We lost Abbey Lincoln a few weeks ago. Pagamaestro has put together this lovely photo collage in memoriam, and this song is so appropriate to sending her off. The musical arrangement and performance are so fine and Lincoln’s vocal just stunning. Lincoln imbues her very wise lyric with experience and passion,and maybe a bit of bourbon, too.
“Throw it away…”
From the 1980 album Panted Lady, recorded in Paris with Archie Shepp.
