Pages from an Imaginary Life
Decades may have intervened between then and now but the vivid performances, such as those contained in "Pages From an Imaginary Life" haven't dimmed. Perhaps Andy's most precious gift as a vocalist is not his enormous range and breath control or his austere but communicative piano playing but rather it is that he creates an atmosphere. He transports us to a Lotus-Eater Land where we are asked to meet Bey's renditions on their own terms as they seemingly erase from memory all previous versions.
