Doctors messed up Ms. O'Day's tonsil removal when she was a child. Consequently, she claimed, she couldn't perform vibrato.

But out of the ashes came a phoenix. Forced to keep her vocal phrasing short, she sang instead as if her voice were a drum or a bass, punctuating each phrase rhythmically.

This performance is from the documentary "Jazz on a Summer's Day," which a decade ago the Library of Congress placed in the National Film Registry.

Personnel:

Anita O'Day, vocals
Jimmy Jones, piano
Whitey Mitchell, bass
John Poole, drums
