And Dakota in particular. Thanks to her we saw Dakota at a small jazz club in Cambridge, Mass. maybe (I’m guessing here) 20 years ago. Club so small that when she came off stage we got a chance to talk to her briefly. I don’t recall much about the show but I remember her being happy to meet such a rapturous fan. And my stepmother was thrilled. Thanks for the reminder. LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Thank you for sharing your family’s wonderful experience with meeting Mrs. Staton. Meeting legends is something you never forget. Welcome to my blog! LikeLike Reply I remember hearing that about her years ago. She was very talented artist. When people discuss jazz they don’t mention her very much. I think she was very under rated. I checked out your Tumblr page. It’s pretty cool! You have some good stuff on that page.

I don’t recall her story was told in that doc, but I stumbled upon her bio while researching the sistas whose stories were featured in that documentary. It’s sooo many greatly talented sistas that got lost in herstory/history. “I checked out your Tumblr page. It’s pretty cool! You have some good stuff on that page.” Thanks! I’m glad you like it. Feel free to stop by anytime. LikeLiked by 1 person Reply I need to create a Tumblr account though.lol LikeLike Leave a Reply Cancel reply Enter your comment here...
