"Her Lady Sings the Blues (1972) drew praise from jazz circles, and it was a big seller."

I am puzzled by that assertion. We were only about 15 minutes into the movie when Carmen McRae left the Paramount screening room in tears—she was outraged. And so, I believe, was the jazz community. The film was as fictionalized as the book it purportedly came from.

A few years later, Suzanne De Passe, who wrote the screenplay, called me to express an interest in optioning my Bessie Smith biography. When I told her that I was not interested, because I had seen what they did with Billie, she assured me, "We don't do that anymore."

I've loved Diana's music as far back as I can remember. Thanks for the post! Also, I would really like to thank you for turning me onto Joe Alterman's music.

It also looks like this Friday I'll be going to Highline Ballroom in NYC to see McCoy Tyner. Just thought you be interested!

LOVE THE EXPANED TOUCH ME IN THE MORNING CD.

THE "TO THE BABY" IS BEAUTIFUL. LOVELY AND TENDER TREATMENTS ON THESE SONGS.
DIANA ROSS SOUNDS FRESH ON "GOT TO BE THERE"
"TO THE BABY" IS JUST THE COOLEST LOVE SONG
FROM A MOM TO HER DAUGHTER. AND IT HAS A NICE R&B FEEL.
ALL OF THE ALTERNATES AND UNRELEASHED STUFF IS SO NICE TO HEAR WITH JUST ENOUGH IN THE WAY OF "EXTENDED" VERSION WITHOUT MIXING THE CRAP OUT OF IT.

LOVELY JOB.
