Patti Wicks
Vocalist and pianist Patti Wicks, who divided her jazz life between New York and Florida for the past 40 years, recording several well-considered albums since the turn of the new century, died from heart failure March 7 in West Palm Beach, Fla. She was 69-years old.

Wicks belonged to that rarefied group of performers that include Shirley Horn, Nina Simone and Blossom Dearie—vocalists who play piano. Her piano playing was informed by Bill Evans and her singing by Horn. Her vocal delivery was comfortable and conversational and her ballad playing exceptional. Godspeed, Patti Wicks.
