Marty Sherman on Lady Di:
Lady Sings The Jazz ...

Detroit-born crooner and lead singer of the Supremes, Diana Ross has a new album slated for summer release.

The material for Blue was recorded at the time the Motown legend starred as Billie Holiday in the 1972 movie Lady Sings The Blues and was originally meant to be released as a followup to the movie’s soundtrack LP. But on the heels of her Oscar loss for Best Actress in a Musical to Liza Minnelli, Ms. Ross, the Beyonce of her day, recorded the hit album and chart-topping single Touch Me In The Morning.

And Motown never looked back.

The tapes from the session, which include Diana’s versions of jazz standards from Let’s Do It to I Loves You Porgy, were recently unearthed during a "vigorous spring cleaning" at the Motown offices, according to one insider.

Reportedly, the 62-year-old Ross had "no recollection" of ever having recorded it.

A.) It’s high time jazz made the spotlight again. Pass me the jittersauce, baby.
B.) Destined for Urban Contemporary/Smooth Jazz stations everywhere.
C.) I didn’t know Diana Ross was still alive. You live, girl!
