"Eva Cassidy's performance at the Blues Alley jazz club has become musical history. Twenty years on, experience for the first time every song recorded on the night of the 3rd January 1996. Nightbird is Eva Cassidy's ultimate tour-de-force...31 songs recorded in one night at the Blues Alley jazz club in Georgetown, DC. Encompassing the full spectrum of Eva's gospel, blues, jazz and folk roots, Nightbird showcases the breadth and depth of one of the world's finest singers. The recordings have been remixed and remastered from the original tapes resulting in the most sonically engaging Eva Cassidy release to date. Of the 31 songs, 12 are previously unreleased including the title track Nightbird as well as the jazz standards It Don't Mean A Thing (If It Ain't Got That Swing) and Fever. Of the 12 unreleased tracks, 8 are previously unheard songs. These include Son Of A Preacher Man, Route 66, Late in The Evening, Baby I Love You and Caravan."

GREAT 2 CD set of 33 tunes - complete Jan. 3 1996 appearance of Eva at Blues Alley. The recording sounds considerably better than some of the same material on her 'Live at Blues Alley' CD - and the additional material is fun to hear, too!
