Anne Pope: Frank Jump and I have been friends – and sometimes collaborators – since 1988. When I first thought about doing a StoryCorps session, he was the first person I wanted to interview.

Everybody’s story matters. Every life counts. Help us reach out to record our history, hopes, and common humanity—and illuminate the true character of this nation. StoryCorps.net

The Right To Love – Happy Birthday Lalo Schifrin – 76 Years Old Today

The Right To Love – Lyrics Gene Lees – Music Lalo Schifrin

My love and I ask little of the world
The right to sigh together in the rain
And walk with heads up in the sun
And share our joy and our pain

And yet they say that we are wrong
That we haven’t the right to our love
That this love is shameful to see
And yet we treasure our love

And so we go our solitary ways
Indifferent to the cold unfriendly stares
Indifferent to the whispered talk
We don’t care at all

We have all we need
As long as we can be together
We know we’ve earned the precious right to love

And so we go our solitary ways
Indifferent to the cold unfriendly stares
Indifferent to the whispered talk
We don’t care at all

We have all we need
As long as we can be together
We find our consolation in each others eyes
The sweet look of wonder
We know we’ve earned the precious right to love

Lush Life - Nancy Wilson

I first heard this tune in the 80s when dating a lovely man named Sammy Velazquez. The lyrics by Gene Lees (and music by Lalo Schifrin) so tenderly express the sentiments of what was then attributed to interracial love, yet can be universally interpreted. Click here to hear a great rendition by Freddy Cole with Grover Washington Jr on soprano sax.
