Cry Me a Torch Song – the Video Version: January 2018

6 Feb

The January 2018 issue of Cry Me A Torch Song – The Video Version. Piers Ford reviews albums from Mary Gauthier (Rifles & Rosary Beads: “Emotional touch-points that are universal and strike sparks of hope and revelation in the darkest corners of the lyrics”); Joan Baez (Whistle Down the Wind: “A rich, plangent sound, and a natural, unforced grandness that befits an artist of Baez’s stature”); Beth Nielsen Chapman (Hearts of Glass: “Conflict, affirmation, loss and revelation jostle for attention in a beautifully produced collection of new and revisited songs”), and Mary Byrne (Mary Byrne Sings the Sixties: “Pristine versions of signature numbers, impeccably arranged”).
