I love jazz because how could you not love
JAZZ! It's amazing and one of America's
only original forms of
I was first exposed to jazz because of my
parents and their wonderful tastes in
I met Frank Foster in college and he told
me he loved the timbre of my voice. Sigh...
The best show I ever attended was jazz
singer Nancy Wilson.
The first jazz record I bought was the
Complete Ella Fitzgerald Song Books.
My advice to new listeners always be

My House Concert Story
Back in the 90's, my amazing parents
wanted to create a fabulous opportunity
for young artists in my community to be
able to perform. So a group of us in the
South Carolina State University Jazz
Ensemble came together people and from
that Valentines Day Concert, Jazz in
Residence was born! Over the years we
have had mainly Christmas Events in
multiple cities hosted by family and
friends. I cannot wait to bring this back
this year. I will definitely keep you posted!
