Dear Ann and Amy
This is such an inspiring and uplifting story. I admire both artists and their contributions to this country. I saw Ann perform in Western Nebr. and Central Ill. She is a really an incredible talent and great lady. I remember speaking with her at both concerts--It was a great conversation. Thanks for all your great musical and social work over the years and Best wishes to you, Amy, and all your friends and family for 2017!
Lyndsey Smith & Soul Distribution's strength is defined in their live performances. They have yet to disappoint me with what they bring to the live stage. The energy that they draw from is akin to what the R&B and Soul artist ,of the 60s and 70s, would serve to their audiences through their live shows. The tight driving melody from the band supporting harmonic soulful vocals is, in my case, just what the Soul Doctor prescribed. Pittsburgh R&B
Pittsburgh with its Huge Student Population has to become more active and more vocal. I would like to see more public venues allowing gatherings and open discussion of news events both nationally and locally within the city. Point State Park and Mellon Park should be a haven of activism and music. Academics should always be your first priority but change will never come without activism. Be Vocal and Be Proud '
Attention: Mike Shanley
I am writing a book about George Cory and Douglass Cross, who wrote "I Left My Heart in San Francisco."
You quoted Richie Cole as saying: I blow the saxophone as a vocalist. I tell a story. I Left My Heart in San Francisco does not have a trumpet solo, a piano solo and a bass solo. It would ruin the whole thing. Its a message, a short story. You want a novel, you listen to John Coltrane!
This is an apt quote that I want to use. Did Cole say anything else about the song? How can I reach Cole to ask him to elaborate?
Thanks for your help.
