Product Description

Product Description

with Robbie Williams and Ewan McGregor(!)

Amazon.co.uk

Fans of the 1998 film Little Voice and the play on which it was based will be thrilled to learn that the actor/singer/impressionist Jane Horrocks has finally preserved her vocal impersonations on to CD. But have no fear, this is not simply Celebrity Stars in their Eyes, rather Horrocks takes on a number of diverse divas, namely Billie Holiday, Shirley Bassey, Marilyn Monroe, Judy Garland and Marlene Dietrich, and performs songs that they themselves never actually recorded. So, we get Holiday singing "Crazy", Bassey doing a rousing "Too Close for Comfort" and from Garland a poignant "It Was a Very Good Year". The five all "appear" together in the opening track, Horrocks' witty version of "Hello Dolly". And if all that wasn't enough, there are also duos with Robbie Williams, Dean Martin and Horrocks' Little Voice co-star Ewan McGregor. Overall a great but, at just over 45 minutes, too short collection. --Rebecca Agnew

I have seen both the play and the film Little Voice. A comment at that time was audiences didn't really believe that it was Jane singing. This record prooves that she was. As the artists never recorded these songs. How amiss of them!! The album is inspirational. What talent. I adored Hello Dolly and That Old Black Magic with Robbie Williams.

Jane Horrocks singing as Judy, Billie, Marlena, Marilyn, and Shirley on one CD...amazing!
When I saw Jane's guest spot on "Parkinson," I was so knocked out by her performance that I had to make this my first amazon.co.uk purchase. Kudos to the New York-based big band for their fine backing, and to Leo Green for his wonderful arrangements.
Jane is "Absolutely Fabulous" in my book, and I hope that she does another album in the near future!!!

I just heard The Further Adventures of Little Voice an I'm absolutely blown away! On this CD Miss Horrocks proofs that she is anything but a little voice. Jane Horrocks performs songs as Judy Garland, Marilyn Monroe, Shirley Bassey, Billie Holiday (wow!) and Marlene Dietrich (as a german listener I appreciate this very much - and that accent!). The same stars she does in the play/film. But letting Jane Horrocks perform songs that these stars never recorded makes this album unique. Like my predecessor I love the duet with the one and only Robin Williams. Robin and Marilyn! What an idea! But every song is an highlight for itself. The touching "It was a very good year", the five divas together on "Hello Dolly" and and and. Did I say five? Judy, Marilyn, Marlene, Billie, Shirley and Jane. SIX divas on one album - and don't forget Robin, Ewan and Dean. How lucky can you get? If you loved the play or the film you will love this record even more! Jane Horrocks: what a talent she is! Thank you, Miss Horrocks.

Jane Horrocks has a lovely voice no matter who she sings as. All the tracks are wonderfully arranged. It took a few listens to get used to the Robbie Williams track, but it works. Ewan McGregor sings so smoothly, and is one of the highlights. Even though I don't like manipulating the dead by electronic means, the Dean Martin track was well-done. All in all, I think this CD is a success.

I`m amazed how anyone can not be impressed with the unquestionable talents of Ms.Jane Horrocks! Here amazing ability to impersonate so many famous singers is astounding! Her first outing as Little Voice was in the filmof the same name. And although the film and songs where amazing the soundtrack unforetunatley only included a few of her versions of the songs the rest being the actual recordings! This cd portrays everything the soundtrack should of been and gives you songs that the original artists never sang, but still makes it sound real! The best track on the album is "That old Balck magic" a duet with the astounding Robbie Williams, Who was so impressed with the film "Little voice" he asked Jane to record a song with him on his album, only to be turned down due to her hectic schedule. Yet when she asked him if he would record on her album he jumped at the chance for a guest spot. Another guest apearance on the album is her co-star in "Little Voice and occasional singer Ewan McGregor! Ewan ofcourse was sampled for the hit "Choose life" from the Trainspotting soundtrack and sang like a rock angel in the cult hit film "Velvet Goldmine"! An altogether well rounded album for fans of nostalga(spelt wrong i think) and the big band sound! Hopefully you`ll enjoy and find the album as insperational and up-lifting as I did! Definatly an album to be payed again and again and again..............

Terrific album - great band (top New York session men, and you don't get better than Bucky Pizzarelli), good arrangements (Leo Green, who's new to me, but does a great job), clever choice of songs, and then there's the superlative Ms Horrocks. I'm honestly not sure why I'm a bit uneasy about it - clearly the whole object of the CD is to provide a showcase for Jane's remarkable impressionist skills, in the guise of a spin-off from the original Little Voice film, and it succeeds completely. Beautifully done, and you would swear it was Shirley, or Judy, or whoever. But it isn't - I mean, that's the whole point. The fact that it is a series of take-offs, however consummately done, is what puts it into the 'novelty records' classification, and that's a bit of a shame - it might just stop it being taken seriously enough. It's great entertainment in its own right, so no complaints about that, but Jane Horrocks is such a collossal talent that it leaves me wishing that she'd do more as herself, in her own voice - whatever that is.

I've probably had a problem with impressionists as a species since childhood - the awful old days of Mike Yarwood on Saturday night British TV - that might be what it is. Who knows? Anyway - the point is this is a terrific album (which is where I started), the version of Just in Time for example is a real heart-stopper, and it can't be faulted musically. I just need to know more about what Jane can do when she's not being someone else!

Recommended.
