Like George Gershwin and Cole Porter, the music of Jimmy McHugh is an essential part of the American popular song canon, and jazz musicians have always been the canon's greatest interpreters. On this CD, New Orleans-born trumpeter Terence Blanchard delivers fresh renditions of McHugh's songs with four of the brightest singers on the scene. The cool Canadian chanteuse Diana Krall tickles the title track with her Shirley Horn-like vocals and pianisms, while Jane Monheit graces the ballad "Too Young to Go Steady" and the bouncy "I Can't Give You Anything but Love" with her quiet-storm phrasing. Dianne Reeves's powerful voice imbues "I Can't Believe You're in Love with Me" and the midtempo "Can't Get Out of This Mood" with new emotional colors. Cassandra Wilson's down-South delivery transforms "Don't Blame Me" and "Sunny Side of the Street" into slow-drag and tango-tinged numbers. Blanchard's instrumental versions of "You're a Sweetheart" and "Lost in a Fog," with the tenor saxophonist Brice Winston, are lyrical in their own jazzy ways.
