A Sophisticated Lady and A Sophisticated Album

I listened to Dylan and Cohen as a teenager; they gave my dissatisfaction with society, and political anger direction and focus. Listening to Jungr singing Masters of War, past memories of that youthful anger were rekindled. The most expressive instrument Barb Jungr possesses is her voice, and she uses her passionate, wondrous vocalization with supreme skill; soft, yet powerful, she becomes the conduit for Dylan’s lyrics to show that nothing much has changed. Politicians still put guns into the hands of young men, then turn and run when bullets fly. This is exactly what has happened in Iraq.

A further aspect to her genius, is the modesty of her performance. Yes, it’s Jungr singing, but she ensures the words remain those of the authors, while she gives them her own musical interpretation. I think that the most intricate example of this is her rendition of Hard Rain, but I won’t attempt to describe what I heard, it is uniquely impassioned, presented with subtlety, and peppered with a tangible undercurrent of despair. I am mesmerized by her interpretation of Cohen’s “Land of Plenty” the compassion and the despair in her voice is magnified by the way she intimately presents the song.

Buy this album, it contains great wisdom, presented with luxuriant sophistication, fire and wounded passion. You will not be disappointed. Furthermore, if you ever get the chance, go to one of her gigs, her live performances are intoxicating and dynamic.

Beautiful arrangements, joy to the ears

This beautiful album is just a joy to listen to.
Not only are the stunning arrangements simply a feast for the senses but Barb's voice is angelic, strong and calming.
Barb seems to go from strength to strength vocally and this album shows off her wonderful, unique style perfectly.
An album to treasure and enjoy for years.
Do not hesitate to purchase.

Another great album from Barb

She takes on some of Dylan's biggest songs here and it's a triumph! There isn't a weak track on this album but if I have to pick out some highlights then her treatments of Masters of War and Chimes of Freedom stand out

She always puts a lot of thought into how to interpret the songs she chooses - and here she has excelled again

In an era during which rap and electronic music rose to commercial ascendancy, cabaret music could have easily become, to say the least, a quaint, passé art form. But during the last quarter of the 20th century, an alternative cabaret circuit developed and actually began to thrive throughout pockets of Europe. One of its catalysts and mainstays was Barb Jungr. Among Great Britain's best-kept secrets, she helped spread the word as a writer, advocate, and educator, but more importantly as one of the...
