Overview

For Carly Simon, Film Noir is a way to explore traditional pop classics. Using smoky saloon songs like "Ev'rytime We Say Goodbye" as a blueprint, Simon and producer Jimmy Webb create a seductive, intimate atmosphere.

Carly's still got what it takes. Her voice is still strong and unique and she really puts her heart into these songs. I'll take her over Mariah or Whitney any day.
