This DVD features Diane Schuur performing 15 tunes with Big Bop Nouveau. The final two songs (Just Friends and It Don’t Mean A Thing If It Ain’t Got That Swing) are performed with Maynard. It’s a delight to hear Diane and Maynard trade riffs, with Diane occasionally mimicking Maynard’s exuberant sound.
“I had a blast working with Mayanrd and his powerpacked band. The crowd was in their element and it was so much fun sailing vocally above the brass…”
