Overview

At Carnegie Hall

Barbara Cook is the acknowledged doyenne of cabaret. As a performer of ingénue roles on Broadway throughout the late '50s and '60s. When it was time for her to reinvent herself in the 1970s, Cook did so with a vengeance. Her Carnegie Hall live recording captures this spectacular singer announcing through song that she was now good and ready to step into the role of premier cabaret artist. Cook made everything sound newly minted and intensely personal at this legendary performance: Judy Collins's "My Father," Bacharach's "A House Is Not a Home," Leon Russell's "A Song for You," the standards "Dancing in the Dark," "Wait Till You See Him" and "He Was Too Good to Me," as well as such classic Broadway fare as "Dear Friend" from She Loves Me. In her hands, old songs and new meld together, linked by quality and her breathtaking interpretations.
