Kitty White R.I.P.

Two of my favorite singers in one week. Chris Connor and, now, Kitty White. Twilight of the gods I tell you. Twilight of the gods.

White perhaps qualifies as the most underrated jazz vocalist of all time. Maybe there should even be a picture of her beside that adjective in the dictionary. The sad fact of the matter is, she probably would not even have rated this L.A. Times obituary were it not for her Elvis Presley connection.
