Dinah Washington had long been known as the Queen of the Blues when she took steps toward the mainstream in the late '50s. What a Diff'rence a Day Makes not only placed the great singer firmly on the pop charts and permanently associated her with the near-title song, it proved again that her enormous vocal power and emotion were all but impossible to fence in. Washington's tart tone brought new dimensions to songs like "Cry Me a River" (a hit just a few years before in Julie London's version), "I Won't Cry Anymore," and "Time After Time," while also pointing the way for the ballad recordings Etta James would soon be making. This expanded edition includes three bonus tracks and a snippet of telling studio dialogue.
The songs of Dinah Washington bring back so many wonderful memories of my grandmother and remind me of the fun she, my mother and I always had together.
What a tourch singer
I would put Diane's voice up there among the great torch singers like Edith Piaf and Patsy Kline. What a joy to hear a voice as clear as a bell.
If there is such a category as "A perfect Singer," listeners need go no further than Dinah Washington. For vibrato, control, rhythm and mood, no singer is better. None.
Born: August 29, 1924 in Tuscaloosa, AL
