    Of course the purpose of my cheeky statement was to get a conversation going! Will re-listen to Minnie, and Tom, 'Portrait' is a nice one!

    I think that perhaps Jean's merge into R&B/pop/whatsoever may have been well intentioned but cost the lady some seriously deserved jazz creds. Been re-listening to her lps with then-husband Doug. ...

    There seemed to be no 'real' (i.e.: not blog posts, etc) reviews of the appearances in any of the trusted NY publications either. Can't imagine why.

    Dionne's success was every bit built by Barchach/David as was Diana's by Motown. And both matched, then transcended, those initial successes and became extraordinary, singular vocalists.

    I think Jean's best work was with her then husband and music partner, Doug. I think their work together was a sort of music that suited Jean best.

    If forced to choose, I guess I'd pick 'bad'. But perhaps necessary. In any form of popular music, times and tastes change rapidly so sometimes shake-ups are necessary. My own opinion of the HDH...

    I've given my positive thoughts of all 3 of these lps in many (MANY!) prior posts and so won't repeat hear, but will state that it is a validation of the lps' importance and Diana Ross'...

    Ha! All that, and world war, too! In brief, the fear is that Diana would yet again, as always, prevail.

    I hope it's a good experience for you, Darin. A Diana concert is usually a sing-along, dance-along joy.

    At least the Vandellas have a genuine connection to the music they will be performing. The tribute acts just ain't for me. But at least the promoter is identifying these acts as such.
