May she Rest in Peace.
Had the privilege of seeing her perform at my high school back in the 70's. This was a school assembly where she did a couple of solo pieces and then played with backing by our band teacher (Mr Flo) and others who were locally famous jazz musicians. They even had a couple of band students play with them. Even though I did not know who she was, I had been listening to jazz for a year or two so seeing live jazz motivated me dig deeper into the music. She was an articulate and enthusiastic ambassador for jazz.
Thank You Cody, we are forever Grateful!
