Nice to see Diahann's Ethel Waters album mentioned: http://rafu.com/news/2011/09/kandas-lush-satisfying-days/
Here's a great version of A Sleepin' Bee, taped for PBS in 1985.

To be aired on PBS in August, here is a clip from The Lady, The Music, The Legend - something to look forward to!
I have read on the web that Diahann Carroll: The Lady. The Music. The Legend. was not only taped for a PBS special airing in August but it was also recorded for a CD and DVD release. Let's hope this is true! Until we get a new release from Diahann, let's take a look at a great live performance she did at the Rosie O'Donnell show when she was promoting her wonderful The Time of My Life album.
Why not kick it off with a wonderful clip featuring Diahann with non other than Judy Garland. Taken from the Judy Garland show, first showed February 16, 1964, it features songs by Richard Rodgers and Harold Arlen. Now my friends, this is how it's done!
