Crackling with charisma, this 1954 release presents the Queen of the Blues in her most spirited session. As Washington flaunts her versatility on brassy standards, her killer backing combo (Clifford Brown, Max Roach, Clark Terry, Harold Land, and Maynard Ferguson) almost steals the show. But there’s only one star here—Washington’s performance is a spectacle of explosive power and emotion. Check out "You Go to My Head" and the final chorus of "Lover Come Back to Me,” where the legendary singer blows the roof off the studio.
One of my favorites. Although the divine Ms. Washington is more known for sultry hits like "What A Difference A Day Made" and "Teach Me Tonight", this, to me, is the album that shows off why she's a true orginal. With "There Is No Greater Love", she demonstrates the full power of her voice, and after you hear her version of "You Go To My Head," the tempo changes, her approach, no other version of the song exists. NO TRUE JAZZ FAN LOSES WITH THIS RECORD.
