Barb Jungr – ‘Walking in the Sun’  An SACD review by Mark Jordan

Barb Jungr – ‘Walking in the Sun’ An SACD review by Mark Jordan

English chanteuse Barb Jungr knows how to give a song a personality, even when it is a song that already has a strong one. She’s able to grab each song by the horns, and whether it is her own or someone else’s to start with, by the time she’s done, it’s definitely hers. This could be a bad thing in the wrong hands, but fortunately, Jungr has the creativity, skill, and shrewd sense which put her into that select category of artists whom we’re eager to hear cover songs.

It takes a lot of nerve for some brash bunch to come along and try to make a recording of a piece that was already masterfully recorded under the composer’s own direction. And it would take a lot of talent, a lot of inspiration, and a distinctive angle to stake out new territory in an oft-recorded work. read more…
