Barbra, Back Home in the Village
Wednesday, September 30, 2009
New York, NY —
Barbra Streisand released her latest album this week. It’s called "Barbra: Love Is The Answer" and includes 13 jazz standards. But when you already have 62 albums in your repertoire, what could you possibly do to create a buzz? Streisand decided to go back to her roots to where it all began. Over the weekend she performed for some lucky lottery-winning fans at the Village Vanguard, a small jazz club in the West Village. That’s where in 1961 she entered an afternoon talent contest. WNYC’s Richard Hake joined the fans on Waverly Place who did not have tickets to get inside.
