I recently purchased and viewed the Anita O’Day DVD in the Jazz Icons series.
I am writing to you, Doug, because you wrote the fine liner notes. What I’d really like to do is write to Anita, but that is no longer possible.
What a revelation this DVD is! How marvelous her artistry is!
Too often, I buy a CD or DVD and am disappointed. Not this time. This DVD exceeded my expectations, which were already high.
For those who haven’t yet seen it, be prepared to fall in love.
