Ruby Dee’s larger=than-life personality is all over this high-stepping, honky-tonk frolic– an observation that can be accurately offered about all of her works, rousing and light-spirited as they dependably are. And it advantages her immeasurably that ace players have her back. Indeed, their robust zeal alone demands hearty salute.
