The summer of 66 was a good year for Della Reese. The celebrated jazz diva had a string of albums to her name. her exuberant vocal talents were in constant demand in venues and clubs all over the US. and she had just bought a luxury house in the Hollywood Hills. Among her many engagements. one booking at the Playboy Penthouse just down the road was a night not to be forgotten. In amongst the luxurious padded booths occupied by movie moguls. starlets and Playboy bunnies was recording equipment that would capture the magic of that unforgettable night with one of the most wildly provocative pieces ever recorded. Della would accompany Bobby Bryants jazz combo with ad libs and shocking stories in her own inimitable. outrageous way. and would deliver Ervin Drakes Very Good Year in flamboyant style. Here we have that very song. live as it was heard that very night. and in studio form as it was released a few months earlier. In over 40 years nothing has changed. the music provided by the good humoured songstress is here once more to provoke. to astonish. to enjoy! Mid tempo soul jazz with seductive femme vocals displaying a feisty charm and attitude. A superb DJ play if dropped onto a party crowd thats looking for something different. sultry and wild!
