About

Praised for her "affinity for hushed balladry and brash, extemporaneous swing" (The Washington Post), acclaimed jazz singer Vanessa Rubin leads a thrilling tribute to one of the most innovative songwriters, pianists, bandleaders, and arrangers of 1940s bebop. From "Lady Bird" to "If You Could See Me Now," Tadd Dameron's songs reign as some of the most beautiful and optimistic in the repertoire. Joined by an all-star horn section to create the "Dameron Sound," Vanessa Rubin and music director Cecil Bridgewater present a selection of Tadd Dameron's greatest hits, newly arranged by some of his contemporaries, including Frank Foster, Benny Golson, and Jimmy Heath.
