Dinah Washington Tribute with Diane Hoffman
Sunday, February 4 at 2:00 p.m.
Dynamic song stylist Diane Hoffman will salute the wonderful Dinah Washington. The Grammy winning “Queen of the Jukeboxes,” left her
turbulent life behind at a tender age of 39. In that short period, a volatile mix of undeniable talent and deep rooted insecurity took her to the heights of fame and depths of self-doubt. By 1959 she had earned a Grammy for her version of “What a Difference a Day Makes.” Her musical gifts were offset by a wild and extravagant person life. Quincy Jones vividly describes Washington’s style: she “could take a melody in her hand, hold it like an egg, crack it open, fry it, let it sizzle, reconstruct it, put the egg back in the box and you would’ve still understood every single syllable.”
