DVD Revisits Career of Recently-Deceased Jazz Great - Blue eyed soul at its very best!
O'Day: The Life of a Jazz Singer
Excellent (4 stars)
Born in a broken home in Chicago in 1919, Anita
Belle Colton had such a rough childhood that she ran away from
home in her early teens. Initially, she supported herself by
entering contests on the dance marathon circuit which was the
rage all across the country during the 1930s. When she tired of
this line of work, she started singing professionally at the
tender age of 16.
