Not in the least careless.,
This review is from: Careless Love (Audio CD)
The Billie Holiday comparisons have been done so we'll leave that there. But anyone with the balls to cover Leonard Cohen, Bob Dylan and Hank Williams in the jazz idiom on the same cd doesn't lose any sleep over what the purist may think.
I for one would have been incandescent with indignation at such treatment of Hank Williams hallowed material years ago. I couldn't give a toss now lifes too short for such blinkered small mindedness. The variety of different music I would've missed out on is unthinkable. Thankfully these are more open minded times musically speaking.
As long as its done well and preferably the artist brings something new to their interpretation is all that matters, after all a well done cover is a joy. And on the whole she does it very well. If she didn't do it well i wouldn't have more than the one cd.
