Her 1995 "Rock Me To Sleep" with Benny Carter still moves me.

Thanks, Tom. I assume most of us associated with Festival Productions got 
the same message from Sue Auclair. I apologize for not naming the source.

This is all the notice I need to go public with the announcement regarding 
Ruth Brown.  ALOHA  Tom

For Immediate Release:

I have just received word from my colleagues at Festival Productions that 
the great Ruth Brown passed away this morning.  Evidently she had been on 
life support.

I have no other information at this time.

One of my fondest memories of Ruth was when she sang so beautifully at the 
funeral of our friend, LaVern Baker.

Another memory was hanging out with her backstage at the Rockport Rhythm & 
Blues Festival in Newport, Rhode Island when she showed up backstage in a 
hot pink pant suit with a big bowler hat in order to say hello to Aretha in 
her trailer.  Aretha opened her trailer door and shouted, "Hey baby!  Come 
on in!!"
