Eva Cassidy.

Post by bimbow on Sun 08 Mar 2015, 00:06

A voice I fell in love with quite some time ago.  And this performance has special personal meaning.  I hope members here like it.

I have never heard that song before. Very beautiful (but sad) song and of course sung beautifully by Eva Cassidy.

Restored footage of Eva Cassidy performing "People Get Ready". The performance took place at the Blues Alley jazz supper club in Georgetown, DC, on the 3rd January 1996.

Eva Cassidy does a beautiful rendition of 'Danny Boy' too.
(A song with very special personal meaning to me also.)

Yet another recording of Eva's versatile voice, with lovely instrumentals and harmonies.

There's something about that voice......



But she spoils it with too many "breaths".........

Such a shame that such obvious talent only came to be fully recognised after her death, at such a young age too. In her prime when the Big C took her.

That track 'Tall Trees in Georgia' is from the album 'Live at Blues Alley'

Other tracks from that album (for anyone that's interested) are:

Live at blues alley
Cheek to cheek
Stormy Monday
Brodge over trouble water
Fine and mellow - No music video
People get ready
Blue skies
Tall trees in Georgia
Fields of gold
Autumn leaves
Honeysuckle rose
Take me to the river
What a wonderful world
Oh, had I a golden thread

You can listen to the whole album at this link:

I found this:

Eva Cassidy website: http://evacassidy.org/

Welcome to the Eva Cassidy Web Site, a resource for those seeking information about the late singer Eva Cassidy.

   Eva died in 1996 from melanoma, the most deadly form of skin cancer. Her music was little-known during her 33 years of life, but today her soul-stirring voice is reaching people all over the world.

   For some fans, the pleasure of listening is enough. Others want to know more: “Who was this remarkable singer? Why haven’t we heard of her before? Are there more albums?” This web page can be your gateway.
