Somwhere Whitman Is Smiling

A wonderful melding of Whitman's words and the artform of Jazz. A 2 cd set at just under 100 minutes, Diall & Oatts offer the most bang for your buck that's come arond in a while. Highlights include :To One Shortly To Die", featuring Terre Roche on vocals, a song celebrating death as inevitable and beautiful, that ends with a tempo shift from ballad to swinging 3/4 and the chourus singing gleefully, "I do not commiserate, I congratulate you." It is followed by "Sometimes With One I Love", a lovely bossa nova to Whitman's proclamation that there is no such thing as unreturned love. "Yet out of that I have written these songs" may be the defining line of the entire cd. The beautiful "Reconciliation with it's operatic baritone sung by LaMarcus Miller and fantastic piano by Dial has a moodiness tha reminds me of Mingus' "Goodbye Pork Pie Hat". The cd closes with "O You Whom I Often And Silently Come", showing the shared roots of blues, gospel, and jazz and perfectly linking Whitman's work to all mankind. An extremely uplifting experience with each of the many listens I've given to this cd in the short time that I've had it. Somewhere Whitman is smiling.
