“Diane Schuur is one of those rare singers, like Sinatra and Judy Garland, both superb vocalist and alluring entertainer. Through standards from the great American songbook, her singing conjures the emotions that burn in our hearts, wild romance and the thirst for love and happiness. Ms. Schuur embraces this music with artistic integrity and deep respect for the lyrics, giving true meaning to the elegance and swing of both Sinatra and Getz.” (Brent Black, Bop-N-Jazz Review)
