Gloria Lynne
From My Heart To Yours

Gloria Lynne's "I Wish You Love" was the first song by a jazz singer to hit the top of the jazz, R&B, and pop charts at the same time. Lynne became an overnight star due to this obscure French tune that seemed to bewitch everyone who heard it. Today her star remains undimmed and Gloria Lynne is one of the all-time greatest smokey-voiced jazz divas ever and this diverse collection finds her at her technical and passionate best. Lynne's boisterous delivery was honed on gospel music and features the jolt and richness of a shot of espresso with just the hint of sweetness to soften the edges. Lynne requires the right presentation for her powerful vocals, and DAVID NEWMAN, JOHN di MARTINO & company deliver the goods.
