Video Tribute to "Cousin" Mary Alexander

The John W. Coltrane Cultural Society has enlisted me to videotape birthday greetings and well wishes to “Cousin” Mary Alexander, cousin to legendary saxophonist John Coltrane. We are looking for musicians, family, friends, club owners, jazz advocates, serious fans, and others from the Philadelphia and New York area who know what Cousin Mary means to the jazz community and the impact she has had on the lives of many. The video will be shown on her birthday, July 23, 2006, at a Tribute and birthday celebration being planned in Philadelphia.

We are also attempting to reach out to musicians who played with or knew John, and those who played at or attended the Backyard Concerts on 33rd St. Obviously, this is a very limited opportunity to participate in a historic happening, so your response must reflect that urgency. If you’re interested or know someone who should be contacted, PLEASE CONTACT ME ASAP!

I am available at
phillyjazzblog@verizon.net .

For information on the Tribute
or call 609-504-0423


PLEASE POST YOUR WELL WISHES TO MARY!
