Reseña de álbum
Not quite as fine as Sarah Vaughan's Compact Jazz disc, this Verve roundup still nicely frames Dinah Washington's stay at the label with a fetching array of her best cuts from the '50s and early '60s. Taking in some of Washington's best-known pop songs ("What a Difference a Day Makes"), the disc touches on her excellent Fats Waller ("Keepin' out of Mischief Now") and Bessie Smith ("Backwater Blues") songbooks, while also including something from a fiery live date with Clifford Brown ("I've Got You Under My Skin"). And this is not to forget a handful of finely gauged readings of such perennials as "Smoke Gets in Your Eyes," "Easy Living," and "I Could Write a Book." Topped off with fine support by a bevy of top players, Compact Jazz: Dinah Washington makes for the ideal introductory disc.

This was my introduction to Dinah Washington and it was 'love at first sound'. She makes even great songs even greater with her own inimitable style. Her version of Smoke Gets in Your Eyes is the best I've heard. The live version of Backwater Blues is fantastic, and Teach me Tonight is superlative. You really can't beat this collection.
A great sampler of Dinah!
This was my introduction to the music of Dinah Washington. A great samling of songs from a voice you can't forget.
I found my her!!!
I've been looking for Jazz female artist that gives me that sets my soul on fire. I finally found her! She's simply briliant! I have heard all the so-called greats, but for me Washington is better than the great.
