Format: Audio CD
Not sure if recording Dinah Washington with a full set of violin strings was a good idea, but any doubts is mostly put to rest when Dinah starts to sing. Any syrupy goo is mostly swiped away by the urgency and biting clarity of Ms. Washington's singing. On some selections, Dinah's interpretations are so on-target that the listener is left in amazement. She retains the great jazz elements of timing, control and phrasing that leave a lot of pretenders in the dust. Despite critical bashing Dinah took for "forsaking" her blues roots when she made these sides, her artistry remains intact. The blues-tinged flavor very much pervades numbers such as "These Foolish Things" "Me and the One I Love" and my favorite, "If It's the Last Thing I Do". Still, on some songs the overwhelming power of the violins is too much. One wish the producers of this record has included more variety in the arrangements besides the typical Ray Coniff style that was popular at the time. But Dinah's voice makes this CD almost a 5-star rating, but not quite.

Don Costa and Dinah...sometimes it works and sometimes it all sounds the same but it is an interesting attempt to marry two diverse artists to see if a new sound and tone could be produced. It seems that Dinah is phoning it in a lot of the time here and her talk singing seems to predominate her vocals, but Don Costa, like Billy May and Peter Matz could make Jackie Moms Mabley sound good. Not quite the gem that Billie's LADY IN SATIN is when it comes to a legit effort to produce commercially successful records, but knowing Dinah's history it isnt a bad effort. I once asked Jonathan Schwartz why she had imploded so young he told me that a new sound was coming up, mainly Nancy Wilson and Dinah couldnt or wouldnt adapt to the public taste in music. He said simply that she was scared. Another woman of color from humble beginnings who can tear your heart out and continues to generate new fans but had so many demons that she couldnt manage to love herself the way we did. Sometimes I feel guilty for listening to these divas and getting such and emotional charge from them, but beileve me, they are the losers here...give and give and give and make millions adore you but cant get yourself together. It seems that way with all truly great artists. RIP Dinah.
