Emmy Rossum Sentimental Journey Released! #SentimentalJourney

If you don't know who Emmy Rossum is, you might want to check her out.  She is an American actress/singer/songwriter who has starred in many movies, including Mystic River, The Day After Tomorrow and The Phantom of the Opera.  She currently stars in the Showtime series Shameless.

Just released this week is her Sentimental Journey album.  This album contains a collection of covers of classic songs from the 1920s to the 1950s and is a mix of classics and jazz.  According to Rossum, the album is a calendar with a song for each month of the year.

This is really a nice album.  I enjoyed listening to the songs--it has just an easy, relaxed feel.  I think the first song, with the same name as the album, sets the tone for the entire album--Sentimental Journey.  It definitely feels like a journey through the year with her.  She has an amazing voice that just draws you in.

Here is the track listing:

  1. “Sentimental Journey” (Les Brown, Ben Homer, Arthur Green)
  2. “The Object Of My Affection” (Pinky Tomlin)
  3. “I’m Looking Over A Four Leaf Clover “(Mort Dixon, Harry M. Woods)
  4. “These Foolish Things (Remind Me Of You)” (Eric Maschwitz, Jack Strachey)
  5. “(I’ll Be With You) In Apple Blossom Time” (Albert Von Tilzer, Neville Fleeson)
  6. “Summer Wind” (Heinz Meier, Johnny Mercer)
  7. “Many Tears Ago” (Winfield Scott)
  8. “All I Do Is Dream Of You” (Nacio Herb Brown, Arthur Freed)
  9. “Nobody Knows You When You’re Down And Out” (Jimmy Cox)
  10. “Autumn Leaves” (Joseph Kosma, Jacques PrĂ©vert)
  11. “Things” (Bobby Darin)
  12. “Pretty Paper” (Willie Nelson)
