  1. I saw Lena Horne when I was about 12 at the Music Circus in Sacramento, CA. I remember it like it was yesterday. What a performer! She opened with the original lyrics to The Lady is a Tramp, which are kinda racy, & I was mesmerized. I’d seen that very performance on Sesame Street, Jeffrey. That’s one of the performances I point to that caused my love of jazz.
