Friends Celebrate Coleen Salley

Lovely description of Coleen Salley’s funeral by Deborah Wiles here.  Having just experienced my own father’s memorial service at Columbia University this past Thursday, I was especially touched by the music as we ended my dad’s service with a Duke Ellington piece because of his love for big band jazz. (Thanks to Kathy Shepler for the link.)
