The great jazz singer Dakota Staton made her album debut with "The Late, Late Show." This recording captures her sensational nightclub act. In her blues-like, somewhat misty voice, she runs the gamut of emotions in brightly swinging tunes to eloquently lyrical ballads.

Singer Dakota Staton's first full-length album was one of her best. She had a hit with "The Late, Late Show" and performed memorable versions of "Broadway," "A Foggy Day," "What Do You See in Her," "My Funny Valentine" and "Mooney." Backed by a largely unidentified orchestra arranged by Van Alexander (with Hank Jones on piano), Staton sounds both youthful and mature, displaying a highly appealing voice on a near-classic set. ~ Scott Yanow
