PIA BECK RIP

Dutch pianist/singer, Pia Beck, died Nov. 26 aged 84. Her lifelong partner Margo died in June.
I recall hearing the Pia Beck Trio on Radio Hilversum in the 1950s and finding her to be a fine Shearing type pianist. I don't remember her singing so much back then but this YouTube clip reveals her to be no slouch. In fact check her out on 'Tube" there's a few examples of her talent - a very engaging personality.
Although she lived in Spain for many years she seems to be still held in high regard in her homeland, Holland.
May she rest in piece.
Lance.
