The latest from singer Rebecca Dumaine, along with the Dave Miller Trio, is yet another great outing from the wonderful unit. Happy Madness leans heavily towards the former in a set of jubilant spirited tunes. Compositions by Cole Porter, Jerome Kern and Johnny Mercer, Jimmy Van Heusen and Johnny Burke, Paul McCartney and Kenny Rankin, among others, comprise the bulk of the recording. Dumaine’s joyful, empathic delivery is aided by the solid virtuosity of the band. Into addition to Miller on piano, Bill Belasco joins in on drums and Perry Thoorsell handles the bass duties. Both band and singer are impressive in their own right, jointly, they — and this effort are simply outstanding.
