I don't know what I expected from this . . . another well-timed but superficial performance to enhance sales vis a vis Oprah . . . the former president was there, and his wife and child . . . lots of old timers from the theater world. Phyllis Newman, Mrs. Jule Styne, Lorraine Gordon, etc. Her buddy, Cis Corman, and husband, the very cool Mr. Brolin. Could this possibly be a sincere artistic effort? I got it in the mail yesterday and sat down with my dogs and a glass of red wine and a little trepidation. I am not that fond of the "Love is the Answer" CD, though on repeated hearings, I think it is masterful, but requires some effort like an obscure artsy French or Japanese movie, maybe. Not a simple listen for me. I have purchased everything Streisand has released since I first saw the movie "Funny Girl" in 1968; I admittedly have not liked everything she has done. I walked out of her 2006 concert tour in Washington, DC at intermission because I thought it was awful (mostly Il Divo, in restrospect). I guess I mostly like my Barbra to myself and not in an arena with 15,000 other people. Anyway, I watched this thing once, and as each song passed, and as the banter played out, I became haunted and mesmerized once again by this "girl singer." Where did she come from? Where did this voice come from? This face? These eyes? That knowing smile? The gift of irony and sharp-edged humor? So after another couple of glasses of wine, I watched it again knowing I could just sit back and enjoy the give and take of it. I still don't know what to say. It's unlike anything I've seen previously from her or anyone else. As good in its way as "Happening in Central Park.Read more ›

Given her inarguably legendary status and all the celebrities in attendance, Barbra Streisand can never really go home again, but that didn't stop me from being thoroughly entranced by this burnished record of her intimate performance at the Village Vanguard from last September. In the famous Greenwich Village jazz club that actually turned her down for a singing job nearly a half-century prior, she appears more relaxed than ever with her mellifluous voice intact. Directed quite unobtrusively by Scott Lochmus, the one-night event was timed with the release of her last album, her 63rd, Love is the Answer, a stunning studio-polished return to form filled with jazz standards and show ballads.

Backed only by a sharp yet accommodating four-piece band, the 67-year-old songstress still displays the melisma and dramatic conviction in a singular voice that remains barely diminished after all these years. Granted her high notes are gone, but her phrasing and interpretative skills remain unparalleled in her leisurely paced ninety-minute set. Selections from "Love Is the Answer" dominate the program, but freed from the disc's immaculate production values, Streisand's vocals feel much more alive and dynamic in the capture of her live performance here. She vividly expresses wistful regret in "Spring Can Really Hang You Up the Most" and answers the gentle wake-up call of the Sinatra chestnut, "In the Wee Small Hours of the Morning".

The gentle bossa nova sway to "Gentle Rain" remains intoxicating, while the signature cleverness of Betty Comden and Adolph Green informs the heartfelt words of Jules Styne's yearning "Make Someone Happy".

Simply Satisfying!
I've just finished watching this absolutely divine show. For some reason I didn't have hi hopes for this Barbra, mini, concert. But was I ever wrong! The show on DVD is so intimate one feels as if they're really there at The Vanguard. There is a lot of chatter from Barbra, of course, between songs, which I loved! I had the feeling it took her a couple of songs to really warm up but when she did I suddenly remembered why I have adored from afar this woman for 36 years. She blows this small audience away with "If You Go Away" . Yet, when Ms. Streisand dives into songs like Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered, Make Someone Happy, Nobody Heart Belongs to Me, and The Way We Were, one feels as if they have sailed on a great boat with a great love and have experienced the most satisfying afternoon of one's life. Barbra Streisand rises above the bar once again and I pray our Barbra never goes away!

I enjoyed watching ONE NIGHT ONLY: BARBRA STREISAND & QUARTET AT THE VILLAGE VANGUARD BLU-RAY. The picture is crystal clear and the VERY small venue provides viewers the opportunity to experience --at least vicariously-- the thrill of being in one of those jazz supper-clubs of yesteryear and the intimate setting between performer and audience.

Barbra, though her voice has changed somewhat the older she gets, is still in fine singing voice. Like a well-oiled machine, that inimitable voice starts to purr at about the third song and it's as though time has stood still. Perhaps the first two songs were just warm ups or maybe Streisand got more comfortable with the audience, whatever it was she was back in fine form by song number three. The band plays nice and tight, with the arrangements sounding bright and lively.

Most of the song selections come from the CD Love is the Answer (Deluxe Edition) as this was a promotional type gig, but she does some of her other songs like "Bewitched, Bothered, and Bewildered," "My Funny Valentine," "Evergreen," and "The Way We Were." And Barbra really opens up that voice on "The Way We Were," belting it out and almost sounding hoarse --for effect, mind you-- and I really hope that's an indication of things to come. I'm still hoping for a more up-tempo jazz/torch song album with Barbra belting like she did back then. And though "Love Is The Answer" was OK it didn't do it for me.

Some reviewers complained about her talking too much in-between songs, but I liked this part. She talks about the song and when and where she heard it etc., and also anecdotes about her past and experiences in the Village(Greenwich Village).
