Notes and Editorial Reviews

On this release, the inimitable Ute Lemper entertains an audience at the Café Carlyle in New York City. Recorded in 2005, the show formed part of Lemper's world tour, and saw the talented singer performing a meticulously arranged set. Tackling works by Berthold Brecht, Kurt Weill, Jacques Brel, and other celebrated songsmiths, Lemper also adds some original material into the mix, and turns the set into a cohesive whole by staging dramatic scenes between each song.
