Barb Jungr is more than just a great singer. She's one of the world's premiere song stylists, drawing critical acclaim both sides of the Atlantic and famed for her inspired recasting of material associated with the likes of Bob Dylan, Jacques Brel, Nina Simone and Elvis Presley. Her latest album, The Men I Love, her first for Naim documents Jungr's love of American popular song and its songwriters. And as has come to be expected with Jungr, the material displays her impressive ability to re-imagine well-known popular songs, revealing deep meanings and latent emotional content that comes to light when she dislodges the songs from their original contexts. "There is a body of great work which sits for me right inside the classic Great American Songbook, where songs both stand the test of time and also are able to be re-imagined and sometimes re-harmonised, allowing them to grow and develop beyond original recordings." The genesis of this project was a season at the fabulous uptown venue, the Café Carlyle in New York City. The Café had become famous for a particular type of American and European song, and Jungr decided she wanted to do something a little different. She worked with pianist, arranger, producer and friend Simon Wallace in creating a new and varied programme of ‘Great American Songs' by contemporary writers. The show blew the doors wide open. The season was a huge success, and the audiences queued up to after the shows to tell Jungr how much the songs meant to them inspiring Jungr to make the show the basis of her next album. "At that time Simon and I began to look at how to record them in a way that represented the ‘live' performance. We achieved this by recording lots of takes with just piano and voice, till we found the performances we wanted. Then we added further layers from some of Britain's greatest musicians - including bassist Steve Watts, cellist Frank Schaeffer, flute genius Clive Bell and percussionist Paul Clarvis". The result is arguably Jungr's most complete artistic statement to date, a profound but always enjoyable examination of the ‘heart' of some of popular music's greatest song and a spellbinding collection from one of our greatest and most original voices. Produced by Barb Jungr & Simon Wallace Down Beat

'Barb Jungr brings the same kind of warm, elegant clarity and effortlessly compelling dramatic intonation to her singing as Emma Thompson does to her acting, and instantly establishes anything she does as important.'

"After hearing Ms. Jungr live, I realize she is more than a singer - but a true performer. On stage she has the power to take you up with a wind blown lyric, and then drag you through the depths of a long lost dream with another. Great performers have the ability to create this arc - Jungr has it in spades."

"This isn't merely an entertainer whose talents scrape the heavens; rather, this is an entertainer who grabs the stars from the skies and scatters them across a room with her talent."

" Jungr reiterates her determination to take possession of the basic framework and reinvent according to her individual preferences...it is obvious that she has succeeded admirably."
