Product Description:

Recorded between 1946 & 1962.
Dinah Washington could sing any song and make it sound like everybody's life depended on it. An awe-inspiring jazz vocalist with roots in the R&B scene of the 1940s, she gradually evolved into a pop star during the '50s and would have matured marvelously were it not for an accidental prescription drug overdose that took her out at the age of 39 on December 14, 1963. In 1999, the Recall reissue label came out with Smoke Gets in Your Eyes, a 40-track best-of anthology devoted to Dinah Washington's mature works involving both small and large jazz bands, the soulful organ combo and the occasional string section. This excellent sampler will work nicely both as an introduction to Dinah Washington and an all-purpose emergency ration for those who want to be able to hear her amazing voice at all hours of the day and night. ~ arwulf arwulf
