I saw Holly on Canadian TV and had to get this CD as soon as I found it. She and her trio partners breathe new life into songs you'd never expect to be so rich. After all, the dark, sinister song that begins this album was originally from Disney's saccharine "Jungle Book" movie, and "If I Were A Bell" rocks a whole lot harder than your local playhouse production of "Guys & Dolls".

Before Holly turned her interpretative skills to material by Tom Waits, Joni Mitchell, and the Beatles, the Holly Cole Trio (with David Piltch on bass and Aaron Davis on piano) performed mostly standards, but performing classics didn't stop their knack for turning songs inside out. Oldies like "If I Were a Bell" and "Honeysuckle Rose" get irresistibly swinging arrangements with a delightfully unorthodox fiddle, "Smile" is given a stark pop edge, and "Trust in Me," from "The Jungle Book," is given a bossa-nova-inspired treatment. Holly's gift for pop vocals are used to perfection on "Calling You," now one of her signature tunes, and Tom Waits contributed a new composition, the lush and jazzy "Purple Avenue." The strongest moment? Holly turns the sweet "The Street Where You Live" from "My Fair Lady" into a dark and haunting narrative (Holly has said in interviews that this song always seemed to her like the story of a stalker). The unique intro and always flawless vocal inspires chills with every listen. The weakest moment? Well, it depends on your mood, but the ultra-slow arrangement and drunken slurr of a vocal on "I'll Be Seeing You" can occasionally be a difficult listen. It's a small price to pay, however, on a collection as original and polished as this.

I really like Holly Cole: got hooked on Don't Smoke in Bed, like the rest of her stuff too. Very different phrasing than I am used to, surprising, but well done and often more apt for a completely different view of the song. Buy one, you'll buy them all. back up is great. oh, good voice, too.

I am not an experienced listener of jazz music. However, I do know what I like. Holly Cole has a beautiful, throaty alto/tenor voice. The songs show character, but still let you remember what they were really like at their beginning. Sometimes the music does seem to be trying too hard to be "different", but it all manages to blend. If you a new spin on some old standrards, this album is great!!!

Holly Cole's "Blame it on my Youth", is the perfect introduction to not only a great genre (Canadian Jazz) but to an even greater artist. Holly's version of "Trust in me" would put any snake under her spell (refer to the Jungle book)!! This album is a must have for all Holly Cole fans!!

I first heard of Holly Cole on a CBC special about her. I was in the other room and drawn into the family room. Once I heard her I was hookded. From there I went on a crusade to find her tapes.
After much looking, I found this one and I was not disappointed. I have played it over and over.
Now that I have bought a CD player, this is one of the recordings that I will search for.
This alblum, along with her others is just wonderful. She is truley an undiscovered talent here in the US.

My favorite Holly Cole recording. Her interesting phrasing and choice of compositions make this a wonderful surprise every time you listen. An excellent mix of pop and jazz.

Purchased this a while back and have since purchased another of her cd's. This is one of my all time favorite female vocal jazz cd's (probably my favorite). The tunes show a range of emotions from sassy to nostalgic, to emotionally gripping to spiritual and have actually done a great job of keeping me company both at home as well as on unaccompanied trips to the great outdoors. The instrumentation blends perfectly with the melodies and demonstrates the standard to which these musicians perform. I would recommend this music to anyone as it lives up up the high standards to which jazz music is regarded. Robert Pear , Salt Lake City.
