    Radiant and inspired

    Dianne Reeves seems to find great joy singing these pieces. I wouldn't try to chaperone a musical artist's style or even wish that someone like Dianne Reeves would only sing jazz. I feel that I am hearing the words of the these familiar songs for the first time when I listen to Dianne Reeves. I love jazz and appreciate this album. A strong, clear and powerful voice...lovely music!
