Product Description

2003 release from the Canadian chanteuse who returns to form with this first album in nearly four years. The self produced album features an imaginative collection of tunes loosely related to summer. Among the highlights are renditions of classics by Rodgers & Hart, Cole Porter, Irving Berlin and a breathtaking version of Brian Wilson's "God Only Knows".

If you are not already a Holly Cole fan, but enjoy jazz, her latest album, "Shade", may be a good way to introduce yourself to her special artistry. If you are a fan, you will smile at her continued creativity. An eclectic but effective mix of songs unified by the common theme of having something to do with summer, the album starts off with an almost "smooth-jazz""-like mechanical-sounding percussion sequence that had me dreading what was to follow. But I listened beyond that intro and was intrigued by the blend of styles and influences she acknowledges in the instrumental accompaniments, while maintaining her own distinct imprint on the vocals. Her interpretations sound unlike any other you've heard of the same song, so some of them might take some getting used to if you are familiar with other more familiar covers. But after a couple of "listens", her versions not only sound original, they sound "right". This album is a real treat for any season!

I've been a Holly Cole fan from Girl Talk on, and find Shade has a different appeal from her other CDs. Each new CD seems to suit a mood, and Shade is my current summertime favourite.

I recently had to buy a new one as I loaned mine to a restaurant owner in Mexico, who played it to appreciative diners in his garden restaurant. As he didn't offer it back, I left it for other customers' enjoyment.

But I'm on track again now.

It's summertime and Holly is singing Hot! Hot! Hot!, and it is 30 C here, but I know I'll be cooling off soon when she gets to We Meet in the Shadows, her cool mellow tones, uniquely Holly, as refreshing as a soft rainfall.

I used to have an earlier album, Don't Smoke in Bed, that is kind of similar to Diana Krall's Love Scenes. It was the kind of album that sounded kind of okay. Then, I'd tuck it away on the shelf and, a year or two later, I'd make myself play it again, and I'd think that it was kind of okay. Vocal jazz is a low listening priority, but I do kind of like Holly Cole. Her shadowy soft singing is like a shelter from the scorching sun. Will this album change my listening habits? No... but it really sounds kind of okay!
