Synopsis

Amazon.com
This novel venture into film music from Julia Migenes, an artist who thrives on challenge, is pleasantly entertaining. Her singing is restrained, lovely, and successfully indulgent, while proving she's a first-class song stylist without a hint of opera-itis. While most of the orchestrations are thick and luscious, they never overpower her. But she is most pleasing in the intimate "Manha De Carnaval," arranged sweetly with guitar. In "Everything I Do," Migenes, the pop singer, lacks a distinctive color; but whatever the shortcomings, she is never dull and always stimulating. --Barbara Eisner Bayer

CD Reviews

Julia's voice + Kamen's arrangements = transcendental
Richard Rockwell | Huntington Woods, MI USA | 01/11/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Julia Migenes has recorded the definitive version of
"Calling You." Kamen's orchestration perfectly supports
her flawless voice. I listen to lots of cabaret, show tunes,
and soundtrack music and this cd is superior to most of
them. I wish Julia would release another cd of such excellence."
Beautifully done!
