I must be hearing a different CD than the first reviewer. I LOVED "The Dana Owens Album", and had hoped Latifah would do another like it. These renditions of classic songs get better as you listen. I love a contemporary take on a song that has been done before. Shes got the pipes for this material, and I hope she records every old "and new" song she likes. I'll buy them.

I don't think that the first reviewer fairly rated this cd. Queen Latifah is not trying to be like Dinah, Etta and whoever else. She sings these songs obviously because she loves this genre of music. With this cd and the Dana Owens cd, she is opening the minds of the youth who listen to her music and she is showing them that there are dozens of other types of music out there. I love this cd and I applaud Queen Latifah for doing something that she loves!

Before her last CD, The Dana Owens Story, I wasn't a fan of the Queen but that CD showed me that Queen had matured in her career to expand to a more mature audience. And with this CD she has shown me that some things do improve with age. I feel as though this is a very eclectic CD ranging from jazz and big band to easy listening and the funky, Betcha Gotta Chick on the Side, and with I Know Where I've Been, which I am listening to as I am typing this she has taken my respect for her talent to a new level. I beleive that she has something here for any and everybody. As I said in my intro, "listen for yourself". peace

Wonderful easy listening music. She does "her" thing recapping early versions. Beautiful voice and style. Buy It! You will be overwhelmed.

She's no Etta, Sarah, etc. The original versions of these artists are so much better. I think she should stay with her rapping. But, listen to the music samples listed here and decide for yourself.
