AllMusic Review by

A package that combines the singers' individual Jazz 'Round Midnight discs, Three Divas makes for a perfect way to get cozy with some of true queens of jazz singing. And although a fourth disc featuring Sarah Vaughan would have made things perfect, this three-disc set still will keep listeners more than just a bit occupied. The program sticks to 'Round Midnight's hallowed ballad terrain, with Fitzgerald a glow, Holiday in pathos-ridden land, and Washington all contained power. The mix predictably goes heavy on classic songbook fare by Porter, Gershwin, Berlin, Rodgers & Hart, et al; the support cast -- Ellington, Quincy Jones, Billy May, Nelson Riddle, and few all-star combos -- keeps up the rarefied atmosphere. A long and sultry evening awaits.
