The Holly Cole Trio Don't Smoke In Bed Hybrid Stereo SACD
Holly Cole Gets The Analogue Productions Treatment!
Flat-Out Killer Record! Highly Recommended!
Smoky, Sultry Voice!
This is a flat-out killer record! Highly recommended. Cole is fabulous, period.
Holly Cole explores a number of styles on this, her second album. Adding pop,
blues, country and a French ballad to her standard, low-key jazz, Cole
demonstrates that not only does she have impeccable taste, but she has the
talent to make all of the material sound convincing. On "Get Out Of Town,"
pianist Aaron Davis gets up while playing and places one of his hands over the
piano string while continuing to play with the other. This damped-string effect
is an extremely interesting counterpoint to Cole's idiosyncratic, sexy style.
This is an all-time audiophile favorite.
Holly Cole's smoky voice is sultry, yet she's ironically humorous and candid
while reshaping traditional standards and pop classics. She is one of the
world's most alluring and talented vocalists, with an interpretive range that
delves deeply into jazz standards and modern pop. Her 1993 release, Don’t Smoke
In Bed has always been praised for it’s excellent sound. The Holly Cole Trio was
experimenting with pop elements by the time they recorded this memorable
release. The trio's rendition of Johnny Nash's "I Can See Clearly Now" became a
crossover hit and highlighted the group's changing direction.
