i recently bought the 4-cd set young anita, which was a very good idea indeed, but despite that, still put this on this morning.  not a very long set, but anita’s in surprising good form (see taper’s notes below) and it’s a very warm performance.  an added bonus (for me, anyway) is tete montoliu on piano!

the cd cover uses a screenshot from a 10-minute video of the performance.

tapers notes:
anita o’day does a short, 20 min set at the antibes jazz festival, coinciding with the release
of bert stern’s film, “jazz on a summer day.” 1966 was disasterous for her image, found
unconscious in a los angeles office building with a hypodermic needle dangling from her arm.

“three-quarters of the time, i was higher than a kite,” she noted in her memoir, “high times hard

after listening to this bootleg, i wanted to go get some heroin, and see if it would improve my singing.

here’s toots thielemans’ european quartet live in oosterhout.  this was actually just posted on dime by “dutch_master” earlier this year (and it’s only 14 jan), but after a couple of listens i thought it should be one of few shows that get up here almost immediately.  a great recording by the late “old dutch master”!

the cover uses screenshots from youtube, and is a riff on the cover of the european quartet live cd (which has material from concerts in 2006, ’07 and ’08).
