"As good a jazz vocal set as you could hear" - Liner Notes by Bob Dorough

  original release cover art

Diane Hubka’s debut CD, (originally released on the Dutch Challenge/ A-Records label, and re-issued in 2004 on VSOJAZ Records) was nominated for a 1999 Jazz Award for Best Recording Debut, alongside Stefon Harris, Ravi Coltrane and Brian Blade. In the liner notes Bob Dorough writes "as good a jazz vocal set as you could hear." Improvising with imagination and ease on a repertoire of straight-ahead jazz, blues and bossa nova compositions - but not the usual standards - she offers a fresh approach in today's jazz scene.

Alto sax legend Lee Konitz appears on three tracks, including the vocal version of "Israel", reprising his original participation of this tune on Miles Davis' "Birth of the Cool" in 1949. The CD has seldom-performed songs like the title track by Kenny Rankin, Antonio Carlos Jobim's "Favela", Meredith d'Ambrosio's "Miss Harper Goes Bizarre", Jan Leder's "Thinking of You", plus unique interpretations of standards: "Detour Ahead", "Lazy Afternoon", and "Alone Together". Featuring special arrangements by guitarist John Hart.
