Goodbye Whitney Houston.

Whitney Houston may not have been a jazz singer but she had many of the qualities that go to make a jazz singer such as power, originality, distinctive tonal flexibility and an affinity with a lyric that enabled her to get the best out of a song.
In the pop world she reigned supreme until, like so many other jazz and rock icons, she went on a path of  self-destruction. Nevertheless, Whitney, We'll always love you.
R.I.P.
Lance.
