REVIEWS

“Just Dinah and Me” Friday night at the Clarence Muse Cafe Theater.” The Musical tribute to Dinah Washington starred Dallas native Sandra Kaye. The performance of Washington’s songs was delightful. Kaye opened by belting out one of Washington’s classics: “I Don’t Hurt Anymore.”She sang more than 10 of Washington’s hits. However, her rendition of “Evil Gal Blues” and “I’ve Got You Under My Skin” moved the audience to hand clapping and feet stomping.Her performance of “Me and My Gin” brought the audience to its feet before intermission. The cozy venue allowed Kaye’s voice to resonate without the accompaniment of the microphone at times. The transitions between songs appeared to be seamless during the performance. The pianist and songstress were synchronized on stage. Kaye’s popularity with jazz enthusiast made her an excellent choice for this performance."
