Celebrating our history in music…

Lena Horne & Count Basie

Lena Horne and Count Basie in the 40’s.

Now before you ask, no, I did not take this wonderful photograph nor was I there when it was taken. I found this wonderful gem while surfing the web and wanted to share it.

I have not been blogging much these days. I am working on a big project for work that has taken much of my waking hours. Soon, I will be done and back to writing. In the meantime, I have been listening to some good music that I will tell you about real soon.

I went to see McCoy Tyner, Pharaoh Sanders, Ravi Coltrane, Charnett Moffett, and Eric Harland in concert last week. It was great show. I found out yesterday that Eric Reed and Paula West are playing The Plush Room in San Francisco through Sunday. That is definitely a nice choice for the upcoming Hallmark holiday this weekend. πŸ™‚

Be back soon!

    Wow! That photo is indeed a gem!! I wish you had taken it so that I could drive us to the Bank! πŸ™‚ Do you know how old Lena was in the photo? She looks in her 20’s if not younger. Very nice photo! Thanks for sharing.
