NEW CD: Renée joins Norah Jones and Diana Krall on

"Cassandra Wilson, Diana Krall, Melody Gardot, Norah Jones, Renée Fleming and Ruth Cameron: the lineup of singers performing popular standards and vintage obscurities on 'Sophisticated Ladies,' the 25th-anniversary album of Charlie Haden Quartet West, is formidable," writes Stephen Holden for the New York Times.

"The happiest surprise is Ms. Fleming’s voluptuously besotted rendition of 'A Love Like This,' composed by Victor Young as a theme for the 1943 movie 'For Whom the Bell Tolls,' with lyrics by Ned Washington. Ms. Fleming’s rich, gliding voice evokes a woman wallowing in heedless sensual afterglow, her half-choked singing flooded with emotion."
