Classic Divas, indeed! The personality, style, and verve that a great female singer can imbue a song with can induce a truly thrilling sensation. This joyous rush comes fast and stays steady throughout this terrific collection featuring ten of American music’s most illustrious jazz and popular song stylists. Whether the singer is a pure jazz thrush (Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughn, Billie Holiday), a popular songstress (Judy Garland), or someone who falls into the stylistic gaps (Keely Smith, Nancy Wilson, Lena Horne), the resulting artistry remains on the same elevated level. Superlative interpretations aligned with gold-standard song selection (representing timeless composers including Ellington, Berlin, and Arlen) transform Classic Divas into a compact lesson in the art of inspired vocalizing, as edifying as it is enjoyable.
