The last of a dying breed. One of the greatest singers that ever graced Harlem.
Friday January 4th Legend/vocalist Irene Reid, one of the greatest vocalists that ever graced a stage, has passed.
It was the same day as most of you already know, that Earl May (Legendary bassist) also passed at 4 PM- without any warning, he went almost instantly, without suffering, survived by his wonderful wife Lee. Arrangements and funeral services will be announced soon and certainly someone with more jazz history than I, will write about the one and only Earl May, one of the kindest, generous, most precious people in the world- but in the mean time- here’s a little something about Irene.
