Review: Jane Krakowski's CD "The Laziest Gal In Town"

If you're looking for an album to lose yourself in, then I'd suggest picking up Jane Krakowski's "The Laziest Gal In Town," recorded at her 2009 Feinstein's at the Regency cabaret debut. This live recording feels as if you've been whisked out of your seat and transported to Feinstein's at the Regency, one of the most intimate and personable nightclubs in New York City.

With a beautiful voice and controlled belt, Jane knows how to deliver a tune and interact with the audience using her humor, sensuality, and sultriness at just the right moments. "The Laziest Gal In Town," "I'm Old Fashioned/Old Fashioned Girl," and "Let's Face The Music And Dance" allow Jane's pristine voice to sparkle. Bringing out her more humorous/fun side are the tunes "A Little Brains, A Little Talent," "Diamonds Are A Girl's Best Friend," "When I Get Low I Get High/Wacky Dust," "Rubber Duckie," and "Tweet," a song written specifically for Jane by Scott Whitman and fellow "Adaumbelle's Quest" participant Marc Shaiman to the tune of "Zip" from "Pal Joey." Jane sings about the infusion of twitter into everyday life along with announcing the latest celebrity headlines that were taking place during the time of recording. "An Englishman Needs Time,"  "My Handy Man," and "Thirteen Men" brings out Jane sultriness & sensuality.

Far from being "The Laziest Gal In Town," Jane has entertained audiences on such hit television shows as "Ally McBeal" and "30 Rock" as well as on stage "Guys and Dolls," the 2003 Broadway revival of "Nine" (for which she won the Tony Award for Best Featured Actress in a Muscial) and at Encores! "Damn Yankees" (which starred Cheyenne Jackson). Now would be the perfect time to expand your love for Jane Krakowski and purchase "The Laziest Gal In Town." Both relaxing and upbeat, this feel good album is one for your collection.
