“Even though she's in the midst of the stellar soloists, Washington expertly works her supple voice throughout to remain the star attraction ... A fine disc with top. Arrangements by Quincy Jones.” (Stephen Cook)
This release presents all of the Dinah Washington selections from the monumental 1954 jam session on which she was backed by Clifford Brown, among many other stars. An instrumental track from the same session has been added as a bonus.
This CD offers practically all the material recorded in a splendid jam-session in front of an audience which took place in Los Angeles on August of 1954, featuring Clifford Brown, Clark Terry, Harold Land, Junior Mance, Max Roach and others. Includes eight standards, three of them (“You Go To My Head”, “Lover Come Back To Me”, and “I’ll Remember April”) in extensive versions with all the instrumentalists taking solos), and five versions more in line with what was habitual at that time, with special interventions of Brownie in "No More", Harold Land in "Darn That Dream", and Herb Geller in "Crazy He Calls Me".
Recorded in Los Angeles, August 14, 1954.
