Night is Jazz Singer Holly Cole‘s 3rd album on the 2xHD label at NativeDSD. Following her earlier albums Holly and Girl Talk.
For her first album in five years, multiple award winner and internationally acclaimed Canadian jazz singer Holly Cole presents this conceptually ambitious piece of work with a unifying theme: an intimate collection of songs for the nighttime.
In trademark Holly Cole fashion, Night crosses different corners of the musical spectrum from the first focus track, a James Bond theme by John Barry (“You Only Live Twice“), to a Mort Shuman classic originally sung by Elvis Presley (“Viva Las Vegas“) to Tom Waits (“Walk Away“ and “Whistling Past The Graveyard“), Jacques Brel (“If You Go Away”) and Gordon Lightfoot (“If You Could Read My Mind“).
A song by late Sixties/early Seventies Canadian folk-pop duo The Poppy Family has gently found its way into the repertoire (“I Thought Of You Again“). All of this is complimented by an American songwriter/folk classic from the Danny O’Keefe songbook (“Good Time Charlie’s Got The Blues“), a riveting version of a Captain Beefheart tune (“Love Lies“), a timeless pop ballad previously sung by Art Garfunkel (“I Only Have Eyes For You“) and – a wonderful new Holly Cole original – “You’ve Got A Secret“.
It’s a fascinating collection of songs that delivers additional proof of Cole’s unique mastery of song interpretation, featuring a theme where she is truly at home. Eleven wonderful tracks for the special time between dusk and dawn. Holly Cole says “When we made this recording the band and I pushed well past normal studio hours. We worked deep into the night and journeyed to unexpected and surprisingly rewarding places.”
