ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
'Lucky Star', blends reinterpreted classics with vintage-inspired originals, with an all-star line-up of musical talent. In the mix tunes inspired by Django Reinhardt and Hot Club de France, T-Bone Walker, jazz swing, and our country and folk favourites.

Featuring Daphne Roubini's captivating vocals that have been paired with the talents of stellar musicians including
Chris Davis, (Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings), Paul Pigat (Cousin Harley), Stephen Nikleva and Jimmy Roy (Ray Condo and the Ricochets and Petunia and the Vipers), Cameron Wilson and Brent Gubbels (VanDjango), and Patrick Metzger (Headwater, Viper Central), and Andrew Smith of Ruby & Smith. " Lucky Star" is the perfect musical cocktail. I’ll have mine vintage with a twist!

Praise for Black Gardenia and 'Lucky Star'
“Roubini has a lovely Jo Stafford-esque set of pipes…makes you want a good cocktail, an intimate cabaret and a tux. Classy sounding stuff”. Calgary Herald

“Daphne Roubini's original tunes bring to mind Django Reinhardt’s Gypsy Jazz with Billie Holiday as vocalist.” Vancouver Sun

" Here we find what it would have sounded like if prime Billie Holiday hooked up with the Hot Club for a one off that wound up setting the sky on fire. An utterly smoking journey through a past that never was, this is how you polish a stone into a gem. Killer stuff throughout." Chris Spector - Midwest Record

“This Jazz/country/folk/blues band filter everything they do through their own special musical time capsule.” North Shore News

"Old timey band Black Gardenia... can sound like Dan Hicks and His Hot Licks backing up Billie Holiday when they want to"
The Westender

"Blissful rendering of gypsy jazz, folk, blues and the great vocals standards of by-gone days. Recommended if you like Billie Holiday and Django Rheinhardt" MD KBUT Radio
