ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"I feel as if I've stumbled into the last bar open at 3am in a dark alley in New Orleans. What a great moody performance by one of my favorite artists!"
--Derek Sivers, CD Baby

"There are two reasons why you want to become a Yes Man when it comes to Bernadette Seacrest. One reason may be her piercing eyes and her heavily tattooted body that tells you not to mess with Bernadette - and which by the way is a welcome change from all the clean pseudo jazz divas major labels wants to shove down your throat (although I’m sure she’s one of the nicest person you could meet...someone who sings like Bernadette can’t be bad after all). The second reason is that Bernadette simply knows how to handle a sultry jazzy torch song. In a way Bernadette is a modern Julie London with a punk attitude and a rawer sound. One listen to this live album and you feel beamed into in a small smoky late-night joint with a big glass of booze and the band and singer making music just for the fun of it."
--Jazz Not Jazz

"Not since the heyday of Austin's 8 1/2 Souvenirs has torch jazz sounded as authentic as it does delivered courtesy of Bernadette Seacrest's formidable set of pipes atop the torrid haze served up by her Yes Men."
--The Weekly Alibi

"Hailing from Albuquerque, Seacrest is a refreshing departure from the squeaky-clean jazz-tootsie camp Jane Monheit and Nellie McKay. Just hitting the 40 mark, this heavily tattooed former punk adds a playful Barbara Stanwyk, here-comes-trouble feel to the torch-singing chanteuse formula."
--Tim Durche • Willamette Week | Portland, OR

"....Her blunt-cut bangs and vintage sleeve-tattoos make her look more like a Suicide Girl than a run-of-the-mill chanteuse, but her girlish voice recalls the sweet pain of a young Billie Holiday."
--San Francisco Chronicle

"Whichever ghastly gent did sultry songstress Bernadette Seacrest wrong has surely got a beatin' a-comin' to him, either by us or by someone else out to avenge the honor of the bluesy and ballsy siren. Whenever this tattooed temptress sings tempestuous torch songs about lovers who "couldn't keep the faith," or croons classic covers like Mama Cass' "Dream a Little Dream of Me," this quirky Albuquerque chanteuse makes us want to do wild things...."
--Phoenix New Times

"Nob Hill Singer is Unforgettable.....Her sultry, silky voice spreads across the room like a lush, warm blanket of velevet...."
--The Albuquerque Journal

"Seacrest is a vision from the 40's, a classic beauty with a contemporary twist. Her voice comes at you like Billie Holiday on a train that started in the pre-civil rights South and alighted in the 21st-century Southwest."
--Albuquerque the Magazine

"Many modern day jazz musicians claim to have done their homework, learning from the classic standards and may succeed at making a passing grade however, Bernadette Seacrest has truly arrived at today's modern jazz scene via time-capsule.... Conventional jazz from a most unconventional bombshell!"
--Swing City Magazine

It'll take you to Hell!
Cool jazzy music with a sensual voice and a touch of darkness. If you ever thought the devil has a face and some cadence... this live recording is the right place to find out. It'll take you to Hell!


Now I love my jazz (my father played jazz bass), so I believe I know a thing or two about the genre. As regards the music of Bernadette Seacrest (what a name) I have to say - that it's perfect hip music for the sophisticated barfly and after hours drinkers. Her voice is sexy sultry and her timing is impeccable.

Thumbs up! My favourite discovery.

What can you say when something is so awesome that you walk out of other band's shows humming the songs from this album. That's seriously what's happening to me. The Yes Men, as a backing trio, are so smooth I'm sure they're being studied by various alcohol and tobacco companies for they're secret formula. As far as Bernadette, she's not only an amazing vocal talent but a unique one, sounding just as comfortable in seduction as in wrath. The whole affair makes me want to drink heavily and snap my fingers till I break them.

Smoke, Whiskey & Jazz......Shmooooooth.
I love it.
A fantastic live album, well produced, I can almost taste the whiskey, and smell the cigarettes I imagine were part of this classy little gig.

Sultry slinky siren soothes and stimulates the soul
The songs and riffs in this live recording take you down into the deepest bowels of human pain and angst. But just as you feel the darkness will suck you into the abyss, they mercifully take on a joy ride to the top of the mountain and dazzle your soul with their musical brilliance. I felt like I needed a scotch and a cigar after my first listen.

No matter where you really are, it's always midnight in a smoky cafe when you listen to Bernadette Seacrest. Her voice is mesmerizing.
