I’m sure that many others can relate to what I’m about to say. Very often, especially around this time of year[with many friends and family invited over to the house] I would often be admonished by my parents to be quiet because “Grown folks are talking” that was the only warning needed.

I didn’t necessarily like being told to be quiet at the time and it took me a while to get why I was being instructed to do so.

I’d like to create a similar space for music today. Shh!!! Grown Folks Are Listening to Ella Fitzgerald! If you sing (or play for that matter) and don’t know Ella’s music intimately…
