Medley: Linda / Linda

by Linda Kosut

I thought I was named after actress Linda Darnell - but maybe my folks named me for "Linda" (Harold Arlen & Ted Koehler, 1930), or perhaps "Linda" (Jack Lawrence, 1946, which he wrote for his lawyer's 5-yr old daughter, Linda Eastman, aka McCartney)

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The medley of "Linda" features Kosut on vocals and Dave Austin at the piano.

Kosut is a Bistro Award winning cabaret/jazz singer known for singing a repertoire from the known standards to the obscure - always with fresh interpretations. She brings honesty and authenticity to her music and performances which are enchanting and engaging, and with her warm alto and storytelling skills, she has gained fans and accolades from coast to coast.

ABOUT THIS MEDLEY: "Linda" (1946) composed by Jack Lawrence and "Linda" (1930) with music by Harold Arlen and lyrics by Ted Koehler, is a delightful mash up. In preparation for her birthday concert in 2016, Kosut thought she'd sing these 2 tunes, one of which she always knew (the Lawrence tune). Throughout her life, she thought that she was named after the actress, Linda Darnell, but perhaps it was these songs that inspired her naming. And in researching these songs, she discovered that the "Linda" written by Jack Lawrence was written at the request of his attorney, who at that time, in 1946 had a 5-year old daughter named Linda. That Linda, Linda Eastman, went on to become Linda McCartney! Now that's a great story!

“Kosut brings her skills as an actress to her insightful interpretations of songs underscored with a fusion of jazz, pop and folk.” - Don Heckman, The International Review of Music
