Product Description

Product Description

Eagerly-awaited 2009 studio album from Barbra Streisand, featuring her first time collaboration with the Grammy-winning Canadian Jazz artist Diana Krall (piano) and her quartet (guitar, bass, drums) who brought a refined and sensual poignancy to the album's spare and subtle accompaniments. This album presents the artist as a cabaret and Jazz singer of emotional clarity, depth and maturity, offering the listener a warm and intimate selection of late night meditations on love's powers, heartbreaks and solaces. Rounding out the album's smoky after hours ambience with his sublime orchestrations is the legendary songwriter and Grammy-winning arranger Johnny Mandel (who worked with Streisand on her 1993 Back to Broadway album and arranged/co-produced Krall's 1998 Grammy-winning When I Look In Your Eyes).

One could never fault this remarkable vocalist for not daring to take chances with her music catalogue and expand her craft as a vocalist.
This impressive artist remains the true vocal barometer for all singers to measure themselves against.

With the release of her 63rd album, LOVE IS THE ANSWER, Barbra delivers an exquisite product that adds yet a new dimension to her illustrious career as a musical performer.
She now officially becomes the only artist to have achieved number 1 albums in five consecutive decades.

LOVE IS THE ANSWER is a sophisticated collection of ageless songs that offer fans a warm and intimate musical experience with a treasured American vocalist.

*** Be warned: this release is NOT Barbra showcasing herself as a "POP" artist from the "Guilty" era!

It is a stylish jazz inspired platform that soothingly displays her natural gift for interpreting timeless musical lyrics.
The ambience is purposely set to be smooth and tranquil.

Her vocal technique on LOVE IS THE ANSWER is again above reproach while the song selection is ageless, mature and comfortable.

Ms. Krall deserves Grammy recognition for having produced an enchanting product that gracefully encourages Ms. Streisand to slightly moderate her vocal approach.

~~~>> I would highly recommend owning the double version of this CD as it will gift you with two varied musical arrangements of the entire track listing plus a bonus song; YOU MUST BELIEVE IN SPRING - a beautiful composition from Michel Legrand and the Bergmans.

The product in its entirety is soft musical candy for your ears to enjoy.
You will want to become comfortable with this CD during snowy winter days and or rainy afternoons.

Soft, romantic, relaxed and purely Streisand!

Canadian customers should HEAR sample snippets of these Streisand cuts on the amazon.com home page. Do not assume that the amazon.ca and amazon.com pages for a given recording are the same. There are different reviews and, usually, click-thrus for samples only on the amazon.com home page. That said, even Streisand fans should probably give a listen first. Johnny Mandel's string arrangements are stellar, and Tommy LiPuma's production skills are, as always, A-plus. Diana Krall has unfortunately had a hand in convincing Streisand she can do no wrong. This shows vocally in a couple of places, probably not enough to discourage fans from raves.
P.S. Unusually, the price on both sites is the same on both sites.

I have not bought a Barbra cd for sometime and I was anxious to hear this one because Diana Krall was producing it. I am disappointed. I was looking to hear a much larger variety of music. Every track was the same (too slow), I wanted to hear something much livelier. The quartet cd has a bit more life.
