This folks, is why I am doing the concert in August! Robin Roberts of GMA
fame most recently, was just diagnosed with a rare form of blood disorder
that comes as a side effect to some cancer treatments. She is a five year
breast cancer survivor and now needs a bone marrow transplant that will
happen late summer early fall.  This has to stop folks...

 Trumpeter Abram Wilson died on Saturday 9 June after a two-week battle with
cancer.  The UK-based musician and educator, who was born and raised in New

new jazz theatre project entitled Philippa, based around the life and times
of mixed-race Harlem-born classical pianist, Philippa Schuyler.
