HAUTE COUTUNES Weekly music reviews by Laura Lanktree
Cat Power Jukebox
Nothing has changed. Cat Power is still the sultriest voice in the biz and she is still covering songs to rival their original versions. Her latest project, Jukebox, covers 10 classics (ranging from Billie Holiday’s “Don’t Explain” to Joni Mitchell’s “Blue”), and includes one original track, “Song To Bobby” (Bobby Dylan that is).
The heart and soul in Chan Marshall’s chops lends itself beautifully to these classic tunes and her delivery of Sinatra’s “New York” will impress you and your gramps. There’s something for everyone when it comes to beautiful music!
