Format: Audio CD
It doesn't happen often enough, but every once in a while a new jazz singer will emerge with all of the classic elements associated with the genre: stellar phrasing, authentic emotion, tasteful inflection, and expertise at selecting appropriate material. Such elements are on hand for Dianne Reeves' self-titled 1987 debut.
You'd be hard-pressed to find a smoother, classier reading of the jazz chestnut "Yesterdays," and the frantically-paced "That's All" features some of the best scatting this side of Ella Fitzgerald. Especially impressive is her reading of "I Got it Bad and That Ain't Good," as Reeves lets her voice caress the lyric with a light touch. A less instinctual vocalist might have attacked the entire post-solo second bridge, but Dianne builds to a belt only when the lyrics read "crying my heart out," accenting just the right moment.
This isn't to say traditionally-arranged standards is where Reeves begins and ends, however; a true master can take on a pop-flavored piece and twist, turn, and innovate until the end result is undeniably jazz, and Dianne proves her mettle on Herbie Hancock's "Harvest Time," Stevie Wonder's "Never Said (Chan's Song)," and the sweetly sentimental "Better Days." Additionally, "Sky Islands" (which Reeves co-wrote) has a multi-layered feel...part samba, part fusion, and all gorgeous.
But to get the entire picture of Reeves' vocal range, look no further than the intoxicating ballad "I'm OK"...as she opens the piece, singing "the winters of my life/they've been around so long..." it's clear that we are witnessing the arrival of an artist who knows her way around a lyric.

Although I haven't heard all of D's work, I've heard a lot. Out of all that I've heard, this one is clearly her best. Her silky full dynamic voice epitimizes the definition of a true Soprano with range. In addition to her vocal skills, the lyrical content is top notch. If you're a fan of D's, this CD is a must have!

This is the CD that made me a fan of Miss Reeves. The remake of here own "Better Days" is the best song. She uses her writing skills at best on "Sky Island" a song that takes you in song to a Jazzy Island. "I Got It Bad" take you back to a time when jazz was all heart yet, keeps you in tune with todays influences. I had the chance to see her do a tribute to Carman McCray singing "Yesterday". This version is great but nothing comes close to he live shows. This Cd is a must have.

I first purchased this audio CD while stationed at Clark Air Base, Philippines. I had to have another copy so I re-purchased it while I was here at Fort Bliss, Texas. Dianne Reeves has an awesome voice. I really had to see what kind of workout experience I could have listening to this CD. It was so perfect to be in one of the most beautifully scenic places on earth and listen to Dianne Reeves sing this wonderful music. Such a perfect combination. Wonderful music. Cheers!

This is a rare album. "Better Days" is a hauntingly soulful ballads with a hook that just won't let go. And "Chan's Song" is a beautifully crafted vocal rendition of Herbie Hancock's masterpiece. I had this album as a cassette tape years ago, and wore out the magnetism. Now I think I'll have to get it on CD. Just can't live without it.

I have this actual album as well as in cassette tape form but we all know that both medias are now prehistoric so it was hard finding it in digital format but I am glad that I found it on Amazon. I love Dianne Reeves!
