●JEANIE BARTON / MOMENTS OF CLARITY / EMOTIVE MUSIC / IMPORT / CD / EM0012 / 07606256/ 2,100円＋税
Barton’s vocal sound is warmly melodic and mature, and she delivers the songs with evident sincerity. This album is described as “an innovative electro-orchestral collaboration” between the singer and Simon Paterson, Professor in Music Technology at Nottingham University. Paterson’s playing on several instruments is deft and admirably suits the material.
She’s a proficient songwriter, all but two of the titles being her compositions; the exceptions are Weeks Of Wonder (by Barton and Paterson) and The Air That I Breathe (by Albert Hammond and Mike Hazlewood). The themes explored in the lyrics are varied, acknowledging ever-present issues. Although stylistically this is music for now, its performance, especially in the sound and manner of the singer, is timeless. Regarding the duplicated titles, Who Wants To Live Forever? and Weeks Of Wonder are versions described as radio edits, while Moments Of Clarity is described as BASSiC.
