“Lynette Washington & Dennis Bell – LIVE AT THE X: I first encountered Lynette’s fantastic & lively vocal jazz back in issue # 103; I was impressed on that CD & am (even) moreso on this superb live set (2 CD’s, basically) that features Lynette with producer/pianist Dennis & a whole cast of other players that give you some music that will stay UP on your playlists. Scope out their rendition (6:44) of one of my favorite tunes, “Walkin‘” to get a taste for just how lively it can get! Lynette’s vocal just shines on “The Best Is Yet To Come“, & the band is at full-tilt behind her! On Shirley Horne’s “Return To Paradise“, Lynette’s full-throated voice makes you realize why live performance is so key to really understanding jazz – it’s my favorite tune on the double-CD set. You get 19 tunes that will spin over & over again on your playlists. I give Lynette & Dennis another MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) rating of 4.97. ”
