Hymn dla Niny Simone
“If Randy Newman is the thinking person's pop singer, Barb Jungr occupies a similar niche in this country.” - The Sunday Times "Just like a woman" is Barb Jungr's hymn to the late, great Nina Simone. This beautiful, haunting album combines Barb's compelling arrangements and resolute delivery to bring a fresh perspective on songs associated with her heroine Nina Simone. • Barb Jungr proves she is a “peerless interpreter” and makes these wonderful songs her own, drawing subtle qualities from the lyrics with a moving lightness of touch to make their message utterly contemporary. • Barb is perhaps most famous for her re-workings of Bob Dylan songs and has included: “Ballad of Hollis Brown”, “The times they are a changing” and a soul-meets-reggae influenced “Just like a woman”. • Barb has surrounded herself with some of the UK's finest musicians including Danny Thompson on bass and Mark Lockheart on saxophone and clarinets. • Barb Jungr has won numerous accolades with many industry critics considering her to be the finest song-stylist in Britain. She has been compared to her heroine Nina Simone, for her same fearless approach and dedication to personalising songs, and Edith Piaf and Peggy Lee. • Barb is a major artist in Australia and the US and has won the Nitelife Award for Outstanding Cabaret Vocalist - the only broad-based, critic-driven award show for nightlife in New York. "Just like a woman" is a magical album that will cement Barb Jungr’s growing reputation for uncompromising musicality and outstanding lyrical delivery.
