Cesaria Evora Ends Her Career

I was sorry indeed to hear that the Cape Verde singer Cesaria Evora, 70, has announced an end to her career because of poor health. There was a point about 8 or 10 years ago when you couldn’t walk into a late-night bar or lounge in New York without eventually hearing one of her mournful tunes. I saw her around that time in concert in the Village at the late, lamented Bottom Line. She was wobbly and forgetful of lyrics. Still, unforgettable.
