Review: This wasn't just a typical recording session. It was a musical party among friends. Needless to say, I had a ball making music with Dee and these master musicians. Thanks for the good time Dee.

Review: There have been two vocalists that I felt I could accompany when I first heard their recordings. Carmen McRae and Dakota Staton. Both because of how their feelings communicated to me. Accompaniment to me is not just a gig. It is a relationship. Houston Person reached for that relationship when he put the group together for Dee Daniels. When I hit the first note at rehearsal with her, it felt so good, and so right, and it got better as the ideas flowed and the other members of the group joined. It was not only her voice, her swing, her soul; but her musicianship as well. Our communication was fluid. She knew what the band was doing and what to do about it vocally. I was comfortable and confident playing for her. However, when she sat at the piano to demonstrate the feeling on 'Love Ain't Love Without You', I said to her, "You must play this one yourself." Her feelings on that song and her piano accompaniment was personal and deeper than I could reach.

Review: This recording of Dee's finally shows her in an honest light, doing the 'Dee Thang.' Dee gave the most convincing performances I have ever heard her give on record. She was free and uninhibited. She had FUN with the music and it charged everyone in the room. Dee is beyond category, although her influences are apparent. She has the strength and power of someone with classical technique, her gospel influence leaps at you from her soul, her jazz swings, her repertoire and knowledge of American songs is expansive and she composes music and lyrics. Her vocal range is seemingly endless, something that many musicians marvel at about her. Having known Dee since 1980, it is a special pleasure to finally hear her on record the way I know her in live concerts: scintillating!

Review: Dee Daniels has surrounded herself with her musical friends who love and support her. I am honored and proud to be one of them. It was so great to watch the rhythm section work so quickly and efficiently together. John Clayton, Norman Simmons and Kenny Washington hooked up that stuff so intelligently and soulfully it was magic watching them. Standing next to Houston Person was a thrill for me. I've been a fan of his a long time, because he always plays the right notes for the situation. And Dee Daniels - Dee Daniels, one of my favorite people on this earth. To call her merely a vocalist is an understatement. Her performances jump off this CD straight into your blood stream. And "Midlife Crisis"... you won't forget it!!
