Editorial Reviews

Vocalist and songwriter Ann Hampton Callaway wants to help the world fall in love. On her new Telarc release, At Last, she casts a spell that's likely to help her cause. Callaway calls this collection "love songs for grownups," because it offers an introspective look at the long road on her way to love that has led her to the fulfillment she has found today. At Last is a mix of jazz standards, versatile pop songs and a couple original tunes, each woven together to create a narrative that is perhaps as cinematic as it is musical.

I loved "SLOW" and "BLUES IN THE NIGHT" so I figured this would be another winner. Ann Hampton Callaway has managed to make every song on this album unique and musically enchanting. Her voice rings true with every word and every note. Just when I think I need to hear "Landslide" for the fifth or sixth time, I remember that I'm going to want to do the same thing on all the songs to follow. Her rendition of "On my Way to You' is a masterpiece and literally leaves me breathless. AT LAST will be my Valentine's Day gift to special people in my life, my birthday gift to others, and a Christmas gift to many when December arrives. Buy the CD and then be prepared to spend some quality time with one of America's most talented singer/songwriters.

I bought this album after hearing Callaway sing "Spain," which I consider one of the best songs in the album. "Lazy Afternoon," "Comes Love," "What Is This Thing Called Love," and actually all the selections in the album are excellent. The only song in the album that I found a little disappointing was the title song, "At Last." Perhaps Callaway was trying to copy Etta James's style, but I like Ann's style much better, and Etta's performance of Etta's style is better than Ann's performance of Etta's style. I hope Callaway will someday re-record "At Last," preferably after listening to Glen Miller's recording, which preceded Etta's by quite a few years, and which was not so excessively stylized.

It is truly exciting when an artist you love takes their music to the next level. I have loved Ann Hampton Callaway's many beautiful releases but "At Last" surprised me with new musical heights and musical depths. Her voice sounds more rich and expressive than ever. And there is a sense of inspired genius informing her song choices, arrangements and lyric readings for this concept album of "grown up" love songs. Backed by a team of extraordinary musicians, she ignites new life in songs as diverse as Joni Mitchell's breezy "Carey" to the sensual "Lazy Afternoon" to the Arlen classic "Over the Rainbow." I always look forward to the originals she includes on her recordings and the two selected "Finding Beauty" and "Save a Place For Me" are gorgeous additions that sit well with Cole Porter and Stevie Nicks. I hope the President and First Lady hear Callaway's passionate "At Last". The love song they chose for their historic Inauguration has probably never received such an unbridled and soaring interpretation. For music lovers and lovers everywhere, this is must have music to stir the embers of love and hope in these challenging times.

I love this CD. I had never heard of Ann Hampton Callaway until I heard her being interviewed on the Broadway station on Sirius Radio. I fell in love with her voice and was intrigued by her interview- so I purchased this CD through Amazon. I love her voice - and the choice of songs on this CD. This is a nice CD to play on a Sunday afternoon...very enjoyable.

Ann Hampton Callaway scores a big goal with her CD entitled At Last. These songs of love showcase Ann's outstanding skill as a chanteuse and when I hear it I remember seeing her perform live in New York City a few years back. The quality of the sound is excellent and the artwork is very well done. Ann's voice is like a finely tuned instrument and we are all better off for her sharing her gift with us. Ann takes her time with the ballads on this album to deliver lush, moving renditions of songs by her and the musicians that will stand the test of time.

"What Is This Thing Called Love?" by Cole Porter has Ann Hampton Callaway squarely in the spotlight--right where she belongs! Ann never sings a superfluous note and that's grand. She delivers "What Is This Thing Called Love?" passionately and you can tell she wears her heart on her sleeve--bravo! At the end of "What Is This Thing Called Love?" listen for Ann to scat a bit with drummer Victor Lewis and Jay Leonhart who also plays bass. "Comes Love" has a smooth jazz flavor to it and that horn work fits in perfectly with the rest of the musical arrangement. There's a great arrangement for the piano and Ann never sounded better. "Carey" has a great feel to it, too.

"At Last," the title track for this album written by Mack Gordon and Harry Warren, is very pleasing to the ear; when Ann Hampton Callaway sings this she does this ballad great justice. I wonder if Etta James would like this version of "At Last?" Ann aces this seemingly effortlessly; but we know of course it really wasn't so easy. Ann's incredible talent always carried her through.

Ann's follow-up to 1996's Blues in the Night is one more jewel in her dazzling collection of albums.

The first Ann Hampton Callaway album I purchased was Slow, and I was pleasantly surprised by two things. First, Ann is refreshingly free of the diva-lounge singer-coquette baggage that weighs down so many potentially talented female vocalists. It's just Ann, her voice, and a well-chosen selection of songs. She doesn't hide behind an image. She didn't need to create an "identity" because her true identity, the heart and soul that comes through like a brilliant lighthouse beacon in her music, is much more powerful than anything that could be "created."

While I am not a big fan of labels, I'd have to agree...Ann excels in performing "love songs for adults." On the "Slow" album, one of the many highlights was her duet with sister Liz on Van Morrison's "Moondance." On "At Last," she travels similar terrain with Stevie Nicks / Fleetwood Mac's "Landslide" and Joni Mitchell's "Carey."

The message behind that? Good music is good music. The person who is unable to appreciate Cole Porter and Fleetwood Mac in one sitting is probably the same person who is not ready for Ann, and that would be a genuine shame.

This album is warm, heartfelt, and...in February 2009, when so many people are afraid and uncertain about what tomorrow might bring...a welcome affirmation that love and beauty are like the cream that rises, unfailingly, to the top of life. Thank you Ann.
