PLAY: Barbra Streisand, "One Night Only: Barbra Streisand and Quartet at the Village Vanguard" [CD/DVD]

New York's Village Vanguard has been home to jazz legends since 1957. Barbra Streisand's last gig at the Vanguard was in 1962 when the then 20 year old was working out the kinks in her nightclub act and already becoming the darling of the gay community. Babs came back to her old haunt in September 2009 for a rare club date with some close personal friends, including Bill & Hillary Clinton, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Nicole Kidman. Streisand even invited the former waiter who scored her an audition at the Vanguard nearly 50 years ago. It's hard not to get caught up in the history of the event. And it's hard to not be impressed by those pipes. Barbra Streisand wrote the book for every pop diva to come. "One Night Only" is a reminder of where X-Tina, Beyonce, and all the others will end up — if they're lucky.
