I began digging Anita when I was 5 or 6 years old, hearing "Let Me Off Uptown" and "Chickery Chick" on the radio. I was able to see Anita several times: at Chicago's Maryland Hotel in 1958-9, at Marty's in NYC in the early 80s, her 50th anniversary concert at Carnegie Hall in 1985, and at Fat Tuesday's in 1991. Had a chance to chat with her and Gordon Brisker at that last gig. I am still digging Anita as much as, perhaps even more than, ever and have recently purchased a few CDs I didn't have as well as the Tokyo DVD. Only Lady Day approaches Anita in my pantheon of jazz singers. Man, how she enriched my musical life!

Anita was arguably the most rhythmically sophisticated singer in the history of jazz. A fantastic, sweet and creative voice. Perhaps not a household name, but truly an American legend.

On Nov 23,2006 I received one of the worst phone calls I've ever received - I was told of your death. The sorrow isn't quite as bad now, but I still think about you. Play your music and watch your DVDs - you're still the greatest!

Happy Birthday, Anita! I'm still here and thinking of you. Loving your music every day.
