Song of the Week: I've Got a Crush on You

In any given week if you ask me who the greatest female singer of all time is, I will invariably answer Dinah, Sarah, or Ella. This is a Dinah week. She is virtually unmatched in terms of voice, diction, and emotion.

Dinah Washington's rendition of Gershwin's "I've Got a Crush on You" is undoubtedly my favorite.

"You Don't Know What Love Is" is not a very well known song, but it's worth rediscovering. Her smoky voice is a perfect complement to the lyrics of a heartbroken lover. Heard this on WBGO the other week.
