Abbey Lincoln (August 6, 1930 – August 14, 2010)

"Bird alone, flying high
flying through a clouded sky
sending mournful soulful sounds
soaring over troubled grounds..."

In Abbey's Words:

”How can you have a career and never say anything? To experience it all and not say a word, you're supposed to stand up and speak your mind in the music. Some people like to hear some reality. I'm not trying to save or fix the world. I'm just singing about my experiences. My songs are observations.”
