Holly Cole
Collection Volume 1
(Alert Music)
Holly Cole’s first (overdue) career retrospective is a tasteful, flattering look at her contributions to the Canadian jazz scene. Thankfully, it mainly focuses on her work as a jazz interpreter. There are a few full-blown band tunes from her later works, but the songs from Girls Talk, Don’t Smoke in Bed and the sole offering from the Tom Waits tribute album Temptation (a version of “Shiver Me Timbers”) stand out the most. Noticeably absent is “Tennessee Waltz” but there are several excellent rare tracks that make up for it.
