Betty Roche was another discovery. I’m going to borrow from Pedro Martinez and give Jeff “My Daddy” Kingston his props. I found this at his place in Gunma last summer, filed it away into the IPod, and it has been working on me ever since. Part Sarah Vaughn, part Dinah Washington, this woman has major personality and phrasing to run with the best. Does anyone know how and why she disappeared, scarcely leaving a trace?
She has two other discs on Amazon, both strong.
