Wow! -- "Anita, oh Anita"!" -- She was so unbelievably *hot*!

I just love it when important jazz people who haven't been heard of for years donate pieces of history - so way groovy people like Mark Meyers can turn all the important memorabilia into a book - and allow all the younger people who are digging their jazz (Hi Robert Glasper) to enrich the lives of many people from all around the world.
