Synopsis

Amazon.com
Dinah Washington had already enjoyed a career as a jazz and R&B singer when her 1959 recording of "What a Diff'rence a Day Makes" catapulted her to a new kind of popularity. Henceforth she would devote herself to singing ballads with orchestral backing. Though purists might object, the very gifts that distinguished her R&B singing remain in the later pop phase. Hers is one of the great sounds, a voice at once strong and breathy, with a focus that turns every note and every word into a richly nuanced event, uniquely shaped and loaded with meaning. --Stuart Broomer

Dinah Washington Was Unique
Terry Knapp | Santa Rosa, CA United States | 12/12/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I was only vaguely aware of Dinah Washington when I first heard her rendition of "What a Diff'rence a Day Made" about 15 or 20 years ago. With that song she reached out and took ahold of my body and soul. Listening to Washington is a truly transporting, rapturous experience, something (although I love and respect Sarah Vaughn and Ella Fitzgerald) I have only ever felt for one other performer - Lady Day herself. This album is as good a Dinah Washington primer as you are likely to find. Buy and enjoy!"
