 Amazon.com: Bridges: Music: Dianne Reeves   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-04)
Reeves thrives during a quintet of folk-jazz narratives midway through the disk, from a vivid take on Leonard Cohen's "Suzanne" (set off by Kenny Garrett's human-cry soprano sax) to a wordless "Olokun" by pianist-arranger Billy Childs.

And while Dianne's album "Art and Survival" was a braver and riskier release, "Bridges" is an immaculately-produced, brilliantly-arranged, and gorgeously-sung outing.
