    The Duke and The Dawn

    Dawn Upshaw captures the quintessential Vernon Duke on this album. A collection of Dukes most well-know songs masterfully interpreted by Dawn Upshaw. Hints of Gershwin mix happily with Dukes essentially serious approach to create a scintillating album that is eloquent, uplifting, whimsical and downright sexy!
