My Two Favourite Gals!

Had to share this Facebook post by Daryl - Lance.
----- 
Just in time for Jewish New Year! I have finally found the box and folder with this (to me) very significant photo. Not only does it document my first appearance on Marian McPartland's Piano Jazz (spring of 1994) an honor that paved the way for a major career turn. After our session that very day I told Marian I was auditioning for a gig at the Waldorf=Astoria. "Good luck, honey" she said and boy did that do the trick. Even more special was our friendship that developed through these many years. I deeply miss her. She was and always will be my best role model on so many levels.

I saw this earlier on FB - isn't it great! What memories! Plus, how wonderful to have Daryl with us at the Classic Jazz Party this year, with her inimitable style.
