What song would you like played at your funeral?

A song that I write sometime after my 90th birthday.

What is your favorite song to whistle or sing in the shower?

Actually, since I compose a lot of new songs in the shower, I don't want to crowd out the ideas that come to me by singing something already known.

If I weren't a jazz musician, I would be a:

Very sad person; my passion is music, especially jazz. I have been singing it since I was a little girl. I have done other things like write and publish fiction, including an Off-Broadway play. As a co-director of the International Center for Women Playwrights, I brought the organization to the internet in the early '90s, where it became a virtual center with an international board and membership. I've done radio broadcasting and a few other things, but I am only fulfilled professionally when I make music.
