Holly Cole : Temptation


Over the past decade, new talents such as Cassandra Wilson, Patricia Barber and Holly Cole have redefined the world of female jazz vocals. Cole’s “Temptation”, a 1995 Blue Note release, is her musical tribute to the writings of Tom Waits. Besides being a superb audiophile recording (perfect in every production detail, from the rendering of Cole’s amazing voice to the incredibly natural sound captured by producer Craig Street’s team), this album has garnered kudos for her interpretation of Waits’ unique compositions.
