Considered one of the most influential jazz vocalists of the 20th century, it was her behind-the-beat phrasing and her ironic interpretations of song lyrics that made her memorable.

She went on to record over 60 albums, enjoying a rich musical career, performing and recording in the United States, Europe and Japan.
