*Roana, a good friend and great Jazz singer in her own right, just reminded me that The Charlie Parker festival and Nightmare fall on the same day! How wonderful!! please spread the word about the play. I'm pretty sure it will be in Manhattan, but I will post exact location and cost soon. I think it's just $5.  I 've seen it twice, and could sit through many more shows . Each time impacted my differently and more deeply. The actors where wonderful!!! Thanks for writing this piece Charles and for allowing me to take part!
