Editorial Reviews

Singer and actress Tara Hugo reimagines and reinterprets the Philip Glass songbook on Orange Mountain's recording Tara Hugo Sings Philip Glass. Glass is mostly known for his large-scale operas and symphonies. However, his long-time producer Kurt Munkacsi had harbored a desire to hear the Glass songs in the context of a collection interpreted by singer who concentrates on communicating lyrics through her singing. This set of songs also presents pieces that the composer wrote at different times of his career for different projects with different collaborators including Natalie Merchant, Allen Ginsberg, Leonard Cohen and Mick Jagger. It also includes beautiful melodies written by Glass, arranged for small ensemble by Trevor Gureckis and set to lyrics written by Hugo.

The phrasing, the power of her voice, and the pacing make it a great listen.

This is a great album. Hard to classify the genre which makes it all the more wonderful. Uniquely beautiful music, best of Glass -- sung by Tara Hugo, whose strong voice is soulful and pure. Each song is compelling to listen to, again and again. It's not cabaret, classical or any other genre-- it's of itself. Hugo's lyrics are fantastic!

Amazingly good! Be sure to read the detailed review by Steven Ritter on Audiophile Audition's website. I was especially surprised by "Feeding Frenzy" whose music is from "Primacy of Number" on the Naqoyqatsi soundtrack- never would have imagined words added to that piece! A lot of time and effort was put into this project, and it shows!

Philip Glass is widely recognized as one of the most influential composers of the late 20th century. In this unique album, his music has been turned into a collection of songs, performed by one of the best cabaret singers around, Tara Hugo. Ms. Hugo, an American who lives in London and New York, not only sings the hell out of this material but is also responsible for many of the lyrics, more than holding her own with fellow lyricists, Leonard Cohen and Rumi. Provocative and deeply moving.

Have always loved Philip Glass' music, and Tera Hugo's cd is wonderful. The phrasing, the power of her voice, and the pacing make it a great listen. I've ordered several for Christmas gifts.

It has been years since I listened to something that excited me so! The fact that Ms. Hugo is also a more-than-competent lyricist makes this a fascinating blend of exquisite power.

Tara is to be congratulated on barging to bear some of her myriad of gifts; her marvelous vocal style, the ability to interpret and incorporate the composer's intent and to blend these amazing assets into an incredible potpourri of sound.
Speaking as a Music Therapist, she has blown me away!

Brava, Tara!
