The Grand Encounter indeed! On this exceptionally well-produced CD, the contributions by musicians (including saxists Phil Woods and Bobby Watson, and trumpeter Clark Terry) and by guest vocalists (Joe Williams and Germaine Bazzle) are no less intriguing than those of Diana Reeves. A particular delight is ”Side by Side,” in which Bazzle’s warmth and spontaneity help loosen up the occasionally reined-in Reeves. B+
