Barb Jungr - Walking in the Sun - Sunday Times


01 November 2006
Sunday Times
Clive Davis

If Randy Newman is the thinking person's pop singer, Barb Jungr occupies a similar niche in this country. An astute interpreter of chanson, folk, blues, jazz and show tunes, she has been on quite a roll of late. Many a Dylan fan was seduced by the svelte covers on "Every Grain of Sand", and she peeled away the Graceland kitsch on "Love Me Tender", a low-key tribute to Elvis. This album heads deeper into blues and gospel terrain. Jungr may not be a born R&B shouter, but there's a simmering intelligence in the tolling chords of Brownie McGhee's Rainy Day. Elsewhere, Eric Bibb adds characteristically soulful but discreet guitar.
