Album Notes
Dianne Forsyth was an extraordinary coloratura soprano whose vocal virtuosity astonished jazz and classical music-lovers alike. Her career as an artist began in earnest when she joined “Sunnyside,” a popular Toronto-based jazz trio. After several years of performing in jazz clubs, concerts, and on TV and radio, Dianne became a member of the Star-Scape Singers. It was under the tutelage of Maestro Kenneth Mills that her talents blossomed as he opened her voice and led her to discover a vocal range of well over three octaves! As an integral member of the group, she recorded 18 albums with Star-Scape. This solo recording, Lady on the Landing, was recorded live in studio. As she and the instrumentalists were conducted by Kenneth Mills the rhythm was set: one performance, one playback, one mix and on to the next song. It features Dianne’s unique vocal interpretations of well-known classics and originals.

“We listen with awe and wonder to a popular singer whose range includes over three and a half octaves! The artist has descended into herself and has produced her deep feeling and emotion that reaches out and overwhelms the listener.” - Lyn Jenkins, Harlem Weekly
