The Art of RENÉE FLEMING 4784446

. . . Fleming has had a wide-ranging musical appetite, and this album reflects that. The money tracks are all here . . . along with some unexpected pleasures, such as a let-your-hair-down recording of Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah" . . . [a] big voice and technique . . . you might be surprised by the laid-back expressiveness of her "Summertime" and the deeply affecting arrangement of Bernstein's "Somewhere" . . . every new album with her name and photo on the cover is reason to celebrate.
