RIP Aretha

The sad, but not unexpected, news that Aretha Franklin, the undisputed Queen of Soul, died today has left music lovers of all genres in mourning.
Gospel and soul were how the world saw her but, in the early days of her rise to fame jazz was her marketing label. And even when that fame arrived most of the jazz audience still claimed her as one of their own. That jazz feel was always there, as it was/is with most soul singers.
To say she will be sadly missed is the understatement of this, her 76th year, and, although there were millions who said a little prayer for Aretha, it wasn't enough.
Rest In Peace.
Lance.
