Singin’ on Sunday – Connie Evingson

I was in Seattle a couple of weeks ago at the tail end of a wonderful trip to Austin to meet up with all the other Rag folks, and to attend to some other foolishness (e.g., my 40th high school reunion). I had planned before I left to stop for a night in the Emerald City to see Pearl Django play at Jazz Alley. Also on the bill was a woman I’d never heard of before, Connie Evingson. Well, let me tell ya, this talent is a real heart-stopper. If you ever see her advertised, don’t even think about it, just buy a ticket.

This is a tune from her album Gypsy in My Soul, titled “Nuages.” It is the Clearwater Hot Club backing her on this recording. When she sang this for us on 30 April, I cried. If you’d like to find out more about her, or hear other samples of her singing, here is her Web site.
