All right, I'll start by admitting I've had it bad for Jane Krakowski (see, Jane, some folks CAN spell your last name) ever since I first saw her on the Ally McBeal TV show more than a decade ago...and when she opened her mouth to sing, my bottom jaw fell to the floor...all the looks, and a set of pipes to match! Her recordings (Ally McBeal soundtracks, cast albums) have all been quite listenable, and I've been hoping for a full album that would showcase her talents in a way that would bring her even more fame and fortune.

This, however, is not that album. Please don't misunderstand me--it's a fine piece of work, and it gives the lovely lady the chance to shine as few performers can. Her amazing talent, her sense of humor, her fabulous voice, and her rapport with her audience are, to a greater or lesser degree, all on display here, and there is very, very little that could make this album better as a recording of a cabaret performance. On that level alone, it is the equivalent--nay, the equal--of "Noel Coward in Las Vegas," Blossom Dearie's "Blossom Time at Ronnie Scott's," or any of the fine Mabel Mercer or Alberta Hunter videos of a couple of decades back. Bravo, Jane...you've got it and you're putting it out there for all to hear.

But this album, peppered with plenty of 2010 jokes, a rap, references to even more pop culture than I can decipher, and double-entendre as well, is lacking in much that would prove that the amazing Jane is much more than just a Martha Wright or a Katie Lee for the current century...and even their albums (along with the aforementioned cabaret recordings) had their moments of poignancy and depth.

The long awaited solo CD from Jane Krakowski is now available and a must have for every collection. Although I admit I was a bit disappointed that her debut solo CD is a live recording, one listen through this tremendous collection left this listener wanting more.
Jane has a outstanding voice and it is well showcased on this unique and lively collection of songs; "Thirteen Men" updates the Ann-Margret standard of the sixties, "Diamonds Are A Best Girls Friend" would make Carol Channing smile and Krakowski's version of the Eartha Kitt gem "Old Fashioned Girl" are just three big reasons to love this CD.
As a bonus the CD is synched so that you can skip over Jane's adorable banter with the audience which is featured between songs.
This is the CD of the summer, the fall or any season.

Jane Krakowski has it all--brains, talent, beauty--a perfect package. She is an entertainer who does just that-entertains. This CD is pure fun from start to finish. She is in very good voice, has a breezy and gifted talent for making an audience want more.

The numbers that have been chosen are really interesting, going from classics to different eras to a very clever update of Rodgers & Hart's Zip, here called Tweet. She does several Eartha Kitt tunes and does them well, not trying to imitate the great Kitt. She also does a down and dirty blues number called My Handy Man and puts a new spin on it. Ruth Brown was more down and dirty in her rendition, but Miss Krakowski is fine.

The chatter between numbers comes off well and she seems to enjoy her audience and they her. She is very classy in her cabaret debut and thanks to DRG for recording it for all to enjoy.

I was lucky to have seen the lady in her Tony winning performance in Nine several years back. She was riviting and nearly stole the show away from the fabulous Chita Rivera and Antonio Banderas, who both were excellent.

Here's hoping for more recordings of the cool, classy Miss K.

I have never been a fan of cabaret as a genre. The constant rubato as opposed to keeping time just put me off. Not everything is a torch song. This record is exactly the opposite of that! It is refreshing, fun and well done. While working the crowd with bits of pop culture, unique interpretations (She raps convincingly ion `Diamonds are a Girl's Best Friend') and clever patter she puts forward a strong and capable vocal performance. For crying out loud the girl did win a Tony award and all sorts of other awards for her singing in Broadway musicals.

The repertoire are all standards, the lyrics are all clear and understandable. Her pitch is remarkable. Her phrasing is well thought out. Producer Hugh Fordin has one a few Grammy awards and has delivered an excellent snap shot of this series of dates.

If you are a fan of standards, Broadway, Cabaret or Miss Krakowski I recommend this record to you.

I found this title by chance when searching for other broadway and cabaret cd's. Jane Krakowski is a favourite TV actess of mine for Ally McBeal days and I knew she was a broadway performer as well. The setting for this live performance suits Janes style and, with an accomplished band backing her up, Jane interprets the songs in her own way, with great aplomb. This disc is fast becoming a favourite of mine, right up there with Bernadette Peters and Kristen Chenowyth.
