Thank you, Blues Foundation.
I hope you will indulge me as I briefly take a side step to my main scene, the jazz and blues world. I was pleasantly surprised when The National Blues Foundation informed me that they would be inducting into their Hall of Fame a book I wrote forty years ago. It is a biography of the great blues singer, Bessie Smith. The awards ceremony was held in Memphis on May 9, 2012.
