Dinah Shore was an American singer, actress, television personality, and the top-charting female vocalist of the 1940s. She reached the height of her popularity as a recording artist during the Big Band era of the 1940s and 1950s, but achieved even greater success a decade later, in television, mainly as hostess of a series of variety programs for Chevrolet. An album I've had for awhile - bought it back when I first started listening to my favorite local radio station, KAAM, when their catch phrase was "The Music of Your Life". At that time, it was mostly "big bands and great singers", and they still play a lot of that, but they also include more recent songs that fit into that particular format. Anyway, I vaguely remember Dinah Shore's TV program from the 1970s. I don't think I ever watched it, but I remember it was on. Most of all I remember that she was dating Burt Reynolds in the 70s - it was kind of a big deal because he was 20 years younger. And of course, there's the famous Dinah Shore Weekend now - lots of women and lots of golf. Well, these are all familiar songs and Dinah sings them wonderfully. I think I bought this at HPB, and it was pretty scratched up.

One of America's most popular entertainers long after her mid-'40s commercial peak, Dinah Shore was the first major vocalist to break away from the big-band format and begin a solo-billed career. During the '40s, she recorded several of the decade's biggest singles — "Buttons and Bows," "The Gypsy," and "I'll Walk Alone" — all of which spent more than a month at number one on the Hit Parade. After launching a television variety series in 1951, Shore appeared on one program or another, with few gaps, into the 1980s.

While maintaining her status as a television star, Dinah Shore made a series of classy albums for Capitol Records between 1959 and 1962. On this, the fourth of her five LPs for the label, she again teamed with André Previn, who had arranged and conducted her earlier album, Somebody Loves Me. This time, Previn took to the piano, joined only by an occasional rhythm section for another set of ballads (or, as the sleeve note put it, "songs in a mid-night mood"). They included standards by the Gershwins, Rodgers & Hart and others, and Shore handled them with more than her usual warmth; she smoldered. The result was a concept album that ranks with some of Frank Sinatra's.

Dinah Washington was at once one of the most beloved and controversial singers of the mid-20th century - beloved to her fans, devotees, and fellow singers; controversial to critics who still accuse her of selling out her art to commerce and bad taste. Her principal sin, apparently, was to cultivate a distinctive vocal style that was at home in all kinds of music, be it R&B, blues, jazz, middle of the road pop - and she probably would have made a fine gospel or country singer had she the time. Hers was a gritty, salty, high-pitched voice, marked by absolute clarity of diction and clipped, bluesy phrasing. Washington's personal life was turbulent, with seven marriages behind her, and her interpretations showed it, for she displayed a tough, totally unsentimental, yet still gripping hold on the universal subject of lost love…

Sidney Bechet was the first important jazz soloist on records in history (beating Louis Armstrong by a few months). A brilliant soprano saxophonist and clarinetist with a wide vibrato that listeners either loved or hated, Bechet's style did not evolve much through the years but he never lost his enthusiasm or creativity. A master at both individual and collective improvisation within the genre of New Orleans jazz, Bechet was such a dominant player that trumpeters found it very difficult to play with him. Bechet wanted to play lead and it was up to the other horns to stay out of his way.
Sidney Bechet studied clarinet in New Orleans with Lorenzo Tio, Big Eye Louis Nelson, and George Baquet and he developed so quickly that as a child he was playing with some of the top bands in the city…

Narrator: Yvette Freeman

Singer Dinah Washington battles with a Las Vegas hotel where she can headline but not get a room, while scenes from her life play through her mind, interspersed with musical numbers. Hers is the many-times-married rough-and-tumble life of a strong, selfish diva bedeviled by her family, her own failings and addictions, and the ugliness of racism. A (somewhat unconvincing) epiphany lets her see how to do the show without selling out. The cast, mostly playing multiple roles, is sometimes stagy, but still effective, especially Yvette Freeman, who rightly does not try to imitate Washington's singing, except in its intensity.
