Odetta, R.I.P.

Obit here. Oh boy, what a loss this is. The last time I saw her was at NOLA's Jazz Fest in 2004. At that venue, it's possible to get a front row seat without hassle or price. It was one wonderful performance, as all of hers were. She ended her set by letting the audience in on a couple of truths, one was that tonight they better use condoms & that in the fall they had better NOT vote for George Bush. Too bad.
