Product Description


Chris Isaak's Baja Sessions was inspired by a surfing trip the singer took with his band to the Baja California section of Mexico. As the salt in their hair dried in the sun, the four musicians sat around with acoustic guitars and a small drum set, and played some tunes from Isaak's previous albums, some of his unrecorded originals, and some of his favourite old songs by the likes of Roy Orbison, Gene Autry, and Arthur Lyman. The quartet so enjoyed the laid-back, mostly acoustic, Spanish-tinged flavour of these holiday jams that when they got home to the Bay Area, they recreated them in the studio. Baja Sessions is like an Unplugged album, except the sun-drenched, south-of-the-border mood gives these remakes a far fresher twist than most such projects. --Geoffrey Himes

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulously atmospheric, love it June 28 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I was drawn to buy this album for the track Sweet Leilani, my grand-daughter's name, but totally love the whole album

5.0 out of 5 stars You need this album at your cabin,or camping Nov. 18 2008
Format:Audio CD
Absolutely fantastic. Hard to believe this album is over 10 years old. I bought this for my brother for Christmas this year who has become a huge Jack Johnson fan, and recently went to Cancun and loved it. He'll be thrilled. Chris Isaak poured his heart into this, no ablum like it.

4.0 out of 5 stars What a voice! Jan. 15 2004
Format:Audio CD
Chris Isaak has one of the most beautiful voices in pop music. Here's a crooner who can really deliver, with a versatile instrument that can rise to powerful heights one minute, or sound as hushed as Chet Baker the next. He's also surrounded by just the right musicians and production values.
Highlights are "Yellow Bird" and a plaintive version of Orbison's "Only the Lonely," although I also like the more uptempo hit, "Dancin'" and oh all right -- pretty much everything else. Throughout, Isaak's voice is a joy, and if you are in the mood for his gentle tropics-influenced sound, you won't be disappointed.
The recorded sound is excellent -- with a slight reverb here and there -- and only adds to the relaxed, laid-back atmosphere. This is an ideal CD for a relaxing summer day, with or without a margarita.

3.0 out of 5 stars One of Chris Isaak's best work. . . Jan. 3 2004
Format:Audio CD
I'm not one of CHRIS ISAAK's biggest fan. I've only got one other CD of his - Blue. That being said, I did like this CD, but I'm still not a fan.
When I listen to this CD, I can imagine myself relaxing on a tropical beach. It's not an upbeat dance party CD. I wouldn't play it at a beach party or at a gathering of friends. It's more of a mood relaxing CD when I want to chill out.
I do have to compliment ISAAK on his rendition of "Sweet Leilani." My father was from Hawaii and this was one his favorite songs. He would play it constantly when I was growing up in the early '60s. It brought back memories of my father. ISAAK's rendition was exactly like the original. Who sang it originally, I have no clue.

2.0 out of 5 stars Keep your dignity (somewhat) intact Aug. 6 2003
Format:Audio CD
Two and one-half stars is more like it.
I'm writing this review on a steamy August day in Philadelphia. My wife and I are planning a BBQ. The guests will be musically unadventuresome. They will actually be aghast at my chillout and downtempo jazz CDs. I will be aghast (and nauseous) if forced to play their preferences: John Mayer, Nora Jones, Hootie and Hall-of-Fame bores Jimmy Buffet and James Taylor. Mayday! Hmm, Mr. Isaak steps into the breach with "Baja". Well, it looks like I do most of the compromising, but hey, welcome to holy matrimony. "Baja" is not that bad. Certainly better than the aforementioned "offenders". But honestly, no tune sticks in my head. Pure background music. Empty aural calories.
Question: Does David Lynch really dig this guy, or is he just clowning on ol' Chris (and us)?

4.0 out of 5 stars Forget Jimmy Buffett May 21 2003
Format:Audio CD
Forget Buffett. Mix yourself a big pitcher of margaritas and find yourself a hammock, back porch swing, lawn chair or whatever you have. Then, sit back and let the sounds of Baja Sessions carry you away to Southern California or any other paradise you're long overdue for. The Roy Orbison cover is worth the price of the CD alone.

5.0 out of 5 stars My favorite Chris Isaak album May 8 2003
Format:Audio CD
This is his best in my opinion. Its a little less contemporary than his others but the music is just perfect to listen to while you're doing something relaxing. A must have

4.0 out of 5 stars Baja Session April 28 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I heard part of the song while watching "Fools Rush In" I new instantly it was Chris Isaak because of the smooth calming effect of the song. I loved it, I couldn't wait to get online and hear it again.
