O’s Notes: Dianne plays on the traditional side for A Little Moonlight. The scatting and melodic voicing on “Loads of Love” and “What A Little Moonlight Can Do” place her alongside Sarah and Ella! The band is Peter Martin (g), Ruben Rogers (b) and Gregory Hutchinson (d). Guitarist Romero Lubambo adds a bossa nova feel to “I Concentrate On You” and “I’m All Smiles”. Dianne’s voice soars across a wide range notably on “Skylark”, to the delight of the listener. Another winner!
