Thinking of our Japanese friends...

It seems odd to notice that my last post was a video of Halie Loren in Japan - she was recently there on a tour and in light of what's been going on there with the devastating earthquake and tsunami - it's eerie..I hope you join with me and prayers and donations of help to many worthwhile aid and rescue operations to help that nation of gracious people and jazz lovers....

Happy birthday to Yvette Tollar - I'm going to sign up for the Women in Jazz Workshop she is presenting with Sheila Jordan the weekend of April 2 and 3rd...
