her joy in the act of singing is obvious…

elaine dame trio

Dame’s interpretive gifts-which are through the roof-do what jazz is  meant to do: turn these well-worn tunes into a revelatory and often very  witty set of commentaries on each other. This song list is constructed  like a roller-coaster ride over the radiant heights and the devastating  depths of the modern landscape of modern romance. Her voice is capable  of doing whatever she asks of it-from an extended staccato run to a  single word teased by a beguiling melisma – but it’s the choices behind  these technical feats that are the real story. Everything is in the  service of the narrative; the beauty of her instrument is guided by the  shrewdness of her instincts and her instincts are infallible.”
