Maggie Baird: “We Sail”

Eclectic album almost an extension of the Birds of Prey soundtrack—and then some

Singing Catwomen are nothing new. Eartha Kitt's biggest success was as a singer, and Niki Rubin, the purple-clad Catwoman, gave a concert in New York in summer 2009.

I was most surprised when I was contacted by, her recording company, about her new album, “We Sail.” And it is a pleasant surprise, because this eclectic album has some very interesting tracks. Among them:

Many of the other songs are acoustic in nature, and the album is like a continuation of the Birds of Prey soundtrack. And that is meant as a compliment. Not that this album is dependent on the 2002-2003 series. Not at all. But like the soundtrack, Ms. Baird's album has an appealing sound that is a welcome relief from so much of the noise that passes itself off as music these days.

Definitely recommended listening!
