    THANK YOU, LITCHFIELD JAZZ CAMP! We’ll update my bio soon, too! This will be year 20 for me, I think. I started the 2nd year of camp, and my most recent CD “2648 West Grand Blvd” is jazz versions of Motown tunes. It made the top 20 on the JazzWeek Charts! Available at
    Can’t wait to be back to camp weeks 3 and 4! XO
