Movie Reviews

Peggy Lee is divine!
Dan Scott | Ptld, Or | 04/11/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Peggey Lee "inhabits" the lyrics of her songs! She lives the music as only a great actress can! This live concert performance is most likely the very best filmed recording of a great artist who is no longer among us! Yes, she had a facelift or two but she looks and sounds great! All new, young jazz singers need to see Peggy Lee live to appreciate the spell she could cast on her audience!"
AN EXHILERATING DELIGHT
J. Carter Joseph | ATLANTA, GA | 10/05/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This 'club date', recorded in its entirety in the early 1980s, is an important document of a seminal figure in American music, the divine Peggy Lee. Although just a few years past the time when her voice could shine with that famous crispness and clarity, and before the time when her health problems caused her voice to shrink to a whisper, here she is still at the top of her game, and her musicianship is undiminished.

This woman literally lived to make music, and the combo that backs her up obviously love collaborating with her. She looks great, never misses a beat or an inflection, and has the audience (and us) right in the palm of her hand. And the musicianship of everyone concerned here is dazzling. If you love Peggy Lee as I do, you must own this disc. A friend came over for dinner last night and we watched it afterward. He was transfixed, blown away.

Along with Ella Fitzgerald and maybe Barbra Streisand, Peggy Lee just may be the greatest female singer of them all. Her subtlety is unmatched. For Ella, the words were almost beside the point (a songwriter once remarked, "Why bother writing lyrics when Ella does so well without them?"). But for Peggy Lee, the words and the music are inseparable. She takes you to the inner core of a song like nobody else, and always leaves a touch of mystery, never overstating the case.

A delight, a treasure,in every way. The disc is one of the jewels in my collection.

Peggy Lee in Atlantic City
Michelle Russell | Pennsylvania | 01/09/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This Film was apparently done in Atlantic City about 1984. Sadly, Miss Lee has suffered through bad health and is not the woman she was. As a singer though, she is still great and includes many of her greatest hits including "Why Don't You Do Right", "Mannana", "I Don't Know Enough About You", "Johnny Guitar" and "Fever". As she goes on, she becomes younger and you see that the music means everything to her."
