Does Your House Have Lions?

"One day in the late sixties, I was on the phone with Rahsaan and mentioned to him that just that day I bought a house.
He responded by asking, "Does your house have lions?"
I said, "What?"
He said, "Lions, you know like in front of a museum or the post office. You know, concrete lions. My house has lions. Get a house with lions."

"Dorthaan's Place"

Here's a great interview with Dorthaan on JazzTimes.com.  Lots of cool stories about Rahsaan, Dorthaan's work at WBGO, and also some exciting news about Dorthaan's latest:  starting this fall, she will have her own room at NJPAC, called "Dorthaan's Place", where she will produce a monthly jazz brunch.
