We interrupt this fine Johnny Cash Sunday to say “Happy Mother’s Day!”
“In keeping with the “rules” of Jazz, Anita never sings a song the same wqy twice. Her tunes will have as many choruses as there are “gigs”. This 1975 Live concert in Tokyo is a real pleasure that falls just short of TOP 30 material. Mostly because there are a few flaws in the album due to probably being played so much. And the who took that cover photo? Could it be a ,ore unflattering angle, lol? It’s lovely lady jazz, you betcha. She’s saucy on here.
There are rumours that she admitted being high on heroine often and this video is full of similar comments from 1957. At 2 mins it’s pretty great.
This is her in Tokyo 1963 ! She was gorgeous then.
