I'm staying up 'til 2 AM and every day I find one more detail that needs to be addressed. Just when I thought I was closing in on my final 'to do' list and getting my manuscript ready for the editors. I'm not complaining, just frustrated.
Looks like I've secured more photos of Leroy Cooper with Ray Charles from the olden days that will definitely add value and credibility to the context of Leroy's memoir. They're worth waiting for. In addition, I finally made contact with Cynthia Scott, a former Raelet, who just returned from Japan. I'll be doing an interview with her on Monday.
As if that's not enough, and it's not, I will also be interviewing renowned baritone sax player Howard Johnson who played with Charlie Mingus, Hank Crawford, Miles David, Taj Mahal and other jazz greats. Sharing their love of the baritone, he and Leroy were close so I can't leave him out.
