INDONESIA JAZZ BY ASPEN GAINER 34THPARALLEL MAGAZINE ISSUE 22
She had brought along her saxophone that night, as she did once in a blue moon. Her singing voice was tired, she had said. These were the shows I loved the most but the patrons didn’t pay no mind to her sax tunes—she wasn’t no Coltrane, you see. But Indonesia had one special song that she would do—Nina Simone’s Since I Fell for You. That song hit home like a fist. Every time I heard it, felt like my heart was being snared and slapped like a drum.
