a mention here of finding data via the
internet..(as still new to me)
the article on toni harper broke my heart
and moved me to this reply.
years ago, (late 60's) we worked in a club
here in SF and became friends.
lost track of her whereabouts but always
had the treasured albums and of course,
the memories.
I never knew of the first album with oscar
peterson..and have yet to hear it.
this may be ahead for me..
and it's satisfying to know that she is
alive and well..and my thoughts go out to her. hope this is forwarded as intended.

I enjoyed reading this. I've been slowly collecting Toni's singles and wonder if she has a sessionography. I am trying to convince Fresh Sound to release all of her singles from the 1950s forward on a CD. I'm also wondering if there were any unreleased songs in her catalog.

Great to know this talented lady is also a very nice one.
