I usually write endless lines of text, but today I don’t feel like it.
Anita Belle Colton O’Day, one of the greatest jazz singers of all time, died today.
A true legend.
And still, too many people don’t even know her name.
What a sad, sad day and what a terrible loss.
I’ll need lots of time to write up how much enjoyment I got out of her music and how important she was to me when it comes to discovering jazz. I’ll try to be finished by Christmas.
May she rest in peace.
