Love songs were Dinah Washington's specialty, so it's no surprise that this nicely compiled 11-song set is a winner back to front. Washington's wonderfully textured, utterly distinctive voice oozes heartbreak and longing, so much so that songs like "Make the Man Love Me" and "Teach Me Tonight" sound tailor-made for her. Lilting, seductive, and wrapped in sweet, tender melancholy, DINAH WASHINGTON FOR LOVERS is not only a great soundtrack for romance, but a fine sampler of the singer's peerless art.
