'The Simple Life' is singer/pianist Dianne Gire's debut release. This CD is a great blend of old jazz standards, dynamic performances, and outstanding vocals. Sometimes swinging, sometimes sultry, but always tasty, Dianne leads a dynamic combo ranging from 3 to 6 pieces through original renditions of some of her favorite standards. Dianne is a veteran performer but has only now had the opportunity to share her music through a commercial CD release. Her ability to assemble a fantastic group of musicians and capture their talents live makes her songs feel fresh and real. 'It's almost as if the band is sitting right in front of you!' Fans of Diana Krall and Norah Jones should find Dianne Gire a new and exciting voice in the world of the female pianist/singer.
