Frances Lynne at Rifftides

Nice post today by Doug Ramsey on his blog re: the Japanese reissue of singer Frances Lynne's "Remember" CD: . Happy to've played a small role in bringing this lovely work into wider circulation. . .at least in Japan.

Lynne's voice is a pluperfect exemplification of the Japanese quality of "hakanasa,"a word difficult to translate into English. But I think it means sort of “fragility” or“frailty” in a good and highly aesthetic sense.That's probably why they've carried a torch for the late Beverly Kenney for so many years.
