MG-36104: The Swingin' Miss D / Dinah Washington

[Front Cover] Label Type : blue EmArcy type B
Matrix Number : SIDE-A MG 3600104 A - MS2    A1    I
SIDE-B MG 36104B MS3    A1    I



Comments

Although not the earliest copy with MS1 matrix, this copy can provide nice playback with great fidelity.

Inside The Groove

Dinah Washington's nice swingy album with Quincy Jones Orchestra.

Personal Impression (and brief notes)

All tracks are from fruitful December 1956 session backed up with Quincy Jones Orchestra. Quincy's arrangements surely contribute the magical chemistry between Dinah and the backing orchestra.

Yet another great vocal album by the Queen.

Strictly Personal Rating (to what extent I could enjoy this album)

9 out of 10
