Amanda Ambrose was an amazing artist and we were dear friends.  We worked the Rainbow Room in NYC together and I had her guest with me at the Clearwater Jazz Festival .  I also brought down the great Milt Hinton that night for his 80th birthday and Milt was the bass player on Amanda’s classic trio albums in the 60s.  She was with Harry Belafonte  along with Miriam Mikeba and had her own TV specials on NBC.   She is missed but give a listen to one of her signature songs here as we were performing for almost 10,000 people that warm summer night outside.

That’s It :
