5.0 out of 5 stars Eva Takes Us "Somewhere" New, August 26, 2008
This review is from: Somewhere (Audio CD)
This new album "Somewhere" beautifully showcases Eva Cassidy's many talents -- her original arrangements, her stunning ability to sing any genre, her highly skilled guitar playing and of course, her incomparable vocal delivery. "Summertime" is one of my all time favorites on the album because Eva has managed to arrange this classic into something all her own while simultaneously delivering exquisite vocals and brilliant acoustic guitar work.

Eva Cassidy's voice always makes me want to pull my chair closer. The recordings "My Love is Like a Red Red Rose", "Coat of Many Colors", "If I Give My Heart"(performed with her brother, violinist Dan Cassidy) and "Bold Young Farmer" make me feel as if I've been scooted to a front row seat. Her vocals on these songs deliver that gorgeous purity that is classic Eva.

Another highlight of the album is "Aint Doin' Too Bad" and I marvel over the way Eva moves effortlessly between blues, rock-a-billy, country and Texas swing with her arrangements of "Won't Be Long", "Walkin" After Midnight" and "Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain".

One of the unique treats offered on this CD is the opportunity to witness Eva's work on two original songs "Early One Morning" (with her friend Rob Cooper) and "Somewhere" (written with long-time friend and producer Chris Biondo). Both original works are unpredictable and take you somewhere new. I am particularly impressed with Eva's lyrics on the beautiful finale of the "Somewhere"; they are both intimate and universal:

"Is time my redeemer?
Loneliness my only friend?
Just once in a lifetime
Strangers share a common end
And I like an arrow
Straight for love I went again
And you like tomorrow
Never knowing where and when

Somewhere, somehow
At sometime someone cared
Maybe just for a moment
Or maybe for a lifetime..."

"Somewhere" takes the listener on a new "five star" journey.
