Some mysteries really do last a lifetime. Jazz singer Claudia Thompson debuted with Goodbye to Love in 1959, making it her first and only album to ever grace the public’s ears. Alluring and mysterious, Claudia Thompson’s album remains as a testament to the singer’s stunning voice.

“Goodbye to Love is both a collection of re-envisioned Jazz standards, crafted with a delicate touch and more importantly, introduces this young ingenue and highlights Claudia Thompson’s soulful voice to the world. On ‘Gloomy Sunday,’ Thompson’s rendition is accompanied by a plaintive, soft, Spanish-inflected guitar, courtesy of famed guitarist Barney Kessel, that accentuates her measured vocal performance, suggesting that she understands the importance of this song. She makes this version, first recorded by Billie Holiday, her own through this softness, replacing the serrated, wisened edges of Holiday’s delivery by embodying a quiet desperation to recapture the love of a lost one. Thompson is careful about her vocal inflections, adding a nuance that allows the listener to dream of being with her, wanting to know who she is and why she is so lonely. Her desire is palatable, yet there is something in her voice that suggests that this woman has lived a life full of emotional entanglements and disappointments.” – Laina Dawes
