Liza's Back

Liza's Back

by Liza MinnelliLiza Minnelli




Call it a comeback! With her triumphant appearances at New York’s Beacon Theater in 2002, Liza Minnelli regained her legendary stature as one of America’s great performers. And thankfully, it was recorded. This vibrant album documents a singer embracing an eager audience and never letting go. Revisiting some of the great moments from her celebrated career -- a brace of songs from Cabaret and the title tune from New York, New York are expected highlights -- as well as select material associated with her mother, Judy Garland (“Over the Rainbow”) and appropriate standards (“I’ll Be Seeing You”). Minnelli turns in nakedly emotive renditions that remind us what made her a star in the first place. Although comparisons with Garland’s thrilling 1961 Carnegie Hall concert recording are inevitable, Minnelli’s disc can proudly hold its own as a contemporary gem.
