Thanks to Dave Kelbie, lejazzetal, for his tireless work in advocating for and promoting the music and culture of the world of Romany. Dave Kelbie also introduced me to the music of Tcha Limberger and I have not stopped flying since then.
Finallyand most importantlythanks to Tcha Limberger, for opening your extraordinary life and music to my questioning heart and for everything you shared so generously.
I love jazz because I am a singer and jazz inspires me.
I was first exposed to jazz when I was a baby. I grew up in a a musical family.
The best show I ever attended was Dianne Reeves with Romero Lubambo in Rio de janeiro, and Youn Sun Nah at the Vancouver
Jazz festival in 2010.
The first jazz record I bought was Sarah Vaughan.
My advice to new listeners is keep your ears and heart opened for good music.
