CD Reviews

Underrated and magnificent.
Jay Matthews | Illinois | 03/31/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Dinah has to be one of the most underrated performers of the 20th Century. Billie, Ella and Sarah continue to garner well-deserved admiration, but Dinah is often forgotten. Perhaps her choice of material was too diverse (blues, R&B, jazz, pop) to please either jazz purists or pop music fans. But her voice, phrasing and style are superb. Her voice has a vinegary edge and an emotional impact that were no doubt shaped by her difficult, reckless life but it also has warmth and soul that are wonders to hear. Genuine, moving and magnificent music."
What a difference

"Yesterday afternoon I was moved in a rare way. I was at a little diner when the radio cut out on the speakers and a new tune started. Someone had popped a quarter into the jukebox and Dinah Washington's voice started "What a difference.." A silence fell in the place as people listened. What a difference. Dinah's voice transported me to a different time. A different pace. Each phrase perfect and honest. What a difference."
For lovers of music: lessons in life and love...

"this is pure mysticism!!
somethin raw in her voice hooks you with a clarity for life and love... if you love your female jazz vocalists, then this is somethin necessary, like a lung... if you're unfamiliar with dinah and would like to get to know what she is about, then get this... there is maturity here that you will sometime need in your personal life; that's not to say you MUST have it, just sayin that you SHOULD...."
