5.0 out of 5 stars A REAL SWINGER 27 Sep 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Dinah's swings her way through this great album. Not a bad track. Her Mercury years were her best years although she did some fine recordings for Roulette. This is the winner..

5.0 out of 5 stars One of Her Best 28 Feb 2007
By A. Griffin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This CD was given a renaissance when Doubletree Hotels used 'Relax Max' in one of its commericals. When I heard Dinah insouciantly bend the word 'Reeelax' on TV, I knew there would be people under 60 all over the country surfing the 'net to find the source of that extraordinary voice. Dinah is cozily ensconced in Quincy Jones' cheeky arrangement and the result is the sophisticated sound the record companies stopped making decades ago.

But that's not all. Dinah's saucy 'Is You Is, or Is You Ain't, My Baby?' is a must have in the Miss D. canon. Tack on the rarely sung Ellington/Tizol standards 'Perdido' and 'Caravan', and you have one of Dinah's best CDs. (Though the lyrics for these last two are fatuous, the compositions and the performances overcome those flaws.) Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mizz D--The Truly American Voice of Jazz and Blues 14 Sep 2000
By D. Davis - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This Dinah Washington recording from 1957, produced by Quincy Jones (who helped Sarah Vaughan with the "Misty" album produced in France in 1958) is everything a Dinah Washington album should be: fiesty, swinging, bloozy, and unique. Dinah Washington (who died much too early--in 1963) is a truly American voice--what does that mean? There are no words to describe it. This is why you must listen. Dinah Washington must be an auditory experience. No words are descriptive enough to capture who she is or what she does. No other voice rings as loudly or as clearly as hers does; no other voice ever will. Her performances here are spectacular and swinging. "Perdido" and "Relax Max" are marvelous. Washington is in control of her music, yet the spirits soar so freely around her--this is what she captures. If you're new to Dinah Washington, then start with this one!

5.0 out of 5 stars Oh, how she swings! 17 April 2000
By "literarylady" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Dinah Washington has THE voice! She is so cool, and this album swings! Quincy Jones helped to produce this album, and his influence shows. The songs are familiar, but have her style and sass. I love her renditions of "Perdido," and "Makin' Whoopee," and "Relax Max" gets my fingers snapping. This album is perfect for your cozy cocktail and dinner parties; it puts everyone in a good mood. The CD box itself isn't shown here yet, but if it is the same version/release that I have, the production of the case is unique. It's a fold-over package with cool 50's design, and the pictures and liner notes are excellent.

5.0 out of 5 stars D+Q=Magic 25 Aug 2000
By F. Kelly - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
If it's possible to wear out a CD, I'll find out with this one. I never tire of hearing this music. Two of the tracks -- "They Didn't Believe Me" and "Perdido" have become my Official Favorite vocal performances of those songs.
Quincy Jones's arrangements are loose and jazzy, and show Dinah at her best: a top-notch musician working with other top-notch musicians.
The final seven tracks (which were not included on the original LP) may be too much of a good thing (it's best to skip "I Know" altogether,) but even they have some moments ("Relax, Max" is a hoot.) A must-have CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Foot tapping, beautiful Quincy and Dinah, FUN! 9 May 2007
By Suzanne Benson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I am listening as I write, will try to get through the whole album before I finish this review. The sound on this album is very rich for an old, restored album...amazing, really; the sound is as good as a newly produced album. It has 18 songs on it; the original only had 12. Has anyone seen the Doubletree ad with the wonderful graphics...and Dinah singing "Relax Max". Well, that's what got me onto this album, and it was not a mistake...this album is truly a winner. Lots of foot-tapping joy, with some nice ballads to calm you along the way. I'm so glad my mother wasn't a fan of Quincy and Dinah, so I can enjoy this as new, with no offending memories attached. I will not name a song that is better than any other...they are ALL good. Well, on second thought, "i'll drown in my tears" is a very old fashioned bluesy song, so great! "you let my love grow cold" is very swingy, irresistable. I must stop my review at this point, but this album is a winner. The songs on it are ALL winners. The best of the best of this genre.
