Clamoring for Fil-Am jazz singer

FIL-AM artist Charmaine Clamor is a rising jazz star in the United States, that critics can?t get enough of her.

LA Weekly?s Brick Wahl, for one, recommended her recent two-night gig at Hollywood?s Catalina Bar & Grill as his jazz event pick of the week this way: ?She made a big splash with Flippin? Out -- its hip mix of beautifully arranged standards and jazzed-up Tagalog love songs took the ?Filipina Singing Sensation? into the upper reaches of the jazz and world charts. And no wonder:

Her husky, sassy tone, languid moves and unpretentious Pinoy attitude that?s just a tad rebellious have the kind of natural appeal you can?t buy at any music school.?

This acclaim is typical of the critical plaudits that Charmaine, who grew in Zambales, has been getting since she released her first CD. ?Her debut album, Searching for the Soul, announced the arrival of an impressive new vocal artist,? raved Don Heckman of the LA Times.

Striking while the iron is hot, Charmaine will simultaneously release two CDs later this year -- one, an album of harana (serenades) songs, and the other, a follow-up to the very successful Flippin? Out (available on charmaineclamor.com) showcasing jazzipino, her hybrid of jazz and Filipino music and lyrics. The concurrent release of these albums will make Charmaine the first Filipino artist to have two recordings climb the American charts at the same time.
