Little Eva

I was just in an Eva Cassidy mood tonight - what a talent, what a loss.

What A Wonderful World

Over The Rainbow

You've Changed

Cheek To Cheek

She is wonderful! Just looked her up on Amazaon and found 100 listings. Can you recommend her "must have" albums?

She is fabulous, I have 5 CDs of hers - and there is a bit of overlap on them. My order of preference would be:
1)Live at Blues Alley
2)Eva by Heart
5)American Tune

They are all great, so it is really just a matter of which songs you prefer. She really is quite amazing.

I should say, as far as 'must have', Live at Blues Alley is pretty much her definitive work....

but the others are great, too. :-)

Thanks so much! I just ordered your top 3. The range and control of her voice was beautiful in the video you attached. Remarkable given the fact that it was live AND she was playing a guitar. I am looking forward to hearing her studio work. Thank you for the great suggestion!

I just got one of her CDs from a co-worker. :-)
