Stephen Holden on Barb Jungr

The NYTimes weighs in on friend-of-this-blog Barb Jungr’s new show at the Cafe Carlyle: “Ms. Jungr is like the best teacher you ever had, the one whose enthusiasm for a subject instilled a lifelong passion for literature or music or art. For her, songs and songwriters from all over and from every era and genre are the thing. A performance, be it of a standard, a European art song or a punk-rock anthem, is a personal deconstruction that strips the material naked so that you see through any disguises; sometimes the undressing is so radical that at first you don’t recognize what is underneath.”
