"Night" is a remarkable achievement from a most unlikely pair of friends, Julliard-trained classical pianist Simone Dinnerstein and alt country singer-songwriter Tift Merritt. It is an album replete with songs of "solemn intimacy", to quote a National Public Radio commentator, which invite the listener to listen further, as though these were performed live in the sanctuary of the listener's own room; a musical dialogue between two close friends whose musical roots stretch from American bluegrass, folk and country music (Merritt) to folk and classical music (Dinnerstein). Opening with a song composed and sung by singer Tift Merritt on guitar, a lament about the meaning of songs ("Only in Songs"), with Simone Dinnerstein joining towards the end, "Night" segues almost instantaneously into a Schubert lied ("Night and Dreams") sung in English by Merritt, with a brief interlude by her on harmonica that is an unorthodox, yet surprisingly appropriate, addition, with Dinnerstein a most sympathetic accompanist. Merritt doesn't try changing her style of singing from song to song, whether it is her own country music compositions, jazz, folk and rock songs or the Schubert lied, sounding as though she could be Edith Piaf - if Piaf had sung in English - in a soft voice pregnant with despair and longing, especially on the songs "Night and Dreams", "Don't Explain", "Dido's Lament", "I Shall Weep At Night" (composed for this album by Brad Mehldau), "Wayfaring Stranger", "I Will Give My Love An Apple", and "Night" (composed for this album by Patty Griffin). Merritt's singing will not only remind knowledgeable listeners of Edith Piaf, but also, Suzanne Vega too; the latter especially on "Night".Read more ›

Came to this album as I have for many years enjoyed the talented way Tift Merritt interprets a song both at gigs and on CD. This collaboration with an equally versatile performer such as SImone Dinnerstein takes her performance into a new and exciting dimension to produce a recording of superb quality. I particularly liked there Cohen Variations based on Suzanne, and their version of I Can See Clearly now as the fine track is a piece of sheer musicality. Would recommend this album to anyone as a gem not to be missed.

Have loved Tift's work for years - did not know anything by Simone - a joyous combination indeed !!
