i shall never forget the night in 1993.

the first snow in manhattan. a sunday.

i had read in the vv of a great chanteuse at the tavern on the green. and she was closing that night.

my girlfriend and i walked from park and 57th to catch her last set.

what a great voice. and what great accompanists. jay leonhardt on bass. chris marlowe on piano.

i continue to think her voice was one of the best i ever encountered. and that marlowe's arrangements were supreme.

after that performance, i never failed to try and catch her shows when travelling into manhattan.

a heartbreaking demise in 1996.

i miss her. you might still find her cd's. tune in. i think you will enjoy her talent.
