Diane Schuur is a very terrific singer. She can move from blues to gospel into jazz with the appearance that it is effortless for her to do so. She has a tremendous ability to belt out a song when necessary, but can also change into a torch singer and frankly some of her best work would have to be termed as jazz. She can pierce straight to the heart with a song like "Ill Close My Eyes." Diane Schuur is one of my favorites and i guess that explains why i am trying to collect all of her work. Diane has great taste in the selection of her arrangers, because the tunes she sings have been carefully selected and arranged so that she is showcased to her best advantage. I always eagerly look forward to any new album she has on the cd racks.

You won't believe your ears! "I'll Close My Eyes" is masterful. "Teach Me Tonight" is a gorgeous classic. "New York State of Mind" has soulful style. "Reverend Lee" and "Can't Stop a Woman in Love are cookers! "Amazing Grace" will blow you away! Every cut is brilliant. She completely demonstrates her vocal range and ability to sing any and every style. Diane Shuur transends all culturals, her soul is deep, her voice is p-l-e-a-s-u-r-e. This CD is a must-have.

I never heard of Diane until she duetted with Barry Manilow on his 1987 release "Swing Street." I thought theirs was a great pairing, and I fell in love with Diane. I was somewhat limited in my collection space for cd's and the only album I owned of Diane's was "Collection" released two years after Barry's "Swing Street."
I was in a small Cafe in Cincinnati, where I grew up and stayed until my late twenties, and I heard the familiar opening bars of "New York State Of Mind" someone had selected from the cd jukebox. I didn't really think anything of it, the song's been covered so many times. Then the voice I fell in love with started singing the opening lines, I stopped eating to listen to this song and beat myself up for not knowing of its existance. I went to the record store and small space be damned, bought the album (cd) the same day, and have been collecting ever since.
Diane was living and performing as a local artist in Seattle, Washington when she was discovered by Nancy Reagan. Diane, with her late mentor Stan Getz, performed at the White House and was signed to GRP shortly thereafter. To capture Diane's vocal at her most comfortable, the lead vocal and rhythm tracks were recorded in her home city, then flown to California for additional recording, mixing and mastering. The end result is the excellent debut album. Diane's vocal performane is flawless, the post production not overdone, the song selection perfect. "Teach Me Tonight" is reborn, the song reappears on "Collection." "New York State Of Mind" is second to the original and overlooked for "Collection," it's artistic integrity is vindicated due to its appearance on her "The Very Best Of.

The 1980's were a very strange time for the jazz world. There were more schools than ever now to deal with. You had the young lions such as Wynton Marsalis who were the toast of Downbeat magazine and were firm acoustic traditionalists,a multitude of people still devoted to the jazz genre and still others spinning off from that into the beginnings of smooth jazz as well as legacy musicians such as Dizzy Gillespie and such who were still performing in many different styles. Early in the decade Dave Grusin's GRP label was producing music in all of these subgenres and in 1984 they recieved a highly gifted vocalist who would be more influential on the future of jazz vocalists up until the current day such as Dianne Krall and Jane Monheit. And her name was Diane Schuur.

A discovery of Stan Getz,who two decades earlier had baught us the popular Brazillian vocalist Astrid Gilberto,Schuur is one of the finest and most versitle interpretive singer of jazz during this decade. As with her forebearers such as Billy Holiday,Sarah Vaughn,Dinah Washington and Anita O'Day Schuur had an incredible vocal instrument easily capable not only on bending notes in the manner of a horn,including all the shouts and growls involved but also in moving from jaz balladry to bluesy styles and even dollops of contemporary funk/R&B without losing a beat. A good deal of these songs are standards such as "The Very Thought Of You","Teach Me Tonight","I'll Close My Eyes","I'm Just Fooling Myself" and "Can't Stop A Woman In Love"-all of which feature both acoustic and digital electronic instrumentation used in the most appealing fasion to accentuate her amazing scaling vocal turns.

This is an album I got back in 85, but I lost it 15 years ago. I am happy that Deedles is back in sale again.
Deedles brings out the best from Diane Schuur and it is probably the best "soft Jazz" album I have in my collection.
The highlite to me is Amazing grace, a brilliant version of this great song.
