Terrence Blanchard: Let's Get Lost Sub-titled “The Songs of Jimmy McHugh”, Let’s Get Lost features 11 original tunes by one of America's great popular tunesmiths. Ironically, while most listeners will be familiar with the songs, few would be able to identify McHugh (1894-1969) as the composer. Aiding trumpeter Terrence Blanchard are four of the hottest female vocalists in jazz today—Dianna Krall, Jane Monheit, Dianne Reeves and Cassandra Wilson. Backed by Blanchard’s working group, Canada’s own Dianna Krall gets things underway with a typically smoky, understated version of the title tune. Jane Monheit, sounding more convincing here than on her own recordings, contributes "Too Young To Go Steady" and "I Can’t Give You Anything But Love." Wilson and Reeves, who each sing two tunes apiece, are strong on "Don’t Blame Me" and "Can’t Get Out Of This Mood," respectively. As good as the divas are, it’s Blanchard’s fiery trumpet work that impresses most. Whether accompanying the vocalists or performing instrumental versions of "Exactly Like You, Lost In A Fog" and "I’m In The Mood For Love," he’s in top form. Beautiful.

Track Listing: Let's Get Lost, Too Young To Go Steady, You're A Sweetheart, I Can't Believe That You're In Love With Me, I'm In The Mood For Love, Don't Blame Me, I Can't Give You Anything But Love, Exactly Like You, Can't Get Out Of This Mood, Lost In A Fog, On The Sunny Side Of The Street.

Personnel: Terence Blanchard: trumpet; Diana Krall: vocals; Jane Monheit: vocals; Dianne Reeves: vocals; Cassandra Wilson: vocals; Brice Winston: tenor sax; Edward Simon: piano; Derek Nievergelt: bass; Eric Harland: drums.
