In Memoriam: Abbey Lincoln


A few years ago, I rented several Sidney Poitier movies and discovered the sweetest movie For the Love of Ivy. I was not familiar with the young actress in the film and had no idea that she was an accomplished jazz singer, songwriter and civil-rights advocate, but after a bit of research I was fascinated by ABBEY LINCOLN’s life story. Beautiful, talented and uncompromising, Ms. Lincoln was a force of nature and I was saddened to learn of her passing, but I’m certain her legacy will live on in the voices of jazz singers around the world.
