Hummin' to Myself buy CD music For interpretive singers, the keys are juggling genres, selecting appropriate material, and working with compassionate collaborators. Linda Ronstadt, who scored her first hit in 1968, gets high marks in all these categories, and 2004's HUMMIN' TO MYSELF, an album of standards, is no exception. On the gentle swing of "Blue Prelude," the brassy declarations of "Never Will I Marry," and the tongue-in-cheek pathos of "Miss Otis Regrets," Ronstadt's warm, familiar alto fronts a top-shelf small jazz combo.

||An instrument in the finest tune!|
Hummin' to Myself buy CD music WOW! Linda Ronstadt's voice is an incredible instrument, what an incredible range and interpretation of these standards. It is rare to find a voice like her, that could pretty much interpret music with such accuracy and finest. What she needs is better P.R. to sell more CDs. I'll gladly take the undertaking at a fraction of what they paid THEM! Linda you are the best!!!

||This is how it's done|
Hummin' to Myself songs Forget Rod Stewart's attempt at the standards. Linda Ronstadt was the FIRST pop/rock artist who brought the standards into the mainstream when she released a trilogy of albums w/Nelson Riddle in the 1980's. Now, nearly 20 years after the release of those albums, Linda returns to show how it is supposed to be done. For this collection, Linda eschews a full orchestra. Instead, Linda recorded this collection of standards (many of which are a bit obscure and not recycled to death) with a tight, swinging jazz band. Ah, and that VOICE!! It shows no sign of weathering. In fact, it's stronger and more lustrous than ever. You get every Linda here. She belts. She croons. She thrills. Get this one!!! pat.

||Incredible sounds and performance of some classics|
I absolutely love Linda's performance on this CD as well as her choice of songs, musicians, and the studio!! I rate it 5 stars!!

||An Excellent Album|
Hummin' to Myself album for sale This is an excellent album in years. This is better than Linda's collaborations with Nelson Riddle. The setting is intimate, the combo is first rate, and the vocal is exquisite. It just needs more promotion to let people know how good the CD is. The best cut is " I'll be Seeing You" There is no doubt Linda is indisputely the greatest female singer in this genre.

||Flawless and Thrilling!|
Hummin' to Myself CD music This is a killer recording! The small jazz ensemble -- and she pulled together all-star jazz musicians for this project -- is the ideal setting for that soul-piercing and earth-shaking voice! The song selection is stellar, and she's feelin' it! That woman can outright sing and damn well make you believe it's true. It's been a good long while since I've bought a CD as exciting and moving as this one.

||Linda has done it again!|
Hummin' to Myself buy CD music Not to any surprise Linda Ronstadt has once again made an album truly for all time. I have loved her voice and work for years but it wasnt until the last few years that I was really exposed to the artist's true versatility. To some degree following her work with Nelson Riddle Classics she has completed a American/ Jazz fusion that is truly lush to the ear. I think my favorite tracks are Never Will I Marry and I'll Be Seeing You. If your a Ronstadt fan then you will love 'Hummin To Myself" John Mayle Deepwater. NJ.

||Hummin' To Perfection|
Hummin' to Myself songs Eleven amazing songs sung to perfection by Linda Ronstadt. The musicians are top-notch and the moods projected here are both playful and insightful. The vocals are dead on target and should not be missed.

||Our Lady does it Again!!!!|
Superb vocals on this great collection of Jazz Pop songs. A Great album done in an intimate setting of EXCELLENT Jazz musicians that highlight "The Voice that Set the Standard." The title track, Cry Me a River, and Blue Prelude alone make the album well worth the cost. A Must Have!!!!!
By Ed J. in NJ (New Jersey)
Perfect vehicle for Ronstadt to show off one of the most beautiful and educated voices in popular music.

||A WASTE OF TIME|
i hate this cd. it is a terrible attempt to sing standards , and i was very sad that Linda did not return to her true class of standard material that i have always loved with her past recordings, What's New & her other follow ups to them. This cd is nothing like that of those clasic recordings that Linda did so well, it is very boring, and musically is it just depressing. Better luck next time Linda.

Linda Ronstadt is back to her best again.

||Linda vs. Barbra|
I noticed that Barbra Streisand's last album, "The Movie Album", entered the charts at No.5. That is all well and good, because Barbra is a marvel, and she deserves every ounce of recognition that she gets. But I also noticed that this particular album of Linda Ronstadt did not even crack the Top 100. That is a shame, because if anyone has earned the title of runner-up to Barbra, it is Linda. She has had numerous hits, and has succeeded in genre after genre. Why her records don't sell today, I don't know. This latest one is a collection of standards backed by a small jazz combo, the jewel of which (for me) is "I'll Be Seeing You" But it doesn't matter. She could sing news headlines and it would still sound good. All I'm saying is this: People, she's a great singer, greater than great, but she's not out there getting a lot of publicity, so don't pass her by. This particular diva product of the 20th Century should not be overlooked.
