Ottilie Patterson

Descansi en pau Ottilie Patterson, probablement la millor cantant britànica de jazz i blues, i parella del gran Chris Barber. The Guardian té un bon article sobre la seva figura:
Patterson cited the band's visit to the Smitty's Corner blues club in Chicago's South Side as her single most rewarding experience. After responding to an invitation to come up and sing with Muddy Waters's band, she heard one African-American lady patron call out, "Hey, lady, you sing real pretty. How come you sing like one of us?"
