Glad you like that memoir Dr. Bil Hawkins wrote about me. Also there
is the blog about me called "A Lady And Her Trumpet" always appended
at the end of my signature. I read Kind Of Blue: The Making Of The
Miles Davis Masterpiece by Ashley Kahn and Jimmy Cobb proofread and
photo described by Grandma Cindy and scanned by me, it is a great must
read when you have the album to listen to at the same time! I also
went to a great concert, Chris Botti at the SF Davies Symphony Hall
July 15 with my dad and Chris had mentioned Davis Flamenco Sketches
which happens to be part of Kind Of Blue! It all tied in with my
reading and that made my night just being there, I feel revived as a
trumpeter and proofreader! I'm still working on a project gathering
books for a couple fellow volunteers from this group.

"To me, music that breaks your heart is the music that stays with you
forever. It's one thing to be melancholy and one thing to be sophisticated,
but when you get the two of them together in a way people can relate to,
then I think you're on to something. You want the sophistication to lie in
the purity of the sound, the beauty of the arrangements, and the quality of
the performances."-Trumpeter Chris Botti
