Phoebe Snow, a great singer and reportedly an admirable person as well, has died. She was not a friend of mine, nor even an acquaintance. But her music was wonderful, and I’m sad to see her go.

Rob Paparozzi, one of the elite harp player/singers on the New York scene, recorded at least twice with Snow, once on Rob’s record “Etruscan Soul,” where Snow sang a verse on Rob’s cover of Delbert McClinton’s “Monkey Around.” Rob also recorded chromatic harmonica for Snow’s song “Something Real” in 2008. Here’s a link to the song on Youtube. There’s a lot of soul in there.
