The latest release by Rebecca DuMaine & the Dave Miller Trio titled Better Than Anything is a family affair. That is because Dave Miller is the father of Rebecca DuMaine. He is the pianist and arranger along with his daughter on this project. The CD shows off DuMaine's fine voice and solid intonation. The rest of the trio includes Mario Suraci on bass and Bill Belasco on drums.

DuMaine has an acting background which is reflected in her musical influences which include the likes of Peggy Lee and Shirley Horn. She has performed in the theater, television and radio, however, she has a passion for singing songs from the swing era. There are 15 tunes on this disc and many are standards from long ago that have been recorded by many different artists. They include: Better Than Anything, Cheek to Cheek, That's All, It Might As Well Be Spring and No More Blues.

The musicians should be given kudos for their work on this album. The stellar piano playing from Dave Miller throughout the album is solid. Of course, Mario Suraci continues his fine work on bass as he has for many years. He has worked and recorded with some giants in the industry: Frank Sinatra, Benny Goodman, James Moody, Mel Torme, Elvis Presley, Bernadette Peters, Louis Bellson among others. Drummer Bill Belasco is also solid and he has collaborated with Dave Miller for a long time and he works with various jazz, latin, rock and rhythm and blues bands.

This album is the second release by Rebecca DuMaine. You can get information on her and this project by visiting the website: http://www.rebeccadumaine.com. You can also visit http://www.davemillerjazz.com for more information about the Dave Miller Trio.
