Joe Lovano - accompanied by Jones on piano, George Mraz on bass and Paul Motian on drums - never strays too far afield in his sax solos, and Dianne Reeves, who provides the bulk of the vocals, similarly plays it straight, her husky tone lending warmth and richness to such Strayhorn compositions as "Day Dream," "My Little Brown Book" (her playful scatting lifts the already. Elvis Costello doesn't take a different approach to his guest vocal on the ballad "My Flame Burns Blue (Blood Count)" than he does on the many other jazz vocals he'd recorded by this time, but he's still always a pleasure to hear, his nuanced reading close to perfection and as heartfelt as everything else he does.

Lush Life pays tribute to pianist/composer Strayhorn and his contribution to jazz via his timeless and brilliantly crafted songs. Dianne Reeves sings on six of the fifteen tracks, and her sultry voice is an inspired choice. The title track is performed as a duo to wonderful effect with guitarist Russell Malone. He employs a Spanish-flavored intro, and accompanies Reeve's heartfelt vocal by weaving arpeggiated chords around Strayhorn's classic melody. Hank Jones takes "Satin Doll" as a solo reading and adds some tension to the often-performed standard, thus keeping it from sounding like a pedestrian exercise.

I used to visit all the very gay places Those come-what-may places Where one relaxes on the axis Of the wheel of life To get the feel of life From jazz and cocktails. The gals (girls) I knew had sad and sullen gray faces With distingué traces That used to be there You could see where They'd been washed away By too many through the day Twelve o'clock tales. Life is lonely again And only last year everything seemed so sure Now life is awful again A troughful of hearts could only be a bore. A week in Paris might (will) ease the bite of it All I care is to smile in spite of it I'll forget you I will While yet you are still Burning inside my brain. Romance is mush Stifling those who strive I'll live a lush life In some small dive. And there I'll be While I rot with the rest Of those whose lives are lonely, too Lush life. Lush Life" Track Info. Written By Billy Strayhorn.
