Originally released on Les Disques du Crépuscule in November 1992, Carpe Diem was recorded with guest musicians including Marco De Meersman (drums) and Fritz Sundermann (guitar) at Studio Caraibes in Brussels. The prevailing vibe is cool jazz, latin and bossa, and complements perfectly Isabelle's warm voice and soft, sensual lyrics.
All twelve tracks on Carpe Diem were produced by Isabelle and represent a personal affirmation of life and music, following the tragic death of her husband and musical partner Dirk Schoufs (of Vaya Con Dios). The song Corto Prend le Large is a heartfelt tribute to Dirk.
The 66 minute remaster also includes all 10 tracks from her previous album, Les Derniers Guerriers Romantiques, recorded in 1991 by Isabelle with Dirk and a team of crack jazz and bossa musicians.
