This is an album that many fans of Coughlan have been waiting for. It's obvious from past efforts and certainly from this album that Mary has a lot of respect for Billie Holiday, and her treatment of all the songs on this album is exemplary. Combining the magic of a live Mary Coughlan performance with the moody songs of Holiday, the album provides a fitting tribute to the songs of Billie Holiday by one of the worlds greatest and original voices in music. Coughlan is backed by a fantastic jazz band which provides a more than adequate sound of the era of the songs, and gives a wonderful backdrop to Mary's sensual voice. What a pity the show, in which Mary played the part of Billie Holiday, which gave rise to this recording never made it over to the UK.

Another fine album from Mary Coughlan in which she does more than justice to a string of classics songs. She doesn't try and emulate Billie Holiday, but stays true to her own distinctive style - which, in my opinion, is exactly the right thing to do. The backing is sensitive and complementary. Excellent.

Her best album that I've heard to date. I literally could not listen to anything in over a month since I found this beautiful recording. A little expensive but quality stuff. Her soul is as rich as her beauty. She incomparable to anyone else in the field of jazz recording. At times heartswellingly deep at times soullifting even jovial. If you love jazz and torchsingers you will first full in love with this beautiful woman and secondly with this beautiful recording.

I believe a concert by Mary Coughlan is something that must be experienced, not just listened to on CD, and this one is no exception. Beautiful songs, but something's somehow missing...
