Dinah Washington. Dinah Jams. (1954; 1990)

Does she ever. This features one of my favorite singers in a jam session format mostly with members of the Max Roach/Clifford Brown group. Maynard Ferguson sits in. She sings mostly standard songs like "Come Rain or Come Shine" and "I've Got You Under My Skin." Dinah had a voice stronger than Billie Holiday, but with similar intonational patterns.
