Editorial Reviews

Barbara's debut self-titled album is seductively fresh and charmingly spicy. Going solo after her stint with cult faves Pepe & the Bottle Blondes, Lusch's magnificent voice floats above the rhythm-fueled, classy arrangements, and you sense she is almost.Blush Records.2004.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fine wine in a new bottle December 26, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Barbara Lusch descibes her style as fine wine in a new bottle. This self-titled first album is not another American songbook cover album. You won't get eight bars into track one without realizing this is the real deal, and she'll leave you begging for the next album.

Barbara's mature and controlled voice brings a well-crafted huskiness and melodic range bring a rare mix to the fore. No offense, Renee Olstead, but it takes a lot more than marketing and 15 yrs on this earth to sing out your heart. Ms. Lusch has been there and done that, and we profit from her breadth of experience.

Her cover of Rosemary Clooney's "C'mon A My House" is outplaying the Divine Miss M's version on syndicated adult radio nationwide. Neither Rosemary or Bette made "I'm gonna give you..pomegrante" sound like something you would cross broken glass barefoot to obtain.

The cut "Girl Talk" ought to attract Tony Bennett for a duet of his 1966 version. Barbara spins this one out like a velvet rope.

"Nature Boy" is an enigmatic ballad that Nat King Cole reportedly avoided recording until the songwiter wore him down. A Gibran/Flower Child sort of a story that is made even more haunting with Barbara's fluid stylings.

A couple of tracks, "Now Baby or Never" and "Every Night" include some backup vocals that evoke the portion of a night-club set when the band members stand up for a little feedback to the front girl.

The morose "Black Coffee" makes the listener want to either end her delicious sadness or let her go and see how deep her blues will plunge.

"I Love the Way you're Breaking My Heart" has a hook that can't be described. Suffice to say it's so terribly,terribly,terribly silky it might make you a bit misty.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Knockout CD From Start To Finish! February 5, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Just when you think the crowded female vocalist category has reached the point of no return, along comes the fantastic voice of Barbara Lusch! This talented lady's self titled debut CD is a real revelation. Her sultry jazz take on "Come On- A My House", as well as super versions of "Girl Talk", "Ain't Doin' Bad Doin' Nothin'" and "Light My Fire" among others, make this first release a knockout from start to finish. Barbara Lusch deserves to be heard by anyone who digs great jazz singers! Order this CD right away and I guarantee that by the time you reach the third or fourth track, you'll be a new Barbara Lusch fan!

4.0 out of 5 stars A Very Nice Debut! March 3, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
First off, this is a very strong 4 star rating. It's always nice to "discover" a new jazz voice.I was not aware of Barbara until recently when I heard her singing "Nature Boy" from this CD on a cable TV music channel. I bought the CD immediately and was not disappointed--and I still feel that her Latin-rhythm version of "Nature Boy" is outstanding. My personal favorite on the CD. Barbara offers up a very diversified repertoire--as previous reviewers have mentioned--and pretty much hits the mark on them all, offering some surprises (style-wise) on several--"Light My Fire" in particular. I must confess that as a saxophone player there were several cuts that seemed to beg for a tenor (or flute) solo, but that's just personal taste. The rhythm section is excellent throughout, playing in a variety of styles with excellent musical taste.
