From jazz to pop to R&B, Lynda was beloved for her piano bar blues. She'd play into the night, taking requests, remembering everyone's favorite song. Here, in 2006, she performs a Blackbird medley (Lennon and McCartney's Blackbird melded with Ray Henderson's Bye bye blackbird ) before a dinner crowd at Mozambique, a favorite venue in Laguna beach, California.
