Barb Jungr – Every Grain of Sand – In Tune International
Barb's latest album, EVERY GRAIN OF SAND, is dedicated to the songs of Bob Dylan. His appeal always eluded me, but the songs when performed by Barb, take on new depth, and I defy anyone not to feel some degree of involvement with their emotional resonance. DON'T THINK TWICE, IT'S ALL RIGHT and IF NOT FOR YOU, standout, whilst the intriguing THINGS HAVE CHANGED features a tango arrangement which stresses the importance of sympathetic backing by musicians. Barb's talent deserves a wider prominence and it would be interesting to hear her approach to more songs from the standard era.
