quailjazz, 9/12/2012 - 8:31pm "Ray , old friend and you of excellent intellect, culture analysis and extraordinary writing skills, thank you so very much for stepping up to the forefront on this so important issue. I was a member of the Jazz Hall of Fame Board for about 7 years beginning in the mid 90's. I have always been involved in local jazz events including the Tulsa Jazz Society. Tulsa Annual Jazz keyboard concert beginning in 1992 was my brainchild which I/we nourished up until 20011/12. I feel like I have been a willing/dotting parent to this creative event. Now comes this frightful possibility that we may not be able to continue our forward creative march toward success in our mission to promote AMERICA'S ONLY TRULY ORIGINAL ART FORM.
The contribution of CHUCK CISSEL to this effort cannot be omitted, nor diminished from the history of this creative adventure. Chuck brought to the table his years of experience in the fields of Broadway Shows, pop and standard recordings and associations with icons of the music, jazz genres. He has been an integral part of the equation which has produced the Hall in it's finest hour. I hope and pray that the Gods and Goddesses of Jazz,and Blues will answer our prayers and pleadings to preserve this bastion of culture and creativity for many years to come. AMEN AND GODSPEED. H. GAYLE WILLIAMSON
