For all we know... Abbey Lincoln RIP

I am truly sorry to hear of the passing of Abbey Lincoln.

One time spouse and collaborator of Max Roach,she was considered a vixen in her film studio days. As she aged her music just seemed to get better as the maturity of a life well lived was reflected in the smokey resonant timbre of her vocals.

One of the things I really wanted to do in this life was to see Abbey Lincoln perform live. That goal came within a hundred miles or so of happening five or ten years ago. But alas, God gives us free will, and sometimes we simply choose wrong.

Live life to the fullest everyday because for all we know, we may never meet again.
