In my mind the only thing better than Barbra Streisand releasing an album would be Barbra Streisand releasing a movie.  Her new album of Jazz standards, Love is the Answer, produced by the awesome Diana Krall is out today.  She performed for one night this past weekend at the Village Vanguard.

The album sounds like a return to the says before people’s voices were botoxed for perfection.

At Ms. Streisand’s request the engineers used hardly any electronic juicing or reverberation. Her singing is uncommonly intimate and exposed.

Here are some video clips from the show.  Album is available everywhere.

Can’t wait.
