Wikipedia : This day (December 14, 1963), in Detroit, Michigan, died Ruth Lee Jones a.k.a Dinah Washington, an American Blues, R&B, Gospel, Pop and Jazz singer.

@Verve : Jazz critic Leonard Feather caught her with the Hampton band that December at Harlem’s Apollo and convinced Keynote Records to sponsor her debut session, but recording opportunities proved scarce while she was in Hampton’s employ.

@allmusic : Dinah Washington was at once one of the most beloved and controversial singers of the mid-20th century — beloved to her fans, devotees, and fellow singers; controversial to critics who still accuse her of selling out her art to commerce and bad taste.

@last.fm : With “What A Diff’rence A Day Makes” 1959, Washington won a Grammy Award for Best rhythm and blues Performance; the song was her biggest hit, reaching #8 on the Billboard Hot 100.
