[HER NAME IS VEGA] Over the past three years, folk-pop mainstay Suzanne Vega has been in self-reflection mode. During that time, she has released a series of albums under the title Close-Up where she takes songs from throughout her storied career and re-records them with new arrangements and, in some cases, a complete upending of tone. It doesn’t negate the strides she has made over the course of 36 years as a performing artist—including a top-10 single with 1987’s “Luka.” This series of albums simply emphasizes the strength and beauty of Vega’s work and how those qualities remain strong no matter how the songs are interpreted.
