Product Description

Amazon.com

Vocalist Janis Siegel is a member of the world-famous Manhattan Transfer, but she has also released several satisfying records as a solo artist. This CD features Siegel paying tribute to the New York hit-making institution of the '50s and '60s known as the Brill Building, and to female singers. A topflight band accompanies Siegel, including pianist Cedar Walton, tenor saxophonist-flutist David "Fathead" Newman, and trumpeter Tom Harrell. The singer and her soulfully syncopated crew work their magic by recasting tunes such as the Barry Mann-Cynthia Weil gem, "Just a Little Lovin'," and Toni Fisher's "The Big Hurt." Siegel's sophisticated and sensitive vocals also give justice to Dakota Staton's "The Late, Late Show," Etta Jones's "Don't Go to Strangers," and Nancy Wilson's "(I'm Afraid) The Masquerade Is Over." Throughout this project, Siegel unveils her own distinctive voice in a number of genres from mainstream swing and ballads to doo-wop. --Eugene Holley Jr.

Janis Siegel has delivered her best solo album to date. It is a synthesis of everything she has learned as a solo singer, and as a member of The Manhattan Transfer. Here she shines with her own identity as never before. Whether playful or sardonic or sensual or heartbreaking, her singing and interpretations are always emotionally connected with the material, and the stellar musical accompaniment is a nearly perfect compliment. The material, which ranges from the familiar to the unexpected, is always sublime with highlights being a stunning reading of "Go Away Little Boy," the wistful ballad rendition of "Mr. Sandman" interpolated with "Dream a Little Dream of Me," the swinging "I Want You To Be My Baby" and an ironic "The Big Hurt." If one needs proof of Siegel's growth as a singer, just listen to her revisiting of "Guess Who I Saw Today?" which she initially recorded on her first solo album "Experiment in White" back in 1981, produced then and now by Joel Dorn. What was then a fine version sung by a singer with great musical instinct, has now turned into an intimate character monologue sung by a great singer who is also an actress. Accompanied just by Cedar Walton on piano, she nails the song as you've never heard it, and it is possibly the definitive version by any artist. Siegel has delivered terrific albums in the past, but this heralds the promise of even greater things to come. In the meantime, savor this album which is certain to rank as one of the best female jazz/pop vocal records of the year.

This is an excellent album by a singer who only gets better with time. Her last solo album, "The Tender Trap," was good, but this effort sounds much more spontaneous - even with the frequent and well-choreographed use of overdubbed backup vocals (which only seem to necessary on "I Want You To Be My Baby") Top cuts are the aforementioned tune, "Just A Little Lovin'" (excellent scatting), a lovely "Go Away Little Boy" and the title tune.
Siegel's next solo effort "Friday Night Special", due out on April 22, 2003, again teams her with producer, Joel Dorn, and given their track record, promises to be another winner.
SIDE NOTE: Janis isn't the only member of THE MANHATTAN TRANSFER, flying solo these days. The group's cool soprano, Cheryl Bentyne, also has an excellent album on the market. Entitled, TALK OF THE TOWN, this CD can currently be purchased as a Japanese import here on Amazon.com. However, it will be released in the US (at a cheaper price) sometime later this year. Check it out.

Many many years ago, I heard Janis perform Guess Who I Saw today as part of a solo performance within a Manhattan Transfer concert. The song has haunted me for years and I have longed to find it on one of Janis' solo works. Along comes the incredible I Wish You Love and with it, the dramatic and poignant Guess Who I Saw Today.
This gem is part of a box of precious performances by one of the classiest and most gifted female vocalists ever. Janis' versatility, expansive musical exploration and rich talent carry this new CD to the highest of heights. The new flavour given to these classic delicacies is rich and rewarding with every play - and you'll be playing it over and over - just hit the repeat button.
Thank you Janis for decades of incredible music. Thank you too for re-kindling the joy of hearing such wonderful musical treasures as I Wish You Love, Just a Little Lovin and Go Away Little Boy. Thank you for always reminding us of the best of our musical history. You, and this new CD, are in a class all alone.

What can you say about Janis Siegel...her style plops right down in between Jazz and Cabaret. What I like so much on this disc is that she has discovered several songs that are not well known...and have introduced them in her usual classy way. Her re-recording of "Guess Who I Saw Today" (Originally recorded on the out-of-print title "Experiment in White")is beautiful. Janis has jumped from label to label to label...but is always worth listening to at any time.

Simply put this is another great cd by Janis Siegel. I am a big fan of Manhattan Transfer and always felt that Janis was the major vocal force behind the group. This cd proves my point. Her voice is in perfect form. This is a great cd for a quiet night of music during dinner or relaxing with friends or someone very special. Buy it now you will not be dissapointed.

I remember the days when Down Beat rated the best woman singer in the business as Annie Ross--who was an ensemble singer (Lambert, Hendricks & Ross). Now, along comes Janis Siegel, taking a solo break from the Manhattan Transfer, who can't even make it into the "Talent Deserving Wider Recognition" category. What's up with that? Professional critics, listen to this one and explain yourselves! Ms. Siegel concentrates on the era of the '50's and 60's where jazz met rock (Etta Jones and Nancy Wilson meets "The Chordettes"), and the results are marvelous. Highlights: "Don't Go to Strangers",a rendition that proves Ms. Siegel among the preeminent modern American torch singers (as does "Go Away Little Boy"); "I Want You to Be My Baby" (which, along with the title track, shows she can still swing); and a most worthy set-ender, "The Big Hurt", a wonderful recreation of Miss Toni Fisher's big 1959 hit with a "tango against swing" beat. I have "The Tender Trap" and "Friday Night Special", but I'm partial to this one in part because of its consistency and in part because of an outstanding choice of sidemen: Cedar Walton, Tom Harrell, and Fathead Newman. What a trio for a singer to sing with! Buy it; you won't be disappointed.
