Muze PNote Dinah Washington had everything you could ask for in a singer--pitch, phrasing, diction, savvy, romanticism, humor, a voice golden or guttural, you name it. She was utterly comfortable in whatever style was called for that day, whether jazz, R&B, blues or pop. Her versatility is readily apparent on the series of classy "jazz" albums she recorded for Emarcy/Mercury from 1954 through 1959, till the enormous success of "What A Difference A Day Made" inspired Mercury to try to force her into a purely hit-making mold.
Muze PNote THE SWINGIN' MISS "D" was recorded in 1956 with 23-year-old Quincy Jones arranging. Jones was already an experienced hand with Dinah, since he wrote the charts for her lyrical FOR THOSE IN LOVE in 1954. As the full title states, MISS "D" is an altogether different affair--upbeat and crisply arranged, with Washington turning in one exhilarating tour de force performance after another. Expectedly, there are also exquisite ballad performances here like "Ev'ry Time We Say Goodbye," "I'll Close My Eyes" and the newly-written "Never Let Me Go." But it's the hard-driving charts (surperbly restored in a Verve Master Edition) that show Miss D to such advantage on this particular day.

Producer: Bob Shad

Artist Overview

Despite a relatively short career--she died in 1963 at the age of 39--Dinah Washington laid claim to being one of the major jazz voices, and one of the most versatile of all jazz singers. Her voice was rich; she filled everything she sang with heartfelt emotion, and she could make even material of less than stellar quality sound deeply moving. More importantly, she was equally at home (and had hits) with blues, popular songs of the day, and standards; toward the end she also became a major voice of the burgeoning soul movement.
