I got into Abbey Lincoln's work with her resurgence in the early '90's, eventually digging up as much of her back catalog as possible and loving most of what she was doing in the present day. I was less enchanted by Who Used to Dance and Wholly Earth, though and so it was with some trepidation that I picked up Over the Years. But a little voice told me to (Natas?) Anyway, this ranks among my favorite recordings by Lincoln neck in neck with A Turtle's Dream and People in Me. Her voice is better than ever, I even love the way she chews the spanish and tastes it in Somos Novios, and her confidence and wisdom are exemplified in an often understated delivery. I got chills at the end of A Heart is not a Toy. If you're wondering, stop. Just do it. Congratulations on a perfect project, Ms. Lincoln.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
