Wow, what a great tribute to Lena Horne at Blues Alley Wednesday night !
James Gavin, author of Stormy Weather: The Life of Lena Horne put together a great informative program. Especially fabulous were the performances by jazz divas Paula West and Rebecca Parris, superbly accompanied by George Mesterhazy on piano and Amy Shook on bass.
