Overview

From her first notes on “One Bad Habit,” the grab-‘em-by-the-lapels opening track of Storybook, a collection of previously released and unreleased Angel material, it’s clear that Linda Eder is going straight for the gold. Not that this Broadway diva doesn't ever put on the brakes -- there are plenty of exquisitely sung ballads here -- but a sense of commitment and passion is always present, whether Eder is swinging her tail off or caressing a slower number. With a lovely mix of classic tunes ("All the Way,” “Bridge over Troubled Waters,” and “The Man That Got Away,” among them) and newer material -- the album succeeds as a showcase for a superior contemporary vocal talent, one who respects the past without being a slave to it. Sure, there’s plenty of Streisand in Eder, but this classy vocalist has more than enough personality, and all the vocal chops necessary, to convey her own tales on this Storybook.
