Stanstead Journal - - FORUM - Len­noxville, Sher­brooke

Get your go-go boots on and take out your um­brel­las when Em­i­lieClaire Bar­low brings mu­sic from her lat­est and Junonom­i­nated jazz record­ing The Beat Goes On to Cen­ten­nial Theatre on Satur­day, Fe­bru­ary 26 at 8 p.m. A ver­i­ta­ble trip back to the fu­ture is what Bar­low pro­poses in her ar­range­ments and in­ter­pre­ta­tion of sig­na­ture six­ties’ songs such as Nancy Si­na­tra’s. These Boots are made for Walk­ing and Burt Bacharach’s Rain­drops are Fall­ing on my Head.

Af­ter delv­ing and re­ar­rang­ing many clas­sics from the Great Amer­i­can Song­book and tunes from the ‘30s and ‘40s with her pre­vi­ous two al­bums, 2007’s The Very Thought of You and 2009’s Haven’t We Met? (both nom­i­nated for Juno Awards), Emilie-Claire Bar­low now looks for­ward to the ‘60s for her reper­toire, and the re­sult is a charm­ing al­bum that does real mu­si­cal jus­tice to that most col­or­ful of decades.

The Beat Goes On, Bar­low’s eight al­bum, is a won­der­fully var­ied col­lec­tion of clas­sic songs and styles in­clud­ing : Mo­town [“Yester-me Yesteryou Yester-day”], coun­try [“He Thinks I Still Care”], singer/song­writ­ers like Ca­role King, Buffy Sainte-Marie and Bob Dy­lan, bossa nova and psychedelia, with Dono­van’s “Sun­shine Su­per­man” and the ti­tle track Sonny and Cher’s “The Beat Goes On”.
