Album Review

Bea Wain's gorgeous voice is marvelously reproduced and celebrated on Jasmine's My Reverie, a fabulous compendium of classic big band recordings dating from 1937-1941. Backed by the orchestras of Larry Clinton, Artie Shaw and Leonard Joy, this charming woman demonstrates her ability to handle each and every song with uncontrived style and finesse.

Songs of a romantic nature undergo a magical transformation; "Deep Purple" and "I Didn't Know What Time It Was" become arrestingly beautiful, while "Dancing in the Dark" might well cause susceptible listeners to abandon all worldly attachments and responsibilities in order to worship the voice of Wain by playing this one song — "Dancing in the Dark," words by Howard Dietz, music by Arthur Schwartz — over and over again for the rest of time.
