5.0 out of 5 stars Liquid gold, 16 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Go Back Home (Audio CD)
I have long been a fan of Audra McDonald, ever since purchasing her "How Glory Goes" Album.. It's been a while since she has issued a new album but in the meantime I have relished her contributions to the "Allegro", "110 in the Shade" and "Porgy and Bess" recordings. This new release is pure magic, displaying her enormous talents as both actress and singer, in a hugely varied and eclectic programme, ranging from show tunes to settings of poems. There are 2 standout tracks, the title song from Kander and Ebb's brave and ambitious "The Scottsboro' Boys" which she delivers with breathtaking poignancy and "I'll be There" from an off-Broadway musical "Ordinary Days" which leaves tears in the eyes. She also displays a flair for comedy in the sardonic "Baltimore". There's a delightfully simple and pure reading of "Edelweiss" in which her husband accompanies her on guitar and she has great fun with "Married Love" a cynical and witty number by Michael John LaChiusa. Really every track delights. In the accompanying booklet she talks interestingly about her choice of material. Highly recommended
