What a beauriful, smokey voice, rip.
Eva lived in the Washington D.C. area, and I was fortunate to see her perform several times before her untimely death from cancer in 1996. She was a wonderful singer and a beautiful person. Her signature song was "Over the Rainbow".
Check out the album Live at Blues Alley.
Beautiful,,, I'm in this moment of discovery with her. I love the way she offsets the phrasing in this classic. It sounds fresh.
I'm an Eva Cassidy fan since our vocalist pointed her out to me a while back. Great voice and decent guitarists. RIP indeed.
This never fails to bring tears to my eyes...she had the voice of an angel.
What a wonderful world, is my fav of hers. The first 2 lines alone were enough to grab me.
Eva had the purest voice I’ve ever heard. Gone far too soon
Wow! Thanks for sharing this. I'd not heard of her before this.
Much like Alison Krauss, Eva Cassidy had something so pure and intense in her delivery, all the popular contrived warblers and oversingers don't stand a chance. Hits me every time.
My favorite by her:
Unfortunately I also only "Discovered" Eva Cassidy after her untimely passing. An amazingly talented vocalist - I love everything I've heard that she's done.
If you just discovered her can you honestly describe as timeless?
Timeless as in the smokey singers,,
Another vote for Live at Blues Alley. Mesmerizing.
Yeah, this thread made go and listen to Eva all evening. Powerful stuff.
I spent many nights in Blues Alley while in DC but She had passed by the time I got there.
I also did not hear of her until shortly after her passing. Live at Blues Alley is such a good record. It must have been great to see her live.
Reminds me of Karen Carpenter and Diana Krall
Somehow I had, until tonight, never heard (of) her.
Am deeply moved by her voice. Thank you for posting ...
