Better Days (1987) Dianne Reeves. "You'd be hard-pressed to find a smoother, classier reading of the jazz chestnut "Yesterdays," and the frantically-paced "That's All" features some of the best scatting this side of Ella Fitzgerald. Especially impressive is her reading of "I Got it Bad and That Ain't Good," as Reeves let's her voice caress the lyric with a light touch. A less instinctual vocalist might have attacked the entire post-solo second bridge, but Dianne builds to a belt only when the lyrics read "crying my heart out," accenting just the right moment. This isn't to say traditionally-arranged standards is where Reeves begins and ends, however; a true master can take on a pop-flavored piece and twist, turn, and innovate until the end result is undeniably jazz, and Dianne proves her mettle on Herbie Hancock's "Harvest Time," Stevie Wonder's "Never Said (Chan's Song)," and the sweetly sentimental "Better Days." Additionally, "Sky Islands" (which Reeves co-wrote) has a multi-layered feel... part samba, part fusion, and all gorgeous." This CD is becoming more and more hard-to-get so
