I also own Nightclub and Companion, and they're both great, too, but I've been listening to this one quite a lot in the past two months or so, and it hasn't yet ceased to amaze me. I feel like I need to listen closely 5-10 more times to even begin to appreciate all the nuances. In my opinion, in 50 years we'll see Barber as one of the greats of our time. She is amazingly well rounded -- her voice, pianio playing, composition, arrangements and lyrics are all masterly. Her voice is lovely, her vocal phrasing and Monk-like toying with melody are extremely sophisticated, and unlike most singers who accompany themselves, her piano chops are with the best. Her dark, sardonic mood blends the best of classic blues and jazz with a contemporary approach that out-classes Cassandra Wilson. I'm most impressed on this album w/ her own compositions -- their enchanting lyricism and tight, clever modern melodies -- particularly Company, Let It Rain and Post Modern Blues. Well balanced w/ standards and contemporary covers, including Light My Fire and She's a Lady. Please buy this record.
