Let the celebration begin!

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.
