Today is the 99th birthday of legendary singer Lee Wiley. One could traipse the length and breadth of the land in search of Wiley "product" in so-called big box stores such as Target and Best Buy and in all likelihood not come up with a single Wiley CD. But that does not alter the fact that she is one of the greatest purveyors of jazz singing in the history of the art form. Here are a couple of the Wiley entries that have appeared on this blog over the past few years of its existence.
And a clip on youtube from a Japanese TV documentary about Wiley that I posted a while back.
