A Great Sampling Of Talent For Schuur

"Diane Schuur sings the standards and the jazz vocals like no other. Her very fine voice makes you feel the music.
"Love Dance" is the opening song. It sets the mood for spendid songs to follow. There is purity in Ms. Schuur's voice when she sings "The Very Thought Of You". Diane is gutsy in the hot, live version "Caught A Touch Of Your Love". Not since Liza Minnelli sang it has anyone sounded so soulful on "How Long Has This Been Going On". The same can be said about Judy Garland's "Come Rain Or Come Shine". Diane cooks this one to the max! Look out for Diane's funky vocal on "Louisiana Sunday Afternoon". And that saxophone! "Teach Me Tonight" is romantic and dreamy. The perfect choice for the finale is "I'll Close My Eyes". This vocal is perfection!
Nobody can quite match the vocal range and spectrum of moods that belong to Diane Schuur. This collection is a great sampler to begin with. Once you hear these songs, I'm certain you will want to "graduate" to some of her other cds."
