Dakota Staton never broke through to become a household name, but her fine singing has made her a favorite with jazz, soul, and pop audiences for decades. This album captures her at her peak during a live performance. Her singing and rapport with her audience are pure magic.

Personnel: Dakota Staton (vocals); Norman Simmons (piano).
Liner Note Author: Andy Wiswell.
Recording information: Storyville, Boston, MA (04/29/1961).
This album features singer Dakota Staton at her best. Recorded live at Boston's Storyville, Staton sounds quite inspired on such numbers as "Is You Is or Is You Ain't My Baby," "Saturday Night Is the Loneliest Night of the Week," "When I Grow Too Old to Dream" (which spontaneously becomes a crowd singalong), "Mean and Evil Blues," and "Don't Get Around Much Anymore." Other than pianist Norman Simmons, the accompanying quartet is unidentified, but the man on tenor, flute, and (on "Music, Maestro, Please") oboe is obviously Yusef Lateef. An underrated gem. ~ Scott Yanow
