DJ Polished Solid – ABBEY LINCOLN was here (No Turn Unstoned #118) 2010-08-22 by on

Friend to GFM DJ Polished Solid has put together a fantastic mix to mark the anniversary of the born day of the one and only Abbey Lincoln!

‘When everything is finished in a world, the people go to look for what the artists leave. It’s the only thing that we have really in this world — is an ability to express ourselves and say, “I was here.” ‘ —Abbey Lincoln

Rest in peace, Abbey! Your artistry touched me very deeply during your journey here.
