Bebop Spoken There

Noah Haidu: "He [Kenny Kirkland] had zero interest in having a public persona and seeking out record-label attention; he didn't have an interest in becoming known." - (Jazz Times January/February 2021)

This I had to Hear!

When I read the review below I had to find out more.
It was a voyage of discovery. How come I'd missed out on Mary Stallings? We're about the same age. Don't make the same mistake - check her out.
“Stallings sounds like Carmen McRae with some Dinah Washington sass thrown in. Stallings doesn't flit around or complicate her singing with oblique swirls and curlicues like many younger jazz singers. She stays closer to the blues, laying down the ballad ‘Sunday Kind of Love’ with fine, feminine ardor.” - Philadelphia Inquirer

Getting hit by a curlique isn't funny Liz - it's almost as painful as listening to an Andrew Lloyd Webber song.

Her daughter is an R and B singer called Adriana Evans whose Godfather was tenor saxist Pharoah Sanders.
Adriana has made it to YouTube which is more than her mother has!
Ain't no justice.
