In 1959 from April 20th to 26th, Billie was her last presentation in the Boston Storyville Club.

Roy Haynes was in charge of the drum in her last performance.

Today I want to post his comments impressive.

He said:”We were playing there for a week. She was cool. I remember the club was crowded every night. A lot of my friends came in.

My wife was there for the whole weekend. She wanted to tape it, but I said, “No, Billie isn’t going to allow that.” Looking back, Billie probably wouldn’t have been aware of it. All in all, it was a beautiful week.”

From the next day I want to post a summary of his interview.
