5.0 out of 5 stars Taken by surprise..., May 6, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: One Night Only: Barbra Streisand and Quartet at The Village Vanguard September 26,2009 (DVD)
I love Barbra -- have for years. "Love is the Answer" is one of my favorite of her recent albums. But there were moments in this new Streisand DVD that took even this ardent Streisand fan by surprise. Her voice has always been a combination of technical amazement and an actors' instinct of time and place. All that is in abundance here -- an actor in an intimate space, surrounded by more peers than fans and with no BS allowed. You can fully see Barbra "sensing" it -- that vibe that says "Be real." That's what makes this DVD one of her greatest performances. It has a roughness in both voice and intimacy that excites. Her career, always a balance of commercial success and artistry, is in full view here. I urge you to share this DVD with your friends, your children and especially anyone who wants to be in "The Show Business" because here is captured an exciting record of countless years of fame, awards and acclaim distilled in a small New York club, with sensational songs, marvelous musicians, and that rarest of all things -- an artist in her prime and still fully in her game. Brava Barbra!
