at Studio Caraibes in Brussels. Isabelle produced the album herself, which has rightly come to be regarded as a milestone. The vibe is chiefly cool jazz, latin and bossa, and complements perfectly Isabelle's warm voice and soft, sensual lyrics, never more so than on Corto Prend Le Large and E Preciso Perdoar.
The 12 tracks on Carpe Diem represent Isabelle's personal affirmation of life and music, following the tragic death of her husband and musical partner Dirk Schoufs (previously with Vaya Con Dios). The song Corto Prend Le Large stands as a particularly heartfelt tribute to Dirk.
The 66 minute CD also includes all 10 tracks from her previous album, Les Derniers Guerriers Romantiques, released in April 1991, and recorded by Isabelle with Dirk Schoufs and a crack team of crack jazz and bossa musicians.
