Detroit area private vocal jazz

"She was an organ-trio leader in Cleveland for a number of years and moved back to Detroit in 1964. Her piano trio was a fixture at the near-downtown Rhinoceros Club from 1979 to 1994, and in the 2000s for a long stretch she alternated Tuesday nights with pianist Johnny Allen at Sweet Lorraine’s in Southfield.

She performed at the various incarnations of the Detroit jazz festivals, in the annual Boogie Woogie Festival and the Michigan Jazz Festival. The Southeast Michigan Jazz Associated saluted her for her work as a musician and educator. She recorded solo projects featuring her own tunes alongside classics and always hoped that some other singers would pick up her tunes like “Time Won’t Stop and Changes Keep on Coming,” and maybe her passing will generate a sufficient spark of interest."
