Danny Hull Newsletter: Musically This Week Vol XIV, No 20

Dr. Dick Judelsohn
Greetings everyone.  It seems fitting.  We're featuring one of Dick Judelsohn's favorite local artists this week.  Dr. Jazz would have approved.  He loved Laurie.  He invited her on his program once for an extended interview.  And no illness could stop him from introducing her to a Sunday audience at the Art Gallery two summers ago.  We have lost yet another irreplaceable friend, and too soon.  Dr. Dick Judelsohn's contributions to the jazz community and the musical art form he revered were equaled only by his contribution to pediatrics.  Thank you Dick, for 35 years of inspired jazz broadcasting and for all that you shared on Bebop and Beyond.  Thank you for your 13 years of support for our Tuesday night effort.  Thank you for the summer parties in your courtyard.  Thank you for your dignity, your warmth, your cheer, and your genuine and humble persona.  You will be missed.  But you cannot be replaced.  Rest in Peace.

And if there is anyone who can pay tribute to our friend Dick with an inspired performance, it is Laurie.  For like Dick Judelsohn, Laurie too is genuine.  She'll offer her relentless energy and her musical esprit, and Dick will be digging it from his place in eternity.  And another bonus is the long awaited return of Michael T. Jones.  Our friend Mike has been taking some coursework that was meeting on Tuesday nights last semester, so we haven't had the pleasure since last August.  But Laurie's trio is now reunited, and we offer it all to the memory of our friend.  Our tradition continues, now at the Iris Restaurant in the Maple-Ridge Plaza, at the intersection of Maple & Sweet Home Roads in Amherst.  Good music, good food, good people, chilled spirits, and a great hang.
