                          Album Review Highlights

                            ALBUM REVIEW HIGHLIGHTS from Stephen Mosher: BROADWAY WORLD, Gerry Gedes: BISTRO AWARDS, Rob Lester: TALKIN BROADWAY, Chris Spector: MIDWEST RECORD, Greg Victor: PARK BENCH LIVE

                            GREG VICTOR: PARK BENCH LIVE

                              The album captures the striking arrangements and lavish harmonies of Elizabeth Ward Land’s award-winning concert performances. It’s a loving treatment of deserving material (visiting Ronstadt’s accomplishments in the rock, country, folk, big band and mariachi genres) and the result is one of the most-likely-to-stay-on-repeat discs in my CD player. This isn’t just any homage, it is one great artist celebrating another.

                              The first aspects of this album that hint at just how satisfying it will be are the instrumental arrangements (by Andrew David Sotomayor) and the vocal arrangements (by Joel Waggoner). The masterful ways the songs are introduced, teased, and luxuriously treated is stunning. She is supported by stellar musicians who allow her interpretative power to guide them. Her heartfelt vocals are the perfect fit for Ronstadt’s songbook. Maybe it’s time for a Broadway show using Ronstadt’s songs as its center. Clearly, there is no one who can capture the meaning, the joy, the pathos, the yearning, and the joy of singing these songs as flawlessly as Elizabeth Ward Land.

                              CHRIS SPECTOR: MIDWEST RECORD

                                With a baker’s dozen of classics given a proper setting and send up, this almost feels like a great lost Ronstadt greatest hits. Solid.

                                ROB LESTER: TALKIN BROADWAY

                                  The highlights for me–by far–are “Blue Bayou,” “Long Long Time” and “Desperado” (for which she takes over on piano). “Blue Bayou” brings welcome fresh phrasing, adding depth and drama to the yearning to be “going back someday.” There’s sadder-but-wiser melancholy in both “Long Long Time” and “Desperado.” In both of these the singer most effectively channels the distinctive cry in the voice of her model without sounding forced. It all goes down easy (like a good martini).

                                  GERRY GEDDES: BISTRO AWARDS

                                    In the touching pairing of Anna McGarrigle’s “Heart Like a Wheel” and JD Souther’s “Faithless Love, the harmonies with Joel Waggoner and Catherine Porter are spectacular, with Land’s lead vocal and haunting vibrato piercing the heart. “You’re No Good” (Clint Ballard Jr.) rocks out with power and electricity, coming close to, if not actually, besting the original and featuring star turns by Kevin Kuhn on guitar and Arei Sekiguchi on drums and percussion.

                                    One of the highlights of the project for me is Karla Bonoff’s “Someone to Lay Down Beside Me,” a romantic wail in the night sung beautifully. Sotomayor’s hauntingly minimal introduction to “Blue Bayou” (Roy Orbison, Joe Melson) is just right as Land makes one of Ronstadt’s most recognizable and copied classics her own personal property. “Long Long Time” (Gary White), is a beautiful “duet” for voice and guitar between the singer and Kuhn. It’s sensational. The singer’s thoughtful, intelligent phrasing is perfect for “Desperado” (Don Henley, Glenn Frey) and it is a passionate, memorable closer.

                                    STEPHEN MOSHER: BROADWAY WORLD

                                      With her tribute album to Linda Ronstadt, Elizabeth Ward Land enters the realm of recording artists extraordinaire. she and Ronstadt make for a pair of excellent partners; this album goes beyond being a great “Tribute Album” and lands, squarely, in the category of Plain Old Great Album.
                                      Elizabeth Ward Land has a voice for the ages, rich with depth and nuance, overflowing with emotional connection and technical brilliance. Land’s voice is divinely throaty, oriented in a place that reaches right through the heart to the spine, where it resonates throughout the entire body. She was born to sing every song in every genre, which makes her the perfect person to embody the works of Linda Ronstadt, but the success of the album goes beyond just having the right vocal instrument to sing the songs – and the album is a success, by the way: a big one.
