From the concept, the song selection, the arrangements, the instrumentalists and the artwork to the voice of Barbra herself, this project delivers what fans have come to expect from this great artist: an impeccable musical production.
Without knowing any of Barbra's personal details, even a first-time listener will easily surmise that she is a peaceful, happy, wise person who has sought and found true love and wants to share its wondrous message with others.
And because it's Barbra, the message is expressed as beautifully as any singer possibly could. If you're familiar with these songs at all, you'll be moved, as I was, by Barbra's ability to shine a new light on old material.
I've heard the song before, but never like this. The idea of presenting the songs in two formats, one with orchestra and one with small back-up combo, was brilliant. Both formats are equally good. Barbra can still "belt" when she wants to, and she occasionally lets it fly on this CD, but for the most part she prefers to croon. We've gotten used to the vocal meanderings of singers whose lack of training and technique forces them to distort vowels, change tone colors when they can't manage a note, yodel, breathe in the middle of a phrase, strain, scream and grandstand, and hope nobody will notice -- or will even admire them for it.
Want to know what really good singing sounds like? Let the Master demonstrate how it's done. To counteract this, I listen to the CD in sections, rather than all at once. Because of this lack of variety I've rated it 4 stars. Having said that, I'd like to underscore that if you're a fan of the American Songbook, you'll want to own this gorgeously sung and produced CD by one of America's all-time great musical treasures.
Thank you for your lifetime of musical service, Barbra. Thank you very much. When I heard that Barbra Streisand was finally making a jazz album I got really excited. It's not that Barbra doesn't sound great, it's just that the songs are extremely slow, almost maddeningly so.
You still hear the power and range in her voice and yet throughout the whole album, Streisand sounds like she's holding back. The music, though beautiful, is so soft and mellow that you feel as though you're in an opium den rather than a smoke-filled jazz nightclub.
There's some fire on two tracks "Love Dance" and "Smoke Gets In Your Eyes" but it's just a sliver of that inferno that made Barbra such a force in pop music. This album sounds too safe and lethargic. I'm a HUGE Barbra Streisand fan and so I'm not trying to be mean spirited or overly critical, but I was hoping for a little more pop and fire from Barbra's jazz album and not this.
