Q:  Tell me about your concert, "Here's to Life"

A:  I love the song, which was done by the late Shirley Horn.  They lyrics are great.  People feel at a certain age, they have to stop.  I know that is not true. All of us have gifts.  I have not had vocal training, but I can sing.  You make what ever happen, happen.  I am now making it happen for me.  Joining me as host for the show, is. Reginald Torian, lead singer of The Impressions.  His presence and experience brings a wonderful flavor to the evening.

Q:  What do you communicate through your music?

A:  Jazz is back and you don't have to listen to screaming and hollering to get a message across.  My music is smooth, sensual and war.  I like being laid back.  I like lyrics, because lyrics have a message.  Jazz has a message.  I might take a contemporary song and jazz it up.

Q:  How would you describe your music?

A  Smooth and sultry.

Q:  Who is your favorite singer?

A:  Nancy Wilson, without a shadow of a doubt.  I opened for her about four years ago at the Country Club Hills venue.
