ABC-Wednesday

Round 21 – R

 

Hi Everybody, a very good- morning / -afternoon / -evening!

Today I want to introduce a Dutch Lady who has earned the title of being the greatest Jazz-singing artist The Netherlands has had so far. She was born in Rotterdam on december 21st 1924 and passed away on july 28, 2013. She often performed with her husband who was a wonderful musician as wel. Her name is Rita Reys. I could tell al lot about her but you can all read it HERE

So without further… wishing you lots of joy listening to her… the song I’ve chosen is very appropriate for the time of year and one of my favorites by her also:

Have a splendid, ♥-warming ABC-day / – week!

    Rita Reys – me thinks every Dutch person of my time knows of her, even the ones not interested in jazz.!

    So far I can write always the same text : Never heard of (her) or him. There must be at least one famous Dutch singer in the world ?? Even the Belgians have Lotti and Stromae and Brel ! These are the once coming in my mind right now !

    1. Melody schreef:

      That is not a problem to me Gattina, it gives me pleasure to introduce to other (non-Dutch) people Dutch artists…

      Ehhh well…I guess there are but I can think of one right this moment.

      Belgium does indeed, I know those ones at least 😉 Clouseau also

    i haven’t visited your blog for a while but looks like you have a new look – loving it!!

    1. Melody schreef:

      Hi LadyInRead

      Me to, I am glad to read that you like it too.

      That is okay. Not a problem at all.
      I often change my themes / layouts. The layout you now see will be gone by Saturdayevening because it is about a Dutch feast (november 11th) so starting november 12th, it will get a new layout, about another Dutch feast we celebrate on dec. 5th. and after that the layout will be about christmas/new year
