Midwest Record – A Swingin’ Life

Midwest Record says: “Here’s a lesson in singing and swinging that ought to send all those talent show car alarms packing.  Diva, the never say die all female jazz orchestra, brings divas Nancy Wilson and Marlena Shaw back to the front to show how it’s really done.  Wilson has slowed down but never really retired.  Shaw has largely been confined to reissues and movie soundtracks of those reissues, but she ain’t ready for moth balls either.  Diva tears it up with a wink toward old Vegas and retro touches, but they are as in the moments as can be.  A real dream date of a jazz session, Sherrie Maricle and the gang are on point throughout with the best of them.  And by the way gals, we were glad to see you getting some love on the Macy’s 4th of July fireworks special.  This is dandy, kick ass work on tracks you know and love that you just might find yourself loving all over again.  Hot stuff.”
