This is the song that got me hooked on Lady Day. But it was Sarah Vaughn’s version that made Sassy my Idol as a singer. Smoothest pipes I ever heard. And that vibrato.
And you want to talk blues. It didn’t get any more bluer than this. Written from what the eyes had seen and the soul experienced. This song defined living the blues.
Now we are into My Inspirations, and solely into who turned me on to the blues at age 12. From them I then went into the depths to learn where it all really started.
ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND
