Is it significant that Queen Latifah chose to use her real name in the title of her 2004 album? It might be her way of saying that her true identity is reflected in this collection of smoothly-sung jazz standards and pop tunes. In any case, she acquits herself well in the role of uptown chanteuse here. She doesn’t aim to impress with fancy vocal gymnastics; her singing teases and insinuates rather than overpowers. This approach works well on intimate tracks like “Simply Beautiful” (a duet with Al Green), “Lush Life” and “I Put A Spell On You.” She puts a sensual strut into her reading of “Mercy, Mercy, Mercy” and rides high upon the billowing melody of “Hard Times.” On “California Dreamin,’” she transforms a ‘60s folk-rock standard into a quiet storm of jazzy longing. Veteran arranger/producers Arif Mardin and Ron Fair are among those adding to the album’s polished sound. The Dana Owens Album offers an enticing re-introduction to a star already known to millions. Call her whatever you like — the Queen reigns on.
