18th & Vine, 2007, CD
Instrument: Female Vocals
Jazz Ruler Type: Ballads, Blues
O’s Notes: Diane sings thirteen bubbly, swinging cinema classics starting with “All Gods Children Got Rhythm” and including “The Look of Love” and “Manha De Carnival”. Her band includes some of the best in the business with Christian Jacob (p), Larry Koonse (g), Joe LaBarbera (d), Chris Colangelo (b) and Carl Saunders (t). They keep the music popping throughout the set including timely well-developed solos like those from Jacobs and Koonse on “Double Rainbow”. The combination of Diane’s pleasant vocals with the strong band makes this a winner!
Publicist: Allegro & Len Triola
