Termagant Tuesday: “Roses on the Platform,” Yulia Pashkovska

Standard

Man, I wish I had Yulia Pashkovska’s voice.  Her tone is so full and warm without being overwhelming.  Pashkovska was a major Ukrainian jazz singer in the 1960s.  I can’t find much on her, at least in English, so if you have any background on her, *please* share; I’m dying to learn more.

Speaking of more, here’s what’s happening in Ukraine now.  Ukrainian soldiers have rejected Russian demands that they pledge allegiance to the Kremlin, gold and oil prices rose as a reaction to the crisis, and the U.S. has suspended trade and investment talks with Russia.
