Bob Dylan - The Best is Yet to Come

(click song title above to listen)

Nobel Prize-winner Bob Dylan‘s third foray into tunes previously recorded by Frank Sinatra, Triplicate (4 1/2 Stars Rolling Stone), is a stunning collection of song-craft featuring standards by American masters including Irving Berlin, Jerome Kern, Hoagy Carmichael, Richard Rodgers, Oscar Hammerstein, and Cy Coleman.

“These are recordings of breathtaking directness and beauty. There is nothing forced, no strain, no desire to put anything over on anybody or make a splash. Songs you may have thought you knew to the final decimal point you may feel you are hearing for the first time, transfigured. Not because of some dazzling new stylization or radically reimagined take on things; nobody here drew a moustache on the Mona Lisa. The singer on these recordings looks directly into the heart of each song, takes the measure of what it is about, and delivers it with such unaffected feeling and maturity and honesty that it can change you in the listening”. Tom Piazza (from the original liner notes). Hear, hear!
