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.
