Monday’s remembrance of pianist Hod O’Brien, who died over the weekend, included this:
O’Brien was married to singer Stephanie Nakasian, with whom he frequently collaborated. Their daughter, also a vocalist, performs under the name Veronica Swift.
Ms. Swift (pictured) inherited her parents’ musicality, including her mother’s vocal skill. In a video made last year at Heidi’s Jazz Club in Cocoa Beach, Florida, she sings a classic standard song by Eddie DeLange and Jimmy Van Heusen. Her accompanist and the piano soloist is Ron Teixeira, leader of the house band at Heidi’s.
