5.0 out of 5 stars Huh? 29 Sept. 2006
By E. Olesh - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I'm confused by Amazon's review - I think this is a beautiful album. It features Audra's trademark surprising song choices and nuanced interpretations. I think the reviewer who said that Audra's interpretation of the Nellie McKay song was completely straightforward should have another listen. One of Audra's biggest gifts (aside from her incredible set of pipes) is her dramatic ability, her ability to communicate such a wide range of colors and emotions.

Meanwhile, I'm still waiting for Audra to record the wonderful set of "7 Deadly Sins" songs she sang at Zankel Hall a couple of years ago. Please, Audra, please!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Utter bliss, magnificent, simply divine to the ears. 30 Sept. 2006
By The*hot*wax*kid - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I love this cd, it is a joy devine to listen to, yes we can sit back and critique it for what it is not. But in this case, I'd rather spend my time enjoying what is offered here. It is a very moving experience for me to hear Mrs. Mcdonald singing any thing,any time ,any place, I was fortunate enought to see her in Ann Arbor, Michigan a couple years ago. It was very satisfying to say the least. And once again I have no complaints with her choice of material for this disc. I believe that we must learn to except that artist must be allowed to do what moves them. This is what makes the hard work that goes into every performance (when such is the case) worth while. With a voice like hers I would not care if she sang theme songs for sitcoms. I just love to hear her sing.

Love,Peace and Harmony-

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing. 4 Oct. 2006
By Lily Serene - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Although I love Audra McDonald's voice and interpretation and acting ability, I'm disappointed by the choice of songs. From reading the other customer reviews, it seems that I'm out of step. I want to hear songs with melody; something you can hum afterwards. These songs are more like musical prose than musical poetry. Like the boring part between the arias, if you're not an opera lover. The singing is of course wonderful, but I wish she'd go back to the kind of music she had on Happy Songs.

5.0 out of 5 stars A BRIDGE TO ENJOYMENT 9 Jan. 2007
By Alan Dorfman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
An unparalleled songstress and multiple Tony Award winner returns to disc with a collection drawn from new Broadway and current pop and delivers a surefooted disc of impeccable and tasteful performances. I bought this after watching her perform in concert on PBS and was not disappointed in any way, shape or form. Her version of popster John Mayer's "My Stupid Mouth" is a particular stunner and the sly sexuality of "Tom Cat" smolders and leaves you wanting more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprised and happy 27 Sept. 2006
By A. B. Tennell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I was intrigued when I heard Audra McDonald tell her audience during a recent performance in San Francisco that her next CD would be a compilation of popular music written by new and established singer/songwriters. Having followed her career for ten years now, and seen her perform with the San Francisco Symphony, the Los Angeles Philharmonic, as well as her usual 5-piece combo, "Build a Bridge" is a refreshing departure from the music for which Ms. McDonald is renowned. Overall, the selections on "Build a Bridge" are well-chosen songs that showcase her beautiful instrument around lovely arrangements in a new way. Impressively, Ms. McDonald's voice is warmer and richer than on any previous recording (and I've listened to nearly every one countless times). Have you ever walked the length of a bridge and been surprised and happy when you reached the end? Listening to this CD is like that.
