Singer Keely Smith, who was primarily known for her partnership with bandleader Louis Prima throughout the 1950's, passed away this past Saturday at the age of 89. The manic energy that Prima always brought to their comedic/musical stage performances was countered by Smith, who would often react with a deadpan sideye and mocking of his exuberance (when she wasn't busy dissolving into giggles herself). But she could sing too. Boy, could she sing.
