Cry Me A Torch Song – the Video Version: November 2017

5 Nov

The November 2017 issue of Cry Me A Torch Song – The Video Version. Piers Ford reviews albums from Janie Dee (Janie Dee at the BBC: “A set which keeps you guessing all the time”); Meredith Braun (When Love is Gone: “A narrative arc traced with an absorbing mixture of classic pop and theatre songs”); Sophia Marshall (Bye Bye: The influence of Americana is clear but Marshall is no pale imitator”), and Jude Adams (This Girl This Woman: “The life-affirming result of a pile-up of influences from a voice that commands attention”).

    Julie London is where it’s at! I saw the BBC special: Julie London Documentary:
    The Lady Is Not A Vamp.
    Magnificent.
    Could you name one or two Burt Bacharch/Hal David songs that you would consider
    Torch Songs? There has to be more then two. Does “Anyone Who Had A Heart,” would
    qualify?
