Dianne Reeves – I Remember


Dianne Reeves has always had the ability to reach the top of her field, but she has long seemed unable to make up her mind between jazz, R&B, world music, and pop. This Blue Note disc fortunately finds her mostly sticking to jazz and in consistently superb form. Reeves’ treatments of such numbers as “Afro Blue” (which is particularly memorable), “Love for Sale,” “Softly As in a Morning Sunrise,” “How High the Moon,” and McCoy Tyner’s “You Taught My Heart to Sing” all border on the classic. Joined by such illustrious sidemen as pianists Billy Childs, Mulgrew Miller, and Donald Brown; bassists Charnett Moffett and Chris Severin; and drummers Billy Kilson and Marvin “Smitty” Smith, plus guest appearances by vibraphonist Bobby Hutcherson, altoist Greg Osby, and guitarist Kevin Eubanks, Reeves sounds inspired by the company. If only she would stick to this direction. Highly recommended. (cduniverse)

    Thanks for this one. I first heard this great singer on the sound track to the movie “Goodnight and Good Luck”. She can easily run shivers up and down my spine.
