This TRO Tuesday, we shine the spotlight on gospel and folk singer, Bessie Jones; one of the most important traditional singers of the mid-20th century,

Growing up in the Gullah-Geechee traditions of rural Georgia, Bessie Jones absorbed music through her family. In adulthood, she doted on the children in her community by teaching them the stories, games, and spiritual music she’d inherited—history that was theirs, too.

Determined to share with future generations and communicate her lessons to further reaches, in 1961 she travelled 1,000 miles to ethnomusicologist Alan Lomax’s New York apartment and told him to document her music and life history.

Take a listen to some of Bessie Jones’ most memorable songs.

Best known musically for his long-time collaboration with French singer, Charles Aznavour, Herbert Kretzmer collaborated on about 30 songs with Mr. Aznavour; writing the English lyrics to songs such as the international hits SHE and YESTERDAY, WHEN I WAS YOUNG.

Along with David Lee, Mr. Kretzmer composed the 1960 song GOODNESS GRACIOUS ME, which was released as a single by Peter Sellers and Sophia Loren to promote the romantic comedy film 'The Millionairess' and became a UK chart hit. The song proved so popular in the United Kingdom that a follow-up song, BANGERS AND MASH, was released the following year.

Mr. Kretzmer died on October 14, 2020 at his home in London. He will be missed.

For over half a century, Dr. Bernice Johnson Reagon has been a major cultural voice for freedom and justice; singing, teaching and speaking out against racism and organized inequities of all kinds. Born in Southwest Georgia, her singing style and traditional repertoire is grounded in her experiences in church, school, social and political activism. Dr. Reagon's life and work supports the concept of community based culture with an enlarged capacity for respect; for self, those who move amongst us, and respect and care for our homes and the environment.

In 1973 while a graduate student of history at Howard University and vocal director of the DC Black Repertory Theater, she formed the internationally renowned African American women’s a cappela ensemble, Sweet Honey In The Rock. She led the group until retirement in 2004.

Her strongest musical collaborator is her daughter, Toshi Reagon. Together, they collaborate to continue one of our richest legacies of song.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Dr. Bernice Johnson Reagon! We honor and celebrate you today and always.
