What a treat! Last night I was able to work and enjoy a tribute to Mavis Staples at the SF JAZZ Center for their fundraising gala. I prompted for Bonnie Raitt and a few board members. The night was mixed between praise and performances by their High School All-Stars, Charlie Musselwhite, Lizz Wright, their all-star SF JAZZ Collective, Roseanne Cash/ John Leventhal, Bonnie Raitt, and Mavis Staples, who sang two songs.
Her voice and her presence is unmistakeable.
I love my job!!! Many thanks to SF JAZZ for bringing me aboard.
