    His writing about Ms. Cook is gorgeous tribute to this singer of singers. I said it before and I’ll say it again…There’s Barbara Cook, and then there is everybody else.

    I particularly loved this:
    The process by which a gifted singer evolves into a real artist is probably impossible to delineate clearly. It may well be a mystery even to the artists themselves and probably has much to do with age and endurance and learning not to escape into music or stand outside it, judging the performance as they give it, but to live more fully in it. Great singers fold into their songs the scars that life’s inevitable setbacks leave upon everyone (and the satisfactions too) without turning singing into raw, formless confessional.
