Just Like a Woman
(hymn to Nina Simone)
Just like a woman is Barb Jungr's hymn to the late, great Nina Simone. This beautiful, haunting album combines Barb's compelling arrangements and resolute delivery to bring a fresh perspective on songs associated with her heroine Nina Simone.
Barb Jungr proves she is a peerless interpreter and makes these wonderful songs her own, drawing subtle qualities from the lyrics with a moving lightness of touch to make their message utterly contemporary.
Barb is perhaps most famous for her re-workings of Bob Dylan songs and has included: 'Ballad of Hollis Brown, The times they are a changing and a soul-meets-reggae influenced Just like a woman.
Barb has surrounded herself with some of the UK's finest musicians including Danny Thompson on bass and Mark Lockheart on saxophone and clarinets.
Barb Jungr has won numerous accolades with many industry critics considering her to be the finest song-stylist in Britain. She has been compared to her heroine Nina Simone, for her same fearless approach and dedication to personalising songs, and Edith Piaf and Peggy Lee.
Barb is a major artist in Australia and the US and has won the Nitelife Award for Outstanding Cabaret Vocalist - the only broad-based, criticdriven award show for nightlife in New York. Just like a woman is a magical album that will cement Barb Jungr's growing reputation for uncompromising musicality and outstanding lyrical delivery.
