my favorite female singers

Posted on Updated on

this is a photo blog.  not much yammering on my part but once i start sticking the photos in here things might change.  the ladies of song will be in no particular order.  my regular readers know ella fitzgerald is the capo di tutti capi.  nothing more needs to be said in that regard but at some point down the road i’ll yammer on again about that dead black woman i’m in love with.  count on it.

one more thing.  at some point you will or maybe notice that most of the ladies of song presented here as my faves are from the past.  some sorta new ones in the mix but not really.  onward.

sweet ella fitzgerald.

sarah vaughn.

lena horne and barbara lewis.

bessie smith and dinah washington.

billie holiday and nancy wilson.

janis joplin.

joan baez.

linda ronstadt.

tina turner.

etta james and stevie nicks..

patti page.

peggy lee.

patsy cline.

emmylou harris.

there you have them.  they pretty much cover who i like to listen to when i need a ladies singing voice.  there’s probably more than a few on here that some of the younger readers may not have even heard of.  if you enjoy good singing check them out.  it would be worth the time and trouble.

i’m sure you have your favorites so feel free to add them or yammer about them if you feel so inclined.  just remember these are my favorites not yours.

    thanks, gigi. i appreciate your kind words. these ladies have whole catalogs of songs. some more than others. what i may like may not be your taste. if you are interested songs by any of them should be easy enough to find on the net.
