Don't hold your breath about winning a ticket to her appearance at the  
Village Vanguard. The joint seats about 125 or so. Must be nostalgia  
thing. <grin>

Barbra Streisand to Appear at the Village Vanguard
NY Times - By Stephen Holden

Forty-eight years after she first appeared in the club opening for  
Miles Davis, Barbra Streisand will celebrate the release of “Love Is  
the Answer,” her new album of jazz and popular standards, by  
performing a selection of its songs at the Village Vanguard on Sept.  
26, according to her publicist, Ken Sunshine. The storied jazz club is  
a far cry in both size and atmosphere from Ms. Streisand’s usual  
settings, like the arenas where she played her last farewell tour in  
2006. A chance to get free tickets to the Vanguard shows will be  
available only to those who either pre-order the CD or register for a  
lottery online. Full details and rules can be found on  
The arrangements on “Love Is the Answer,” Ms. Streisand’s first new  
studio collection since 2005, are by Diana Krall and Johnny Mandel and  
feature members of Ms. Krall’s band. The album will be released Sept.
