The Late Miss D: Dinah Washington On Roulette, 1962-63

"The Late Miss D" features the 1962-63 Roulette recordings of Dinah Washington, who died at the age of 38 in 1963. Washington's Roulette period offers a mix of ballads with strings, blues, pop, and big-band jazz; although often overshadowed by her long stay on Mercury (1946-61), this last chapter in the career of a legendary singer shows her maintaining the same high standards of soulful performance. These recordings are now collected in a Mosaic Records box set; there's also a new biography, Queen: the Life and Music of Dinah Washington, written by Nadine Cohodas.
