Art's daughter: “I am overwhelmed by the history of our country that I have seen and experienced today. I spent the day walking around Birmingham, Alabama. Went to the 16th street baptist church, the Alabama Jazz Hall of Fame where I met Frank Adams who played with Duke Ellington, Ella Fitzgerald, and Sun Ra, and met Melba Moore at a cast party for a new play called 4 little golden girls about the Birmingham bombings. At the event folks clapped and cheered for my father, Arthur Lisi, for his musical contribution to the play. So proud to be his daughter and so grateful for the life I have.”
