Soesia Citroen: Songs for Lovers and Losers

Soesja Citroen is a Dutch-Slovenian vocalist whose earthy richness is perfect for American torch songs. She’s absolutely sensational on her 11th album, singing “Lush Life,” “Alone Together,” “Love for Sale” and “Angel Eyes.” The Netherlands issue is a drumless setting with pianist Louis van Dijk and bassist Hein Van de Geyn, adding Ack van Rooyen on flugelhorn for three of the 14 tracks. Remember her name (say it “Shoo-sha See-troon”) and hope she arrives on our side of the Atlantic very soon.
