Just reading about you for my weekly eNotes newsletter for our local jazz society here in Colorado Springs! I write about a different jazz musician most weeks and this week I picked YOU--because I love you! Looking forward to seeing you at JazzFest at Sea next January, if we don't find you somewhere before then!

Yve, A few years ago, you played a Mother's Day show in Palos Verdes, CA. It was also my birthday, which my dad let you know. As a result, I was invited to sit next to you and be a part of your magical world for while. I thank you for that. The CD is for a woman acquantience who loves Gospel; she's in for an awakening. Happy Mother's Day.

Hi Yve! In Los Angeles, from South Africa where I now live. At my mom and grandmom's house packing it up to be rented out, and came across the video of my wedding 27 years ago, and had an oppotunity to hear your lovely voice. Now long divorced, but have very happy memories of your fanstastic performance that day in Santa Barbara. Many blessings! Teresa

August 10, 2011

Hi Yve,

The lyrics are: Oh, it's somebody's birthday

Their first-time-on-earth day

A time to be happy and gay

This delightful occasion

Is in celebration

Of years that have passed away

So with sunshine and flowers

We'll spend happy hours

We'll laugh, and we'll sing, and we'll play

Now let's all drink a toast

To our most charming host

'Cause it's somebody's birthday today!
