The ten re-mastered recordings from the original album are joined here by four bonus alternative acoustic Eva solo performances of songs from the Songbird album.

Stunning vocals and an eclectic mix of mostly original songs by a female duet with folk/celtic roots.
Susan Graham White and Grace Griffith combine their talents as the folk/celtic duet HAZLEWOOD. This duet became wildly popular in the Washington DC area where they produced three albums before moving on to successful solo careers. "Journeys" is the 3rd and last HAZLEWOOD CD, released in 1990. It is highly regarded as their pinnacle achievement, full of gorgeous vocals and outstanding songwriting.
This 2 disc CD set affords everyone the opportunity to experience Eva Cassidy's tour de force performance at Blues Alley jazz club in Washington, DC on January 3, 1996. The Blues Alley performances were recorded for what was to become Eva's only solo album released during her lifetime. The original Live At Blues Alley album only included 12 of the 31 songs recorded that night. Twenty years later, the remastered Nightbird includes all 31 songs, among them 8 unreleased songs performed by Eva.
The songs that comprise Passing Through range from traditional to modern. Their overarching theme mirrors life's complex richness and revelations as observed by someone who has had to deal with more than her share of trials, but never lost touch with the love and truth of the universe.
Grace Griffith chose the songs in this collection with a deep awareness of their meaning and power.
