For this excellent 1961 outing, jazz vocalist Dinah Washington is backed by an orchestra on all but one track. Washington's expressive singing is complemented by the rich, full sound here, and this is due, at least in part, to the intuitive conducting of Quincy Jones, who also arranges many of the tunes. On string-laden renditions of Billie Holiday's "Don't Explain" and "God Bless the Child," Washington evokes the spirit of Lady Day, but places her own stamp on the songs with her delicate phrasing. Clark Terry lends his soulful trumpet playing to a handful of tracks, including the gently swaying "Everybody's Somebody's Fool," but, overall, Jones's orchestra provides the atmosphere here, quietly simmering behind Washington's voice until just the right dramatic moment. Previously available only on vinyl, I WANNA BE LOVED has been carefully remastered for this Mercury/Verve CD reissue, which is a welcome addition to any jazz-vocal collection.
