CD Reviews

Reinstilled my faith in live recordings
James Fenos | Columbus, OH United States | 02/14/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This album, released in 1987, was recorded in front of a live audience. Live recordings can sound harsh and the song selection is usually repeats of previous studio album and single cuts. This album is a collection of well recorded and performed songs not before, or since, recorded by Diane. There is an amazing energy throughout this entire cd. The audience sounds as if they were having the time of their lives, and you wish you were there. A favorite track for me is "Caught A Touch Of Your Love." Diane's vocals on this cut, and the Orchestra anticipating her delivery without competing with her makes it seem they've been together for years. This album is unusual due to the planning, it's more like a recording session in front of an audience as opposed to a concert recording. If concerts were this well planned out and recorded, I'd have a few more live recordings."
What voice, what a range!

"Buy it. You will not be disappointed. Diane is magical. The CBO is better than ever. "Only You" will blow you away."
Still gives me goosebumps...

"So I bought this album shortly after it came out. I was a fan of the Basie Orchestra even though I was young (31). I've always kicked myself because I had the opportunity to see them live in 1983 (when the Count was still alive) and let it slip away. When I first heard it I was not sure if I liked it; Diane Schurr's voice seemed "over the top" to me. This feeling soon vanished after I played it the first few times. I realized this album was a very special performance where it all comes together. As another reviewer mentioned "Only You" is amazing. The arrangement and performances are very special."
