In 1938, over her parents’ strong objections, she left school to go on tour with a four-piano vaudeville act. “My mother said, ‘Oh, you’ll come to no good, you’ll marry a musician and live in an attic,’ ” she recalled in 1998. “Of course, that did happen.”

Very sad. She was a very enjoyable and informative fixture on the radio here in Philly.

May she Rest in Peace.
Had the privilege of seeing her perform at my high school back in the 70's. This was a school assembly where she did a couple of solo pieces and then played with backing by our band teacher (Mr Flo) and others who were locally famous jazz musicians. They even had a couple of band students play with them. Even though I did not know who she was, I had been listening to jazz for a year or two so seeing live jazz motivated me dig deeper into the music. She was an articulate and enthusiastic ambassador for jazz.
Thank You Cody, we are forever Grateful!
