Perhaps the greatest of all jazz blues singers, Dinah Washington sang with a tough, rarely sentimental, and gritty approach, yet her voice was always warm, yearning, and even vulnerable. Compiled by Abby Lincoln (herself a noted jazz singer), on ULTIMATE DINAH WASHINGTON Washington performs tunes from both small group and orchestral sessions dating back to the '40s and '50s.
On "I Could Write a Book," Washington is teamed up with a nonet featuring Clark Terry (trumpet) and Paul Quinichette (sax), but on tunes such as "Unforgettable" and "What a Difference a Day Makes" we hear her singing over a lush string ensemble. On all of these tracks, Washington sings with a sharp emotional sting, always avoiding sappiness or schmaltziness. Undoubtedly the definitive Dinah Washington greatest hits record, ULTIMATE DINAH WASHINGTON represents the singer in her prime, before she ventured off into straight R&B and middle-of-the-road pop.
