Farewell to Ottilie Patterson

Legendary jazz singer Ottilie was laid to rest this week in Co Down, it was in complete obscurity. She was 79, and was buried in her native Comber after dying on June 20 in Ayr, Scotland, where she had lived in quiet anonymity for the past 30 years. She rocketed to stardom in the 1950s as a vocalist with the Chris Barber Jazz Band, marrying Chris in 1959 while they were touring and subsequently recording extensively together. Her death has gone unreported in the national media and music Press, mysteriously it seems to have been Ottilie's own wish that there would be no fuss over her death. Obituary.
