Patty Andrews of the Andrews Sisters Dies

I loved listening to the music of the Andrews Sisters when I was relatively young, and their style and spirit is what probably gave my my interest in swing music in adulthood, so her death puts the final capstone on the story of these legendary sisters and their musical contributions.

Rest In Peace, Patty Andrews. And say hello to that Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy in the dancehall of the heavens.
