Liner Notes

Anita O’Day

Born in Chicago 1919 and was a well-known Jazz singer. Her nickname in some circles was “The Jezebel of Jazz”. She helped to define a new approach to Jazz while she quested for a sense of restraint and boundaries in her ways while still looking for freedom and new venues to explore. She developed her own sense of rhythm and dynamics and remained an individual. Showing that we can remain both contained yet still be inspired simultaneously.
