5.0 out of 5 stars An absolute must buy!, 17 Sept. 2003
This review is from: The Road Less Travelled (Audio CD)
Clare Teal has been one of those artists that simply has failed to disappoint with each record she has released. I have been lucky enough to see her perform live and I can assure you that she is every bit as wonderful in "reality" as she is on record. Her new album "The Road Less Travelled" captures her every breath perfectly. Her range is astounding on this album, even more than the beautiful "Orsino's Songs". The album starts with Johnny Mercer's "Dream" (the best arrangement I have ever heard of this song by the way) and then it's straight into one of Clare's original compositions "So Blue". "So Blue" is a fitting tribute to the style of Patsy Cline and really shows off Clare's vocals. It's almost country in some places, but never crosses the line from tribute to pastiche. Then there is the awesome title track, a very powerful and intricate duet with Jamie Cullum..and again, a Clare Teal/Amanda Field original composition. Other outstanding performances on this album have to be "Something I Dreamed Last Night" which Clare sings so softly and clearly you can't help be be totally caught up in the emotions of the words and "Teach Me Tonight" that features a stunning guitar solo from Nils Solberg along with a very subtle but enhancing Hammond Organ part played by Simon Wallace. I really can't recommend this album enough, there is not one song that lets it down. "Clare Teal" a mark of real jazz quality!
