Editorial Reviews

In celebration of Barbara Cook's most recent Kennedy Center Honor as well as her soon-to-be 85th birthday Carnegie Hall celebration on October 25th, DRG has produced and releasing a brand new, never before recorded album of her latest catalog of songs. Recorded at the famed Avatar Studios in New York, this jazz styled album (a first for Barbara) brings a totally exciting dimension to this legendary performer's career. Backed by Musical Director-arranger-pianist Ted Rosenthal, the quartet made of up Jay Leonhart, Warren Odz, and Lawrence Feldman. It should be of no surprise that Barbara takes us on a great ride with new batch of songs both familiar and rare.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Perfection September 30, 2012
Format:Audio CD
I think I have everything Barbara has recorded and I can't believe that I am saying this, but I think this is by far her BEST CD. Every song is so perfectly delivered and perfect for her voice. Even at her age (sorry to mention this), but her voice is still superb and better than most singers these days. Buy this, you will love it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Was almost dispapointed October 3, 2012
Format:MP3 Music
When I heard the first track, "Let's Fall in Love," I was initially disappointed. For the first time Barbara Cook's beautiful soprano sounded tired and...dare I say it...showing her age. However, the rest of the tracks of this lush and beautiful album made up for it.

The songs run a greater gamut than most Barbara Cook albums these days. There are slow and luxurious numbers, fun and sprightly numbers, and everything in between. She even shows once or twice that Barbara still has her top notes.

A must have fan for any Barbara Cook fan and recommended listening for anyone interested in the American songbook.

Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Magical moments enjoying Barbara Cook over the years have been high on the list of greatest musical pleasures & experiences...mid-eighties Westwood Playhouse performance had a gorgeous Elizabeth Taylor with wonder couple Sammy & Altovise Davis Jr. seated in front of me, what a fantastic once in a lifetime memorable experience...every earthy glorious performance in "Loverman" takes me back to amazing times that will never happen again...peak form as always, music lovers get ready to enjoy this national treasure in a splendid collection that is one to be enjoyed over and over...magnificent timeless voice in this intimate jazzy & torchy collection will please those who enjoy a tremendous talent whose soulful voice is Dom Perignon of music...Bravo Barbara Cook, this is sublime!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Barbara Cook continues to expand her style! August 24, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
At 85, Cook still continue to expand her vocal offerings. This disc has a more jazz/blues theme. It's great to hear these.
"Lover man" is great and moving

5.0 out of 5 stars Cook's Still Cookin" July 22, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
After all these years, the burnished,, gleaming sounds that emit from Barbara Cook are still thrilling. The amount of care and love she gives to her musical choices eaily explains her fabulous longesvity and her gift that keeps on giving. Thanks for maintaing a living library, Ms. Cook, and reminding us that great art only endures when it is appreciated. If it were up to me, your endurance will remain eternal.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than ever April 18, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Amazingly, she sounds better and better. One of the greatest voices - and most sensitive interpreters of the American songbook - is at her peak, in her mid-80s.

Barbara Cook is in a class by herself! There just is no one like her. The clarity! She sings the lyrics! Her pitch is always perfect.
She just gets better and better.

Sorry, but as much as I do love Barbara Cook's singing and voice, the song selection on this cd is boring.

An excellent artist. I heard her in a joint concert at Boston Symphony Hall which prompted me to purchase her CD.
