5.0 out of 5 stars For love of abbey November 7, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Many comparisions have been made over the years between Abbey Lincoln and Billie Holiday. At 73 years of age and a 50+ year carreer, Abbey lincoln does not stand in the shadow of the great lady day or any other great figure in musical history. Abbey lincoln is one of the most original artists ever to grace this planet we call earth. Her latest album "It's me" starts off with the best interpretation of "Skylark" that I have ever heard. The album ends with "Can you dig it", one of the hippest songs to come out this year, the eternally cool abbey lincoln has a way with language that is both poetic and ironic, she trusts her audience will "get it" and " dig it". anyone who has seen her live in recent years knows that her band is first rate and as usual they shine on this recording. From what I understand this is the last recording made under contract to verve records, I can only pray that Ms lincoln decides to record for many years to come. Her music is gospel to me, it feels like divine intervention to me, and I am a better man for having heard this songbird sing. If you are new to Ms lincolns work may I suggest: A turtles dream, Wholly earth, Over the years, and Gotta pay the band (with stan getz). If you are already familiar with ms. lincoln then "it's me" is a no risk buy. It is quite and understated and with each listen you will hear something new and her voice will sink deep into your bones and soothe your soul. This music will set your spirit free!!!! They call it Jazz, I prefer to just listen to the message it has, and I dig it !

4.0 out of 5 stars Buy it for 'Skylark' February 15, 2006
Format:Audio CD
I went to see Abbey at the Blue Note in NYC in November 2004 when this CD was released. Her first number was 'Skylark'. When she finished I was on my feet to give her the standing ovation she deserved. Her live rendition of this classic and it's recorded sibling on this CD are the most moving versions of this standard I've ever heard. From the first words, you know you are hearing something unique: she imbues 'Skylark' with life Hoagy Carmichael probably never imagined when he wrote it. Cassandra Wilson and Dianne Reeves, two singers I greatly respect, have both recorded this standard (Cassandra on 'Blue Skies' and Dianne on 'A Little Moonlight') but they had no idea what they were doing. Both express like teenagers hoping for a first crush. Abbey correcly relates the plaintive hopefulness of the lyrics: the heartbreaking final glimmer of faith of the critically disappointed.

Only Billie Holiday or Louis Armstrong could express the combination of grief and hope as Abbey has done with this landmark version of 'Skylark'. Anyone who doesn't recognize the importance of Abbey's performance can't hope to understand why Billie Holiday and Louis Armstrong are exalted as jazz's greatest singers, and will never be able to distinguish cabaret singers or merely talented jazz vocalists from icons.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Lady Knew Her Music October 30, 2010
Format:Audio CD
This is really a lovely album. The choice of tunes is extremely interesting. For a woman who was once promoted as the "Black Marilyn," to her her sing Runnin' Wild (from 'Some Like it Hot') is fascinating on several levels. I think "The Search" is just beautiful. Abbely carefully selected, and really understood her songs.

1.0 out of 5 stars Is it really? May 10, 2005
Format:Audio CD
The one star here is for ochestra arrangments and the musicians only--Abbey 's terrible voice deserves none! What will it take till she realizes that, at 73, she 's lost her voice and can't sing anymore? Didn't anyone listen to these recordings before releasing them? Abbey has made so many wonderful albums in the past and that 's how I would have liked to remember her...and then came this awful album... What was she thinking? First I thought perhaps she needed money, but, then again, how much is she going to make selling low-grade recordings like these? She has become one of those ageing stars who don't know when enough is enough, when to stop, when to retire...
