(5 out of 5 stars)

"It is rare when a performer is equally at home in more than one genre (or at least able to translate that joy to the audience); rarer still when they can triumph. But Rebecca Pidgeon certainly does. Oddly, I only knew Ms Pidgeon from her impressive performance in film THE SPANISH PRISONER and then earlier this year her stunning interpretation of Catherine Winslow in David Mamet's adaptation of the Rattigan play, THE WINSLOW BOY. After seeing that film three times, I finally realized what it was that held me in such rapt wonder: it was as if the entire film was under the spell of this wonderful new actress. How uninformed was I to feel later when searching through the Internet to find this and the other wonderful discs Ms Pidgeon has been producing. THE NEW YORK GIRLS CLUB is a wonderful record--mixing great jazz, blues, some traditional and neo-folk styles with great musicians and beautifully nuanced vocals. I've always marvelled at the few fine singers who can also act...with this and her other superb CDs, she may be the industry's best kept secret--at least for now."
Another masterpiece.

"Rebecca Pidgeon seems to be determined to change the style of music from album to album, which is only commendable, naturally. Her 2nd solo outing is very jazzy, and filled with blissful songs. Not only is she a superb vocalist, but a brilliant composer and poet as well. And again she has re-recorded an old "Ruby Blue"-song, probably their ultimate; "Primitive Man". The mixing of "Auld Lang Syne" and Sam Cooke's "Bring It On Home To Me" is simply a stroke of genius. Why this lady isn't a world-wide household name yet, borders on the criminal. Luckily, she doesn't seem to take forever between each new record, unlike so many other artists."
To Die For Album

"I own 600 CDs and listen about 1-2 hours daily if you count the ride to work and back. I love Rock, Jazz, classical, most everything. This album is superbly recorded and I'd say 4 maybe 6 tunes are to die for. The Word Around Town is classic torch singer in a 42nd floor jazz lounge. New York Girls Club is a light hearted look at young girls. 24 Hours of Love is a sexy yet haunting tale of infidelity. And the Auld Lang Syne mix with Bring it on Home to Me from Sam & Dave is outstanding, especially the Robert Browning or whatever poem at the beginning. This is an album none of your friends will have and all of them will ask "who is that signing" -- its that good. Love it immensely. BTW - her other albums dont have the life or poingnancy of this one. Buy this album. Unless you are a top40 nut, this is a must have album for serious listeners, especially Jazz and soft-rock types."
