Audiences looking for something new for their jazz collection, or those who are completely new to jazz, should definitely check out this stellar release from The DIVA Jazz Orchestra.
Songs that receive the DIVA Jazz treatment include “Pure Imagination,” “The Sound of Music,” “Oh, What a Beautiful Mornin’,” and “Seventy-Six Trombones,” among others.
