BMV#1: Eva Cassidy – American Tune

The only disc I found in the 3-for-$10 bin that needed to come home.

This bluesy beautiful set contains covers of Ray Charles, Billie Holiday, Paul Simon, Duke Ellington, Lennon-McCartney and Cyndi Lauper (among others). The sound is clear and roomy, and the band is on point. This one’s just more proof of her brilliance. She died far too young (at 33, in 1996). May she RIP.

    What an incredible voice she had. Such a sad story -dying so young. And although she never lived to see her talent become appreciated as it now is- it is great that someone did ‘discover’ her and that all the music she recorded is out there for everyone to enjoy. Makes me feel sad though.
