Product Description

"O'Callaghan's voice is as rich, pliable and luminous as ever, interpreting Cohen's songs with tremendous tenderness and a mature, worldly sensitivity and insight. Yes, the soprano nails Cohen!

It doesn't hurt, either, that she has members of the Gryphon Trio backing her up on several tracks, as well as the fine jazz pianist, David Restivo; their collective work on "Alexandra Leaving" is particularly beautiful. And bassist Andrew Downing's gorgeous arrangements are outstanding on "If It Be Your Will" and "Anthem". But, for me, the jewel is O'Callaghan's take on "Dance Me to the End of Love". Translated into Spanish, it's pure joy and downright sexy." -- The Wholenote - Sharna Searle - Feb 2012

3.0 out of 5 stars Problems with the CD April 24 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I can't get it to play on my iMac - it skips and jumps. It does play on a regular CD player. Disappointing, as I wanted to add it to my iTunes

5.0 out of 5 stars Love the Jazzy take on Leonard Cohen April 11 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I love Leonard Cohen's music, and paired with Patricia O'Callighan's amazing voice -- this is an absolutely stunning album. Hallelujah and I'm Your Man are standouts, but really, her interpretation of every song is just perfect. Can't recommend this album highly enough.

5.0 out of 5 stars Matador: A "superb collection of Leonard Cohen gems" July 12 2013
By Roger Bourke - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Matador: The Songs of Leonard Cohen is the fifth solo album recorded by the Canadian singer Patricia O'Callaghan and was released by the Marquis label in November 2011. It was shortlisted for a 2012 Juno Award and won almost immediate critical acclaim. Christopher Loudon described it in a review for the JazzTimes website as a "superb collection of Leonard Cohen gems" recorded by "arguably Canada's most gifted jazz-cabaret hybrid" on an album featuring "what is quite possibly the most exquisite "Hallelujah" ever recorded" ([...] Jon O'Brien wrote in a review for the AllMusic website: "A graceful and respectful homage to a true musical icon, Matador: The Songs of Leonard Cohen cements O'Callaghan's position as one of his most accomplished interpreters" ([...] Named after the Toronto tavern that Cohen frequented in the 1960s, Matador is unusual for a pop music album since, although electric guitar can be heard on one song ("Everybody Knows"), none of the tracks features electric bass guitar. The violinist, cellist and pianist on the album, Patipatanikoon, Borys and Parker, are better-known as the Canadian chamber music ensemble the Gryphon Trio and one song ("The Smokey Life") is a duet with Steven Page, a founder member of The Barenaked Ladies. Matador was produced with financial support from the Government of Canada through the Department of Canadian Heritage Canada Music Fund.
