"This tribute to Ethel Waters, made by Tony Award winner Diahann Carroll with the Duke Ellington Orchestra, was recorded in Hollywood in 1978 and originally released on the Orinda label. Carroll does a credible job honoring the pioneering Ethel Waters, emulating the passionate, emotive style of Waters' era. "Happiness Is a Thing Called Joe," "A Cabin in the Sky," and "My Man" are sung quite well. Carroll makes some revisions to the lyrics for "There'll Be Some Changes Made," replacing the names in the song with those of contemporaries, among them Richard Pryor. Carroll adds the verse to a very poignant "Am I Blue," which just drips with feeling. With "Supper Time," Carroll returns once more to the mood and style of Ethel Waters, accompanied by some decent sax playing." - AMG.
