    Barbra Streisand will release her new album Live At The Bon Soir on November 4th. The previously unreleased record will be available both digitally and on CD and comprises a total of 24 tracks that were recorded in 1962 at the former New York club Bon Soir.

    The tracks were remixed and produced by Streisand, Martin Erlichman and Jay Landers. With “Cry Me A River – Live at the Bon Soir” a first harbinger of the new record was released on September 23, which follows the compilation “Release Me 2” (2021). Live At The Bon Soir was originally planned as a debut album, but the singer later decided to archive the recordings. When Streisand performed at the Bon Soir, she was accompanied by a quartet of Tiger Haynes (guitar), Averill Pollard (bass), Joe Cresci (drums) and Peter Daniels (piano).

    “I am overjoyed to bring them to light”

    In her liner notes, she explains, “I sang two songs in a talent show at a little club called The Lion and I won. This led to an engagement at a slightly better establishment just around the corner, which even had a stage and spotlights – the Bon Soir. Word got around that we were playing Bon Soir and eventually I signed with Columbia in 1962. We had planned to record my first album at the club and the tapes sat dormant in my archive for sixty years. I’m overjoyed to bring them to light.”
