Stephen Holden on Yvonne Constant

The NYTimes on the chanteuse at the Metropolitan Room: “Ms. Constant’s approach to songs is wise, knowing and dry: not for her the anguished cry of Édith Piaf or the everyman vulnerability of Charles Aznavour. Her style of speech-song takes the long, dispassionate view of life, as if to say: “It is all water under the bridge. I was there, and now I’m here.””
