Review

Review Text Dinah Shore has been typecast as a singer of clean-cut rural purity. Although she does fine work with "Dear Hearts and Gentle People" and the like, this tribute CD flings her buttermilk image to the cabbage patch. Dinah Shore is strictly an urbanite in here. She shines as she performs sophisticated blues, torch songs, exotic Latin numbers, and intelligent Tin Pan Alley standards.The forgotten hit from the 1920s, "Chloe," is a treacherously difficult melody that Dinah smoothly dishes out with all the appropriate pathos. "Somebody Loves Me," "Stardust," and "Body and Soul" are some of the all time great songs, and Dinah's versions are passionate yet restrained. The lady with the pure voice sings the world-weary lyrics and difficult melody of Duke Ellington's "Sophisticated Lady" with great ease. Her success came from a talent that handled complex compositions with the same grace as simple songs.
