This album celebrates Diane Schuur's 35-year career since being discovered by Stan Getz in 1979 at the Monterey Jazz Festival, as well as her 60th birthday! She is a two-time Grammy winner for Best Jazz Vocal Performance. All songs are compositions previously recorded by her two mentors, Stan Getz and Frank Sinatra.
Some listeners are going to enjoy the straight-ahead renditions more than the intrusions of Getz and Sinatra, while others will dig the spice. Either way, the album provides a rich sampling of what Schuur can do with a small group jazz backup in an intimate studio setting. And it has all the vitality and energy that we expect from Schuur at her best.
