5.0 out of 5 stars Such bliss..., August 17, 2011

This review is from: Sophisticated Ladies (Audio CD)
I am a music fan of all genres, well almost all, as long as my ears agree with the melody. This is really a thrilling album and one for keep. What makes this even more special are the singers who are very gracious in lending their voices to accompany this marvellous quartet.

I must applaud Charlie Haden Quartet West by carefully selecting and inviting some of the finest songstresses to be featured in this truly sophisticated album.

Melody Gardot in the first track, Norah Jones with her "Ill Wind", Cassandra Wilson caressing the tune of "My Love And I", Ruth Cameron's superb rendition of "Let's Call It A Day", "A Love Like These" featuring Renée Fleming and finally Diana Krall's "Goodbye".

I admit the only reason I bought this is because of the six very fine contemporary jazz singers. Renée Fleming, Cassandra Wilson, Norah Jones, Ruth Cameron, Melody Gardot and Diana Krall. It's a dream comes true! Surprisingly, I am also beginning to enjoy the quartet's timeless jazz and blues instrumental tracks as well.

Every singers have their own interpretations on how to tackle their respective tracks. The one that stick to my mind right now is Ruth Cameron's "Let's Call it a Day".
Dim the lights and enjoy...

Good review. Thanks for singling out Ruth Cameron's LET'S CALL IT A DAY. That one, and the opening track by Melody Gardot are my favorites. But it changes, with each listening.

Tried to leave a "helpful" -- hope my vote takes. But then . . . under Amazon's reviewer rankings/voting system, this very "comment" makes me your "fan" (I suppose I am!) and fan votes don't count. Go figure. Keep writing, Ben.
