Barb Jungr – Every Grain of Sand – Village Voice
Stating with conviction and charm that she's drawn to songwriters who "bear witness," she gives the Bob Dylan and Jacques Brel canons readings as deep as or deeper than the original manufacturers'. The thrush, who has quite a reputation in England and on the Continent and wowed 'em at the Flea Theater a couple months back, effortlessly finds links between the two so-called legends that manage to deepen appreciation of both. One of the best examples of 'the cross-pollinating is her combination of Brel's little-known "Les Marquises"and Dylan's "Not Dark Yet." She's fleshy and voluptuous in her flowery gown and beautiful in a way that has nothing to do with conventional definitions.
