Emmy Rossum Sentimental Journey Review #SentimentalJourney


I was excited when I heard about an opportunity to check out and review Emmy Rossum's new album with a release date of Tuesday, January 29.  I enjoy seeing Emmy Rossum on the HBO series Shameless with William H. Macy. It was kind of exciting to know she was so multi-talented. 

Sentimental Journey is a collection of Emmy's passion for the classics.  These are songs which she has connected with and then collaborated matching one song for each month of the year.  I really enjoyed Summer Wind for the month of June and Nobody Knows You (When You're Down and Out) for the month of September.  They were both so different but resonated with me.  Summer Wind made me think about high school boyfriends and beach weather.  Everyone has different moods depending on the day you are having or the chilly weather.  It was a novel idea to set up her album that way and it seemed to fall in place for me as I listened to it.

Emmy has a way that makes all these songs work together. You can almost hear the seasons change from warm to cool.

These are all the album tracks:

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

I can't wait to catch Emmy on Conan on January 28, Chelsea Lately on January 29 and
The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson on February 6th.

You can take a listen for yourself too!

Sentimental Journey is available through Amazon and Itunes.  You can follow Emmy Rossum on Twitter, or check her out on her TV show Shameless, or see her in the upcoming movie Beautiful Creatures.  Also, look for her in upcoming appearances on Access Hollywood Live, Conan (January 28), Chelsea Lately (January 29) and The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson!
