Barbra Streisand Celebrates Release of New Jazz-Flavored Album,
Love Is The Answer, With Rare Club Show

In what promises to be a once-in-a lifetime thrill for a hundred of her luckiest fans, Barbra Streisand will celebrate the release of Love Is The Answer—her new album of jazz standards and classics— by singing a selection of these songs at New York’s legendary Village Vanguard, where she last performed in 1961 as the opening act for Miles Davis.

Free tickets to this history-making experience will be made available only to fans who either pre-order the new CD or register an entry blank free of charge. Full details and rules can be found on

Soon after her performance at the Vanguard some 48 years ago, Streisand began to build a reputation in Greenwich Village as an extraordinary newcomer on the scene, a not-to-be-missed star on the rise singing in clubs like The Lion and The Bon Soir. With its astounding acoustics and intimate vibe, The Village Vanguard–an epicenter of the New York jazz scene since an all-jazz policy was implemented in 1957– was, and is one of the most renowned musical venues throughout the world.
