Million Dollar Secret

This is a fun recording, one of singer Irene Reid's few in a small-group setting. Assisted by organist Charles Earland, tenor saxophonist Eric Alexander, trumpeter James Rotundi, guitarist Bob DeVos, and drummer Greg Rockingham, Reid mostly interprets familiar material. Two songs (a swinging "What a Diff'rence a Day Makes" and "This Bitter Earth") are associated with Dinah Washington, the humorous title cut was made famous by Helen Humes, and there are a couple of middle-of-the-road pop songs and a pair of humorous blues ("Big Fat Daddy" and "One Eyed Man"). Million Dollar Secret is not an essential release, since most of the material is quite familiar, but this is one of Irene Reid's finest recordings.
