She left us in 90, her biographers tell us. We don't believe a word of it and the vivid memory of this album Swingin'; Easy, brings her back to life in the sunshine of her thirties, the incredibly rich and warm timbre, the astounding technical mastery, the perfect diction and that je ne sais quoi that makes the heart and the body vibrate. At the age of all the nerve, she is the only one who knows how to combine an incomparable technique with a supreme sensitivity: mastered control of the breath, subtle modulation of the intonations, incarnation of the feelings, never a voice has so perfectly materialized the spirit of the words. A musician among majestic musicians, pianists Jimmy Jones and John Malachi, drummer Roy Haines, bassists Richard Davis and Joe Benjamin, she delivers an immortal album that will forever be part of the "essentials" of jazz history.
