We are proud to say that Nancy is from Columbus, Ohio
And she is selling this Etta Jones standard.
Do you suppose the faces are the pressure she felt from seeing the faces of Lena Horne?And I completely agree: a) they are not necessary and b) they're just not something a pretty girl does.What a pretty girl does is start a blog as fabulous as this! Thanks darling Thom.
Cool Cookie: She is awesome, no doubt about it.Felix: I think you're quite right, Miss Horne was definitely an influence on young black female singers of that era. I thought as much while watching a Barbara McNair performance from the same period.And thanks for the compliment, I'm thrilled that you like it here!
in spite of it all, i loved her. must have 30 lps or more.
She's great. Her sister Ann is an awesome singer, too!
Yeah, there was a moment at the end where I thought she was going to jump out of the monitor and strangle me!But seriously, when she sings "The Masquerade Is Over"? sigh...BrianB
Or "Free Again" or "When the World was Young" or "Guess Who I Saw Today", etc...
Imagine her "O" face!
