"... classic cabaret songs in a program that is stunning, both emotionally and in appreciation of her fine voice and interpretive talent." - Toronto Free Press
One of the year's best! - Rated #3 in the top classical CDs for 2000 by Maclean's Magazine.
Patricia O'Callaghan's third album, Real Emotional Girl, is her major international debut. The CD is simple, artful, youthful and elegant. Her crystalline voice is capable of conveying drama, melancholy or playfulness, and she brings these emotions and more to her interpretations of songs by Leonard Cohen, Kurt Weill, Randy Newman and more.
Patricia is accompanied on this recording by Robert Kortgaard, piano; Andy Morris, percussion; Scott Alexander, bass; Phil Dwyer, piano; Mark Fewer, violin; David Heatherington, cello; Kathleen Kajioka, viola; George Kollar, bass; Max Mandel, viola; Tom Szczesniak, accodion; Claudio Vena, viola/accordion; Camille Watts, flute; and other musical friends.
