Barb Jungr - Shelter From The Storm - The Sunday Times
The thinking person's cabaret singer edges closer towards jazz, teaming up with the American pianist Laurence Hobgood, best known as chief collaborator with the even more cerebral Kurt Elling. The bassist Michael Olatuja and the percussionist Wilson Torres complete a sleek line-up. Just about the best Dylan interpreter around, Jungr dissects the title song against a McCoy Tyner-ish backdrop. West Side Story's Something's Coming is slyly funky, and there's a skittish waltz on Bowie's Life on Mars. Stars Lazy but Shining is the pick of the originals.
