Souls of Jazz - Diva of the Day - Helen (10/11/12)

My show was about the Souls of Jazz - those dearly departed souls who left us exquisite jazz renderings in which they live on. I especially selected songs in which they express the joys of life - breathing, dancing, loving, laughing.

This week's Sophie's Parlor sofas were filled with wraiths enjoying the sounds as they wafted through the airwaves, and especially enjoying the reactions from the listening audience. Believe it or not, they were all there!
