France - Full Moon 126 - 01/03/07
Dian B's debut album arrives sounding impossibly fresh and hard to categorize. It starts with the loungey "The Game" all relaxed saxophone and purred vocals.
She turns George Harrsion's "Something" into a gentle latin-tinged dream. Her vocal is sublimely evocative. "Mathilde" is a lovely chanson sung in French backed by a piano. "Manha de Carnival" is another cover and it has its own spirit, Dian's singing transcendent over a light backing. She has a truly cosmopolitan style and her own intriguing way with music, which makes this, record a delight. She'll hopefully make many more just like it.
