Many people know this song from Joni Mitchell’s rendition, but Annie Ross originally wrote these words (to a Wardell Gray sax recording)—and the result was a song that sounded fresh, provocative & (yes) twisted in 1960; still does now. https://t.co/uVppST7I8C

John is tired wrote “Sorry to hear of the passing of Annie Ross. A true icon of jazz singing. A unique stylist the likes of which will not be seen again anytime soon.”
Maureen Beattie wrote “RIP the great Annie Ross. She’ll be singing jazz for Dad in heaven and he’ll regale her with a rendition of The Wedding of Jock MacKay. If Stephan Grapelli can spare a moment from playing Sweet Georgia Brown for Mum he might even join in!”
Janette Galbraith wrote “Annie Ross had the most beautiful voice ! Two Scottish legends passing away so close to each other leaves us culturally bereft, but what a wonderful legacy they’ve left ! Deepest sympathy on your Dad’s passing & hope the funeral goes well !”
