Baba, I agree with you on Carmen McRae’s interpretation of Monk. For me Diane Reeves is too smooth, too sweet on these tunes. Carmen McRae’s voice and intonations are gritty, experienced, full of life’s wisdom.

So just a few minutes ago, I’m listening to Pandora and I hear a vocalist who is a little nasally, swinging a la Ella Fitzgerald and who is it? A young Carmen McRae! The voice is completely different, the handling completely different. Would be interesting to take a vocal walk through her progression from her young years to her mature years.
