5.0 out of 5 stars A gem of a performance 20 Oct 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I'm of a certain age when I remember when singers were singers (and not just a recorded voice).
I've no time for the plastic pop of today when winning a TV talent show and making one album gets the artist a 'superstar' tag.
Liza falls into the first category, along with Garland, Streisand, and Bassey.
Having witnessed, for the first time, Liza live on stage (in Birmingham) last year, I did so with some intrepidation. Not having weathered the years as well as the other two contempories mentioned, the fact that she was a legend in the true sense of the word drew me to the Symphony Hall and a night of sheer guts, glamour and showbusiness the like I hadn't seen for a long time.
The voice was cracked and breathless. The body was stiff. But the charisma you could smell from the back of the auditorium. They don't make them like that now.
So this new CD was also bought with some reservation. But totally unfounded. Singing with a piano some old standards, it's a masterclass in phrasing, storytelling and sheer musicality.

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid Collection 23 Sep 2010
Format:Audio CD
After watching Liza's tragic performance on Oprah the other day, I was scared of what Liza was going to sound like on her first non-cast studio album since 1996. And, well, it sounds like it was recorded just after "Gently". She sounds shockingly good; throaty and controlled. Her voice was tailored for these kind of songs, as they let her wrap her smoky register around them, and never once demanding her to reach a note she could only have dreamed of hitting in recent years.

The selection is interesting. The title track is a relatively unknown song called, well, "Confession", which I had only heard performed by Mabel Mercer. It's a witty track, and it sounds like it could have been written for Liza: "I always go to bed at ten, isn't that a bore? I always go to bed at ten, and then I go home at four". Just magic. She gives a suprisingly good deliverance of Sinatra's "All the Way", and an absolutely different perspective on "At Last". "On Such a Night Like This", she pays a small homage to her mother, and "Remind Me" is equally as enchanting. "Confessions" finds Liza sounding better than she has in years, and I was quite frankly pleasantly surprised by how great she sounded.

This should be an obvious clue to Liza, that this is the kind of material she should be performing, instead of embarrassing herself by singing songs her voice can no longer handle (the Oprah performance being perfect proof of that). But she will, with almost certain guarantee, go back to perform "Cabaret" and "New York, New York" once again...and again.

5.0 out of 5 stars NOW LIZA'S BACK. 16 Nov 2010
Format:Audio CD
In my opinion she was'nt in 2002, but after Liza at the Palace, Let's make a date with Johnny Rodgers and now Confessions, I say welcome back Liza. Liza have allways been a good storyteller, and she is indeed on Confessions, every song has a story, and she do it in a lovely jazzy voice with controle and strength. Many peoble say to day she can't do Cabaret and New York, but as a true Liza fan, you could'nt go to a Liza consert without Cabaret and New York, I know I`ll miss it. I love confessions and also the lovely pianoplaying of capable Billy Stritch, the only complain I have, is to do Close your eyes and I got lost in his arms, witch both is on the CD GENTLY from 1996 and almost performed in the same way, I'd rather had other standards song with the LIZAtouch, maybe Misty, Moonglow or whatever, Maybe next time.

KAI, DENMARK.

4.0 out of 5 stars Intimate CD 22 Dec 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Imagine being in a New York bar or supper club and its late, you've had a few drinks and feel mellow and this torch song diva comes out from behind a thick velvet drape in a sparkly evening gown... this CD creates just that intimate atmosphere. Cracking selection of songs, wonderfully expressed. Liza is a little rough on some of the tracks and can't quite hit or hold certain notes and a few times it was cringe worthy but on the whole and great laid back CD.

4.0 out of 5 stars Confessions of an Icon 4 Aug 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I won't call this classic Liza, 'coz it ain't - her voice simply cannot hold up to the belting notes of signature tunes such as 'New York, New York' or 'Rose Turn' anymore - yet she has successfully found a good base in the laid back, jazz sounding, piano bar type songs featured here on 'Confessions'.

Take away Liza's voice and the tunes are simply elevator music, but Liza's smokey interpretation and delivery bring each track to a level where, yes, they could be 'classic' Liza.

Although several of the tracks are featured on her 90's release 'Gently', the one's included here are re-recordings and, dare I say, better than the earlier version's. There is no one standout track, all are good, and you don't have to be a Liza-groupie to appreciate the quality of this recording - well done Liza! If justice is done, 'Confessions' should open you up to a new generation of jazz-influenced fans!

5.0 out of 5 stars She's still got it........................ 5 July 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I saw Liza on Graham Norton, and again by chance on Loose Women. How fab is she! She looks fantastic, is full of life and living. This cd ensures that women of a certain age still have the ability to show our younger sisters a thing or too! Amazing.
