Death of legendary jazz singer

The Scottish singer Annie Ross who carved a space in the heart of New York’s jazz scene has died in the city at 89.

As a kid she appeared with Judy Garland, as an adult with Satchmo and Count Basie.

She had flings with Kenny Clarke and Lenny Bruce. Not many could claim those elusive scalps.
