Here's a video:: Enjoy Annie and some friends!
I got to meet her in 2008, and spent some time with her, and she just reinforced all I saw in her.
Charming, friendly, open and just a joy to reminisce with, about the days of JAZZ in NYC!
|The Amazing Annie Ross|
Then in 2010, just a few short steps from where I use to see Annie and all the greats of the Golden Age of Jazz, on the lower east side of New York City fifty years earlier...I stopped in to see a young woman who had impressed me from what I saw of her on line....I had some friends in town from Vegas, California and Atlantic City, and I literally dragged them to see her.
...and to coin a really 'corny' phrase, my life changed....as a result of that show, and chatting with Greta Panettieri I started this blog and all the other great things that have happened with this blog....
...and Greta Panettieri took over not only as my all time favorite woman in jazz, but we became friends and worked together, and I have learned soooo much from her...
|I have nicknamed her "The Diva'|
.........she has me continually asking myself:: how can I have so much fun with her and be soooo much in awe of her talents. 'The Diva'..xo
