What a wonderful legacy. I came across this obit today.
https://www.nytimes.com/2020/09/04/arts/salome-bey-dead.html?referringSource=articleShare I have a CD by Andy Bey & the Bey Sisters. It’s an album from the mid ‘60s. The Bey Sisters here are Salome and Geraldine.
https://www.amazon.com/Andy-Bey-Sisters/dp/B00004YLK2 I saw in the obit a quote from Salome’s sister Geraldine deHaas. That name rang a bell because she was on one of my favorite albums—an unlikely candidate, given that it’s a collection of Paul Anka songs. But she and Frank D’Rone really nailed them. https://www.discogs.com/DRone-And-De-Haas-Sing-Anka/release/6031507
I then found this interview with Geraldine. Man, what a great lady she is! She brought White and Black audiences together in Chicago using jazz as the glue! https://www.pbs.org/video/chicago-tonight-july-18-2013-geraldine-de-haas/ This woman inspires me to keep trying to figure out what it is that I want to “do” about my love for jazz.
