Ottilie patterson with chris barber's jazz band - blues


Ottilie Patterson was born in Comber, Co in 1932: her father Joseph was a local man, while her mother, Julia Jegers was from Latvia. She took piano lessons from the age of nine and although she trained as a classical pianist, she had no singing lessons. She studied art at the Belfast College of Technology and became entranced when a fellow student lent her some jazz records. She thought that Bessie Smith's "Reckless Blues" was the best thing she had heard. She wanted to sing the blues herself and as there were no blues bands in the area, she would get up with Jimmy Compton's Jazz Band, and then formed her own Muskrat Ramblers.
