Hello friends, a quick post to let you know about a great newish blog from a friend of mine that I think is definitely worth checking out and following. It’s called Lady Be Bop, and written by Elaine Hayes, who is a Seattle writer, historian, editor, proud dog owner, and all around good person. Elaine is currently working on a book about Sarah Vaughan, and her blog focuses on, among other things, women in jazz and popular music and culture. So check it out, read it, and enjoy. It’s good stuff.
