Born: March 18
Diane Hubka makes her way into a select group of jazz vocalists/instrumentalists, where she rightly assumes a place of honor. (ALL ABOUT JAZZ) Whether singing with a group or accompanying herself on seven-string guitar, she gets straight to the heart of a song, playfully improvising over what New York's VILLAGE VOICE calls as eclectically entertaining a collection of material as one could wish for.
Diane's newest CD will be released on Oct 2! West Coast Strings (SSJ Records) features the singer with a far ranging program of music with eight West Coast master guitarists, plus soul-jazz veteran, Bobby Pierce guesting on Hammond B- 3. Hubka also plays guitar on three tracks. Don Heckman writes in the liner notes, On this captivating new album, Diane has assembled a West Coast jazz guitar summit, with each of the all-star groupings providing the perfect setting for her soaring vocals....
