8/16	 #TodayInJazz: 	Pianist Bill Evans was born on this day in 1929 Plainfield, NJ.  He mostly worked in a trio setting. Evans' use of impressionist harmony, inventive interpretation of traditional jazz repertoire, block chords, and trademark rhythmically independent, "singing" melodic lines continue to influence jazz pianists today.	#riverviewjazzjc #jazz #jazzmusic #thisdayinjazz #jazzhistory #jazzpiano #pianist #billevans

What happened at Charlottesvile over the past few days truly breaks my heart. Please stop the hate, the world has had enough.

Here's 'Perfect' by Ed Sheeran, because we are all beautifully imperfect, and perfectly beautiful. And for that, we deserve love, not hate.

The other half of Bob Hope's signature tune "Thanks for the Memory" was a lovely singer-pianist who put family first. Shirley Ross (1913-1975) was already a movie veteran when she was teamed with Hope for the musical highlight of "The Big Broadcast of 1938." Nebraskan born but growing up in Hollywood, a talented pianist she was playing on radio by her teens, then became a band singer in nightspots in LA. Signed by MGM, Ross featured in a string of small roles often singing a song as in "Manhattan Melodrama" with an early version of what later became the standard "Blue Moon" or in "San Francisco." Loaned to Paramount for her first lead in "The Big Broadcast of 1937" they kept her. Opposite Crosby in the smash "Waikiki Wedding" they introduced together the standard "Blue Hawaii." Back for "The Big Broadcast of 1938" and teamed this time with Hope they introduced "Thanks for the Memory" and Oscar winning Best Song. Reunited for "Thanks for the Memory" with Hope they introduced another standard "Two Sleepy People." While Paramount were already building Hope with the more popular Raye and fortuitously with Crosby and Lamour, for Ross apart from the minor "Some Like It Hot", as the second lead with Crosby in "Paris Honeymoon" and MacMurray in "Cafe Society" they had lost interest. Broadway and another  hit "It Never Entered My Mind" from "Higher and Higher" and with her movie career stalled, modest success on stage, the serious illness of her first husband changed her priorities. She said years later "When I look at my two sons and see how handsome they've grown, I don't regret for a minute quitting show business to devote myself to them." Occasionally performing in Europe and for the troops with Hope a lifelong friend, even an offer from Loessor to star in the road company of "Guys and Dolls" did not bring her back. She said, "It's tough enough being an adult, but growing up is a stinkin' job, and kids need all the help they can get. I've never been sorry I made the decision. One of these days, I'll make a real good grandmother." Introducing some of the greatest songs of the American Songbook, Ross was not a big star but she processed big talent.
