Barlow says “I am excited to do something a little different on this album. Something that is a bit of a departure from my last few recordings.
In the past I gravitated toward songs of the 30’s and 40’s, inspired by the musical treasure trove of The American Songbook. In seeking out repertoire for a new project, I became fascinated by that vibrant decade of diversity, change and of course music – the 60’s!
After much inspiring and entertaining listening, I have simply chosen songs that hit me. Songs that I connect to in some way, melodies that would run around in my head on ‘repeat’. The idea here was to deconstruct these songs and rebuild them in my own style – perhaps in the form of a reharmonization, a bass line, or a different groove.”

The Whole Note
On The Beat Goes On, Emilie-Claire Barlow has focused her considerable talents and Jazz sensibilities on the music of the ’60s.
Barlow has written all the arrangements herself and the stripped down instrumentation that predominates fits her light, pretty voice like a Pucci print dress.
We feel transported to a Yorkville coffeehouse.
