This collection is a tribute to Eva Cassidy
, the singer, guitarist and arranger who died in 1996 at the tragically early age of 33. Thankfully her wonderful interpretations of jazz, folk, gospel, spiritual and contemporary pop songs are now widely available as recordings.
This collection of three songs are taken from the posthumously released anthology album Songbird
. It was her version of Harold Arlen's Over the Rainbow
from the Wizard of Oz that made Cassidy's name famous, and it couldn't be more different that Judy Garland's 1939 rendition. Her adaptation of the 1947 classic Autumn Leaves
seems to create a completely new song altogether. The final item in the collection is the up-beat spiritual Wade in the Water
