Muze PNote On her third American album, Holly Cole turned in a set of Tom Waits songs recorded with an augmented version of her trio; in addition to piano and bass, there are drums and guitar, as well as the occasional contribution from The Canadian Brass and harmonica player Howard Levy. The result puts a welcome twist on the songs, which include numbers from each stage of Waits's career, and reasserts Cole's talent as an interpreter. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine

Artist Overview

Born in Halifax, Nova Scotia in 1963, singer Holly Cole got her start in Toronto's fertile, cross-cultural jazz and pop scene of the mid-1980s. As the leader of the Holly Cole Trio, she made her recording debut with the 1989 holiday EP CHRISTMAS BLUES and 1990's GIRL TALK respectively. During the 1990s, Cole drifted into the adult album alternative pop scene with hit albums like TEMPTATION (an album of Tom Waits covers) and DARK DEAR HEART and toured with Sarah McLachlan's popular Lilith Fair. Since 2000, she has returned to her jazzier roots with concept albums like SHADE.

Professional Reviews

Entertainment Weekly (8/18/95, p.56)
- "...What's consistently effective is the minimal soundscape crafted by producer Craig Street..." - Rating: B

Q (10/95, pp.113-114)
- 3 Stars - Good - "...a rum idea--a whole album of Tom Waits songs...the rough textures cleverly softened..."

NME (Magazine)
(10/7/95, p.49)
- 7 (out of 10)
- "...a minimalist KD Lang....most effective on the Shirelles-esque sass of `Jersey Girl' and the scary `I Don't Wanna Grow Up'--where the Waits original was a rude kid rant, here it's an introverted suicidal lullaby..."
