Sisters Sing August 21, 2018 Jazz Journey

I had a late start this morning so if you listen to the archive, give it a few minutes before it kicks in.  Today is all female vocalists (one sings with her piano to start) and a block of Aretha Franklin with songs ranging from 1962 to 1969 and her 1980 hit “Think”.  Many songs you may not have heard but you get to hear her keyboard finesse and vocal range.
