The rare performer who achieved success in critical, artistic, and commercial terms. Dinah Washington was both the queen of the black jukebox and the consummate musicians’s musician. She was comfortable in virtually any musical context, but something special always happened when she surrounded herself with top-notch jazz musicians and let them wail.
After Hours With Miss “D,” featuring an extraordinary rhythm section and such outstanding soloists as Clark Terry, Paul Quinchette, and Eddie “Lockjaw” Davis, is one of Washington’s most jazz-oriented albums-and one of her most exciting.
