Album Review

Neither an innovator nor a clone of anyone, Diane Hubka combines an enthusiasm for the singers of jazz's Cool School (especially Chris Connor and June Christy) with traces of Annie Ross and Sheila Jordan on the tasteful Haven't We Met?. But while Jordan can be aggressive at times, Hubka is a vocalist who thrives on restraint. Not a belter, the Maryland native swings in a relaxed, subtle fashion on tasteful, good-natured interpretations of material ranging from "Alone Together" and "Lazy Afternoon" (which is especially Connor-minded) to Antonio Carlos Jobim's "Favela." To her credit, Hubka doesn't limit her repertoire to obvious choices. "Everybody Wants to Be a Cat" hardly falls into the warhorse category, and Johnny Carisi's "Israel" (for which she embraces lyrics by Ray Passman) hasn't been done to death by singers. Joined by alto saxman Lee Konitz (a logical choice given his Cool School membership), pianist Frank Kimbrough, guitarist John Hart, bassist Harvie Swartz and drummer Ron Vincent, Hubka makes Haven't We Met? a CD that, although not groundbreaking or fantastic, is generally pleasant and honest.
