A warm and sunny "Day"
John Jones | Chicago IL | 07/17/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)
"Sometimes keeping it simple is the best way to go, and Dianne Reeves proves that notion on "That Day...," a warm and organic work that boasts subtle arrangements, tasteful vocals, and the most seductive of moods. Things are off to a sultry start with the most gorgeous arrangment of "Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow" ever recorded; a Bossa Nova-esque rhythm and stellar piano and horns lay the foundation while Reeves' masterful vocal builds the track to the sky. The pop chestnut "Just a Little Lovin" lights a quiet fire and begs to be cuddled to, and the title track benefits from a racy-but-tasteful lyric and a seductive samba flavor.Elsewhere, Joan Armatrading's "Dark Truths" gets a stately, elegant reading, and the jazz standards "Blue Prelude" and "Exactly Like You" manage to swing without breaking up the slow, even pace of the record. The back-porch blues of "Ain't Nobody's Business if I Do" is a bit of a surprise at the end, and you realize that the album could have used a little more guitar elsewhere (or even a Rhodes keyboard) to shake things up a bit. But with Reeves' vocals sounding this mature and skillful, this amounts to a petty argument about an otherwise strong outing. Fans of well-crafted jazz ballads in search of their next purchase need look no further."
Still one of the best...

"After several years of play, I still find this album to be as beautiful as the day I bought it. For me, the highlights include her cover of "Twelfth of Never" and "Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow". "That Day" is also worth a listen. In fact, why am I picking out individual songs? The whole album is stunning and I can't recommend it highly enough."

"I've been listening to Ms. Reeves music for 20 years now. Im a big fan of hers. I've seen a lot of her concerts in the US and here in Europe. "That Day" album is superb, very Dianne. To Dianne: I wish you more power! I love you."
