England's top song stylist, Barb Jungr, returns to New York City to celebrate her birthday, the reissue of her 1999 album Bare, retitled Bare Again on CZ Records, and another encore engagement at the award-winning Metropolitan Room. Jungr teams with Charlie Giordano, musician extraordinaire.
In addition to introducing songs from Bare Again, the performance also includes songs from Jungr's award-winning recordings from Linn Records, featuring her critically-acclaimed interpretations of Bob Dylan classics.
"In a genre too often compromised by nostalgic posturing and ersatz sentiment, English cabaret star Barb Jungr is a genuine original. Eschewing the overnoted margins of the Great American Songbook, she deploys warmth and sensitive musicality to reinvent songs by more recent writers -- such as Bob Dylan... Her supple and versatile voice glows like a hearth on a winter's day, and her emotional intelligence is faultless; she knows just how a song should feel."
-- Adam Feldman, Time Out New York, January 25-31, 2007
"Barb Jungr is one of the best interpreters of Jacques Brel and Bob Dylan anywhere on this angst-ridden planet today."
-- David Finkle, Village Voice
