Anne Bushnell was considered the preeminent Irish jazz singer of her generation (she was awarded the freedom of the city of New Orleans in the 80s) but she never got it down on wax.
Her 1977 album consists of pop and contemporary standards with one very good soul/funk track.
She was born into a showbiz family and was singing in ceili bands, appearing in stage musicals and performing with the RTE Light Orchestra by the early Sixties. By the 70s she was appearing on RTE Television regularly, performing in cabaret, singing with the Jim Doherty Band (jazz) and making landmark appearances in stage shows based around the songs of Jacques Brel and Edith Piaf. She was also an in demand session musician and recorded with Family Pride.
Notes: Arranged by Jerry Hughes, produced by Tony Dirizziano.
