Kim Tolliver - I'll Try To Do Better (Rojac 129)

I'll Try To Do Better

"It was a cold day in December,
and I was trying to find myself a little restitution.

All of a sudden, I found out it was a New Year,
so I made myself a New Year's resolution.

I've got to change my way of living,
instead of taking, I've got to start giving."

Kim Tolliver, who gave us all so much, lost her long battle with Alzheimer's disease this past summer.

I couldn't think of a more fitting song to pay tribute to those who have gone on before us here in 2007. This Harlem Soul masterpiece is just about as good as it gets.

Say Amen, somebody!

Please join me in a moment of reflection as we honor these great men and women who have left this world a better place:

May they rest in peace.

I'll talk to you next year.
