Q: What composer's music do you enjoy performing the most?
A: Wow. Great question. I absolutely love Lil Green's work, and Nellie Lutcher. I even recorded Nellie's "Kinda Blue and Low". Then there is the DUKE himself, Duke Ellington who co-wrote "Mood Indigo" with Albany (Barney) Bigard. I'm attached to the lyrics. Do YOU have any favorites?
