I had this album years ago, Some of these tunes are very evocative. they are not all classics some are relatively newish but there are enough tracks to be able to skip a few and still have a good solid listening expirience. This LP has the most excellent qualify of being liked by myself my mother and my 94 year old grandmother too. Nice one
The title of this album is not exaggerating when it says 'Divas of Jazz'. All of the greats are featured here such as Billie Holliday, Nina Simone, Dinah Washington, Etta James to name but a few. There are a multitude of well loved tracks such as 'Cry me a River', 'Mad About the Boy', Cry me a River' and many, many more. A wonderful introduction to anyone wanting to discover the greats of female jazz as well as a fantastic addition to the music library of any jazz fan. There are tracks to suit every taste, from the gentle 'bluesy' type numbers to the upbeat. Highly recommended.
