In 2021, there are bridges to gap!
There is the gap between generations.
There is the gap between men and women.
There is the gap between the church and state.
There is the gap between the academy and the community.
There is the gap between the haves and have nots on so many levels.
There is the gap between the brick wall or the glass ceiling and success.
There is the gap between the cultured and the uncultured, whatever that may mean.
My response to Andromeda Turre who asked me what it means to be a woman in jazz.
Being a woman in jazz is the crux of my existence. 70 years ago, I sang Somebody Loves Me, onstage. The footlights mesmerized me. But the music captured my heart. In my later years, promoting women musicians, globally, is my mission for Women in Jazz South Florida, Inc. Visit us at www.wijsf.org
