Diana Ross Stolen Moments Album
"Stolen Moments: The Lady Sings... Jazz and Blues" is a 1993 live album by Diana Ross released on the Motown label.
The album was recorded at the Ritz Theatre in New York City on December 4, 1992. The nineteen Jazz standards, which are highly associated with Billie Holiday, had been sung by the Motown diva twenty years before for the soundtrack of her award-winning film Lady Sings the Blues. The band backing Diana includes Jazz giants Roy Hargrove, Ron Carter, Jon Faddis, and Urbie Greene, amongst others. Upon release, the album reached the Top 10 on Billboard's Jazz chart. It peaked at #2 just once position away from the soundtrack to "Lady Sings the Blues" which was a #1 album on the Billboard Top 200 chart.
A 90 minute video recording of the show was released, initially as a Pay-Per-View event in the United States, and then in the various video formats available at the time. The video recording featured a performance by Rhonda Ross and behind-the-scenes footage with Diana.
A studio recording of "Where Did We Go Wrong" was included on international editions of the album, but these international releases omitted the live track "The Man I Love".
The original airing in 1992 celebrated the 20th Anniversary of the release of Diana's film debut in "Lady Sings the Blues".
The album CD and DVD were both remastered and re-released in 2002 with superb sound and resolution. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
