Pgh has such a rich jazz supporting heritage.I hope it doesn't become a thing of the past.
When I've been back to visit and to sing it has been so disheartening to see fewer and fewer venues still hanging in there.
There are so many really wonderful musicians there ( of course I include singers in that category).
They need the support of each other and of the Pgh audiences and potential employers.
The city needs the positive energy that is created from showing that support.
Music - jazz has the power to connect us to each other ....to lift us up and to transcend the so-called differences that separate us...age, race, ethnicity, gender, politics, religion . . . all of it!
I hope there is a resurgence of supporting live jazz in Pgh in a big way.
It makes a difference.
