Favorite jazz album
I've been listening to big band for a few years now, and this remains my favorite. This band grooves so hard! My favorites are Travelin' Blues and Caught a Touch...
Another album I picked up on a friend's recommendation. Another dud for me. While I know Diane has a large following, I fail to find the appeal in her voice. To make matters worse, I get "Deedles' Blues" stuck in my head and I can't get it out. I'd much rather have some pop crap like Fergie stuck in my head. At least I can deal with her voice. Sorry, but this album is not for me.
A Live Recording
Most artists release live recordings of songs previously recorded, this album features songs not previously recorded by Diane. Recorded live, the finished result is a set with a very open sound. Diane sounds very much at ease here and the big band swings without overpowering her vocal. This album is a delight from start to finish and is best listened to in it's entirity.
