When she wants to sing jazz, Dianne Reeves has always had the ability to reach the top of her field. This Blue Note release finds her 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.

Highly recommended. Scott Yanow/AMG
