Yolanda Duke seems to weave a magic spell on the repertoire of The Great American Songbook, making them her own. She sings them with unabashed, almost naked emotion, in her majestic contralto.
Every once and a while Ms. Duke takes flight into ranges that she would not normally venture, where she is absolutely and devastatingly beautiful. 'Luna Azul,' performed as a cha cha cha seems to exist in a rarefied realm. The haunting beauty of 'Medley Myrta Silva' is a most spine chilling bolero, especially as Ms. Duke reaches for those high notes as if she were singing an aria.
