an­other Time, an­other Place BMG 8/10 Leonard Co­hen col­lab­o­ra­tor up where she be­longs

Bet­ter known for ’80s sound­track bel­ters like Dirty Danc­ing’s “(I’ve Had) the time Of My Life” than her mas­ter­ful in­ter­pre­ta­tions of friend Leonard Co­hen’s work on 1987’s Fa­mous Blue Rain­coat, Warnes’ first al­bum in 17 years re­vis­its her ne­glected acous­tic roots. “I See Your Face Be­fore Me” pro­vides jazzy easy lis­ten­ing as gen­tle as Blos­som Dearie’s peer­less take on “It Amazes Me”, and the Cal­i­for­nian ex­er­cises equally re­mark­able re­straint on the del­i­cate, Joni Mitchell-flavoured “Once I Was Loved”. It’s her un­likely, ten­der cover of Pearl Jam’s “Just Breathe”, how­ever, that best de­fines this en­chant­ing col­lec­tion.
