        Condolences to family and close friends. I remember meeting her way back, such a nice lady! I can be a cheap bastard, but she encouraged me to buy a couple of albums after the show. And you know what, I have those treasured vinyl memories to this day. RIP Sandra.

          I recently read "Song for My Fathers: A New Orleans Story in Black and White" by Tom Sancton (2006). He played clarinet as a teenager at Preservation Hall in its early days. When I put the book down I wondered who in it was still alive and later noted that Sandra was one of the few.

          Anybody want to read it? PM me a mailing address and I'll send it out; just pass it on when you're done.

            That is an interesting book.

            I read it a couple of years back and enjoyed, although I have some recollection of wondering why Tommy thought you were only the real deal if you played at Pres Hall

              I also read the book years ago. He had a unique and interesting perspective.
