Description & Features+

Annie Lennox is an icon, not only because her voice is without peer, but because for four decades she has fearlessly surrendered herself to her music. It has taken her down dark roads and up joyous paths. Throughout, she has resolutely defied categorization, diving into blues, soul, folk and pop - all with equal abandon - to create songs that captivate and bewitch, and, more than anything, make us feel less alone. On "Nostalgia," Lennox reveals another layer. Even though jazz is not the genre for which she is best known, how could she resist the siren call of some of the most memorable melodies and lyrics from the Great American Songbook: songs like George Gershwin and DuBose Heyward's languid "Summertime"; Hoagy Carmichael and Stuart Gorrell's wistful "Georgia on My Mind"; Abel Meeropol's shattering "Strange Fruit," and Johnny Green and Edward Heyman's yearning "I Cover The Waterfront." Co-Producer Mike Stevens started with keyboards and added instrumentation sparingly - a lacerating guitar solo in the middle of "Screaming" Jay Hawkins' torrid "I Put A Spell on You," or a lonesome accordion accompaniment on the pining "I Can Dream, Can't I" - but wisely left the focus squarely on Lennox's incomparable voice. She cradles Carmichael's genial Southern standard, "Memphis In June" and caresses the gentle slopes of "The Nearness of You," one of the most tender, romantic songs of all time. She transforms "Summertime" into a lament, as well as a lullaby. With all extraneous orchestration stripped away, the songs return to their original power and, in some cases, an almost aching sweetness and innocence absent from much of today's music. The 12 songs here stand magnificently on their own individually, but, taken together, they form a mosaic of our humanity, linked together by our universal desire for love, acceptance, and connection, and united by Lennox's raw and beguiling delivery. We re-discover ourselves in every song, their familiarity rekindling an aspect of our own journey, whether it's rejection, longing, cherishing, or remembering. Even though these songs came from an era when the world was a very different place, the human condition hasn't changed and neither has their ability to touch us in the deepest recesses of our hearts and reveal their - and our - unerring vulnerability once again. Especially in Lennox's loving hands.

Ratings & Reviews+

Annie Lennox - Nostalgia is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Annie Lennox sings classics! Always love her work, but Annie Lennox has done it again, this time with classic oldies from the 40's and maybe even earlier. Great voice, nice arrangements. Minimal CD packaging a good idea.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed I saw Annie Lenox perform two of the songs on TV, and was excited to hear the rest of the cd. There was none of the passion that she sang with live, in fact, it seemed as if she couldn't be bothered singing at all. VERY disappointing.
