Default Any other old codgers here that like the music of Laura Fygi

OK, I'm giving away my age, and might get flamed by the young guys here, but;

on the way home today, I heard Laura Fygi sing an old tune, "Good Morning Heartache", with some great harmonica riffs by Toots Thielman, one of the best. (I've played harmonica for more than 50 years, but I can only dream of playing like that). But anyways, she has to be one of my all-time favorites, latin/jazz/old ballads singers ever.

Anyone else here diggin her music?

Never heard of her, so went over to you tube and listened to that song, I like her a lot, gonna have to listen to some more. Never really played the harmonica but i did try to bend some notes for a while so I really appreciated toots talent on that song.

She good ... really good, but I still have a crush on Julie London, so ...

For just weak-knee sexy vocals, the late Dusty Springfield hangs onto the trophy for her version of Burt Bacharach's "The Look of Love" sung for the original 'Casino Royale' soundtrack.

This old codger likes any song by Sarah Vaughn, saw her in person in New Orleans in 1950, I was a 17 year old sailor.

She was on stage with Nat King Cole and Stan Kenton's orchestra.

What a memorable night for a 17 year old kid.

Oh yea, Julie London tracks are on my MP3 player , and Dusty is downright seductive too.

Ray, I like just about anything that Sarah Vaugh did too. One of the greats.

Laura's version of Mack the Knife is not my fav, but this is good:

I don't understand the language, but I DO understand the music

Julie London. My parents where too old to like her and I was to young to know her. She fell in the between ages of big band and rock.
