Abbey Lincoln 1930-2010


Indigo said...

Beautiful lyrics. Thanks for the introduction, only wish I could have discovered her sooner. (Hugs)Indigo

David Barber said...

I'm pretty open when it comes to music. (Except manufactured boy/girl bands who win money making competitions...don't get me started!!)

I've never heard of Abbey Lincoln before, but she had a very unique voice and one I could listen to. That song had a very French sound to it and as Indigo said, beautiful lyrics.

Thanks, David.

David Cranmer said...

Indigo, Same here. Wish I could have seen her in concert.

David, That's her at, I believe, seventy-seven. An incredible voice to the end.

Diane said...

Very nice, Dave. Abbey Lincoln is new to me but I love her smooth style. I will look to download some of her music.

Dave King said...

I echo Indigo's thoughts exactly. Terrific lyrics and voice.

David Cranmer said...

Diane, I would start with Abbey Sings Abbey from 2007.

Dave, Glad you enjoyed it.
