#7 The Sunday Times's 'Records of the Year' 2002

The Great Jazz and Pop Vocal Albums

Featured in 'The Great Jazz and Pop Vocal Albums'
by Will Friedwald (Pantheon Books)
‘This was more than a breakthrough; this was a revelation. Jungr heard possibilities in Dylan’s music that the composer himself never even dreamed of.’

Originally released in 2002 this insightful album established Jungr as one of the leading interpreters of the Bob Dylan songbook and entered the Top 10 'Jazz Album of the Year' lists in The Sunday Times and The Telegraph whilst the Wall Street Journal described it as '...the most significant vocal album of the 21st century thus far.'

Barb's revelatory interpretations get right to the heart of Dylan's lyrics, finding new depths and emotion in his work. The album's many fans include actor Jeremy Irons who named it one of his must-have albums on BBC Radio 4's Desert Island Discs. Barb's passion for the material and her clever musicality ensure that everyone will find something to enjoy on this limited edition LP. This album prompted more than a decade of Dylan performances with a Barbican tribute alongside Billy Bragg and Odetta, a highlight. 

Barb is supporting the release with a ten date UK tour in 2017.

The Telegraph (Live Review)
'The English chanteuse Barb Jungr has created a sanctuary for tender passion, wit and soul-searching reflection. The warm radiance of her voice makes the material softer, stiller...heartfelt tracks [such] as If Not For You (1970) and What Good Am I? (1989) [are] given such heartfelt utterance.'
