5.0 out of 5 stars This is a very rare find for Blues fans and the Audiophile. Jan. 30 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Take the magnificent voice and masterful interpretations Of Diahann Carroll, combine them with the Duke Ellington Orchestra.....The result achieves the very highest level of excellence. It seems that Diahann missed her calling, as she performs the blues superbly. As an avid blues and jazz fan, this recording is the prize of my collection. It is very rare to find a recording of 1930's style blues of this quality, both the performance and the clarity of the recording. Also of interest with this album is that it was originally recorded as a "digital master disc" and released as a certified limited edition by Orinda records in 1978 (less than 800 copies were sold). This was one of the very first digitally mastered recordings. This technology was used just after direct discs that were recorded in the mid 70's.

5.0 out of 5 stars the crown jewel of my music collection April 1 2002
By cricket - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
less than 800 copies of the original LP were sold? then i'm one proud owner. & what a beautifully crafted album it was!
this IS the CD that i yearned for. i mean, it was digitally recorded back when nobody knew what that meant (CDs were still about 5 years out). it was... & still is... so clean... brimming with "air" & "juice" like no other album i'd previously heard.
if anyone could find fault with it, then maybe it's a bit "in your face," as in, "let's show off this new toy." digital recording was still to find it's subtlety, after all.
but i'm not finding fault. in fact, imagine placing your ruby red slipper at the very beginning of the "digital" yellow brick road. your toe would be touching this album.
thank you, Diahann(!)... Mercer... Mr Miller... & all involved.
cricket rests.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classy recording Feb. 22 2011
By IndyTennis - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This recording has a very sophisticated sound. The orchestra sounds veteran and extremely smooth and Ms. Carroll is in great voice as always. Allmusic.com has a poor review of this recording and while I often agree with reviews there, on this one I wondered if we were listening to the same album. My version, a Delta CD which came out in the very early 1990s, has excellent sonic quality even by today's standards. Smooth, sophisticated jazz played at a very high level. Highly recommended.
3.0 out of 5 stars Not what I expected Oct. 4 2013

The disc is supposed to have nine tracks. There are only eight. "My Man" was listed as track # 4 but is missing. Two of the tracks, "Sweet Georgia Brown and "St Louis Blues" are both instrumentals - no vocals at all. The songs that are there are wonderful but I felt cheated.

Classy Miss Carroll does a nice tribute to EDthel Waters. Great that these classics are brought back. Particular favorite is After You're Gone.
