O’s Notes: As time moves on, some things wear out, others age gracefully. At 60, Diane Schuur is better than ever with no signs of club weariness. Her timber, pace and modulation are impeccable. I Remember You is a look back at her inspiration and work with Stan Getz and Frank Sinatra. Roni Ben Hur (g), Joel Frahm (sax), Alan Broadbent (p), Ben Wolfe (b) and Ulysses Owens, Jr. (d) form a supportive quintet around Schuur with each of them stepping into the spotlight where appropriate. Guest Romero Lubmabo (g) appears in two selections notably “Watch What Happens”. But this is clearly Diane’s date and it is a winner in all aspects.
