GOOD NEWS...The report from Seattle is that due to the love shown and money donated to the BofA for the Ernestine Anderson Fund. Her house is saved and there is enough money to make the payments for one year. She also has been getting some work from folk on the West Coast. Keep her in mind when you are having any kind of event and need a great jazz singer.
Thanks for all your contributions, prayers and concern. "Momma D"

I invite all my music friends to join in and offer their thoughts and perceptions about anything that is on the table.
I am always looking for new ideas and concepts. I also look to learn each minute of every day. So please... pass on anything. The only time one looks a bit left of center is when they do not choose to offer an opinion.
Ciao & Peace
