Barb Jungr is probably not familiar to you yet but buy this and you'll never forget her.
This is beautiful, grown up music for anyone who loves great songs and exemplary singing.
Barb's choices here will ring some bells-Ne Me Quitte Pas (if you go away) has been tried many times but with this new translation has reached a peak; La Chanson des Vieux Amants is a heart rending ride through a relationship, again in a new translation: and No Regrets should bring back some memories.
And who doesn't know I love Paris and April in Paris? But I'll bet you never go back to the old versions after these!
Don't be put off by the titles, all the songs are in English and sung so beautifully that it wouldn't really matter if you didn't understand a word anyway!
Barb Jungr is a great undiscovered talent, quite the most emotional and skillful vocalist I have ever heard.
Buy this and then hunt out her new cd of Bob Dylan songs 'Every Grain of Sand', done in the same Chanson style, and just enjoy-it's impossible to do anyhting else.

Chanson - The Space in Between will grab hold of your ears and soul from the first note to the final and make you a fan of Barb Jungr. Barb takes a song and pours her heart and soul into each and every word taking you on an emotional journey. She is also accompanied by some of the best musicians that I have ever heard that help in creating the various moods that cd covers. The songs range from Jacques Brel to Elvis Costello and for good measure there are original compositions as well. Chanson is an emotional journey that you do not want to miss. Barb Jungr is a singer the people should get to know and enjoy. Buy this cd with No Regrets for you will be happy that you did.

I loved the expressive performances on this CD. Barb and her musicians make interesting choices on every track, and the result is an immensely satisfying reverie.
