Vocalist, songwriter and friend Phoebe Snow passed away this morning of complications from a brain hemorrhage she suffered in January 2010. New York Times obituary here. The fact that so many at Birdland knew and loved Phoebe first hand, from her frequent performances at Monday nights’ “Cast Party” and as a headliner, is testament to her versatility and broad stylistic appeal as well as her humility and genuine enthusiasm for all types of music. Our deepest condolences to her family and friends.
