If only all jazz musicians had spouses like Laurie and Sue. Bless their hearts, for the music lives on!

Very insightful article Marc, thank you.

Rab Hines

Two other savvy jazz spouses come to mind; Lil Hardin Armstrong (a formidable musician in her own right), and Gladys Hampton. I would have loved to have met the first and I'm glad I never met the second.

Thanks again for another interesting take on the music scene.
