It was during a time in Los Angeles where homages to the sounds of John Coltrane were very apparent. Everyone had written a
type of "Prayer". Our name for it. A somber durge dedicated
to the master John Coltrane. Abbey sang 3 of her many compo-
sitions to the delight of the crowd. We on the other hand wanted
to swing and create a little soul in the genre of Horace Silver. While we were received well, we felt that our real message was
unable to penetrate the perceptions of the crowd. When she
passed away a few days ago, I was shocked that she was 80!
