Having seen Ute live (an amazing experience and one to be recommended),of course makes listening to any recording so much better. A good range of songs from the maestro of cabaret singing, showing off her vocal and dramatic range. If you like old style real musical & cabaret singing as oppose to the majority of Andrew Lloyd Webber inane drivel that all sounds the same, then this is for you.

Some good tracks, some less so. A couple of the tracks I have heard sung much better by other performers.

Ute Lemper has a brilliant voice, and they way she interpets the classic songs, it is most enjoyable. It si something I will never tire of to listen to.

This is the perfect cd for anyone not familiar with the wonderfull voice and panache of Ute Lemper. It samples all the different aspects of Ute's career, form the Broadway musicals to the already classic Weill/Brecht interpretations ('Mack the Knife' is simply divine!). And her rendition of Chicago's 'All that jazz' just makes you green with envy for the fortunate that saw her live in London!!

Ute Lemper is that rare thing nowadays: a singer at ease with Weimar cabaret songs and contemporary classical ones. Come to think of it, that makes her pretty unique and - the Weill/Brecht connection notwithstanding - she seems willing to push her own limits and use her simultaneously husky, sexy and operatic voice to serve such unexpected composers as Michael Nyman (or even, in later recordings Astor Piazzolla and Jacques Brel).
On this CD the songs from "Cabaret" are delicious and there are the odd Nyman gems, but the strongest points (I would dare to say) are her takings on the Weimar-time cabaret songs and the Piaf/Dietrich songs also available on "Illusions".
Dare to take this one in. You might just discover or re-acquaint yourself with one of the world's superb performers of songs. By then you will be very be glad you did.
Btw: is Ute particularly popular in Portugal?
PS - Chicago being in the news don't miss her All That Jazz. There we're talking!

This album captures the breadth and scope of Ute's wonderful range as a singer.
Feels like there is something for everyone here.
