Dinah Jams
Leslie A. Cooper | 01/25/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"What a thrill it is for me to have this CD after all those years of listening to it on Hi-Fi vinyl! I had no idea that Dinah Jams was out on CD with 3 bonus tracks. In my opinion, this recording is one of the best representations of live 1950's jazz ever made. Dinah Washington is backed by a stellar band containing a veritable who's who of jazz greats. This recording contains many moments of sheer musical genius. Be prepared to have your socks knocked off!"
Nothin' Could Be Finah Than Dinah

"I admit to a very spotty interest in jazz over my life time and while I have always loved those 1940's swing bands, like that of Benny Goodman, it was only with the celebration of the centennial of Duke Ellington's birth in 1999 that I got a little more serious about this genre. Ken Burns' "Jazz" series for PBS gave me another boost. Still and all there are huge gaps in my knowledge and appreciation of the classic jazz tradition. This is a little odd in that there is a certain convergence between jazz and my favorite musical genre, the blues. The artist under review here exemplifies both those traditions, although she was not known as a jazz singer, as such. All I know is I like what I hear here.

And what is that? Well, how about a very salacious "Lover Come Back To Me", a heartfelt turn on the Johnny Mercer tune "Come Rain Or Come Shine", a seemingly created for her style Cole Porter classic " I've Got You Under My Skin" and a knock out "You Go To My Head". Hell, even if you don't know a thing about jazz you know Dinah has got that "thing".
Dinah Jams - Excellent Jazz

"Dinah Jams was recorded at an "after hours club" in Los Angeles in the early morning hours after a Saturday Night concert date in 1954. Some of the best jazz musicians of all time were in the session. Dinah was "wailing", as only she could. The first track of her signature song "Blue Skies" lasts nearly ten minutes, and is like a glass of the finest wine on an end-of-summer afternoon. It just doesn't get any better."
