Anita O’Day’s “Sweet Georgia Brown” is a favorite of mine.
She was a master of phrasing. Without messing with the melody much, Anita took jazz standards and turned it into a rhythmic master piece. Like a dance, she slowed down and speed up her phrasing, weaving around the pulse of the song, yet always hit her marks with the band.
