Announcing the death of Jane La Scala

Dear Followers of Jazz Ramble,
We are very sad to announce the death of our mother, the wonderful Jane La Scala, who created Jazz Ramble in 2011 and enjoyed sharing her love of jazz with the world.
We know Jazz Ramble gave her a great deal of joy and allowed her to connect with many wonderful musicians and lovers of jazz in all corners of the globe.
Thank you for making her life richer and we have no doubt she made life more interesting for all of you.
with sadness, but joy as well,
her daughters Mary & Barbara

    I am so saddened to hear of Janes death,
    We had an excellent relationship through the V.J.C. with setting up the Club Jazz Calenders and other projects, often with an amount of jocularity, she was terrific to work with. Jane, you will be missed, R.I.P. my friend.

  14. Dear Mary and Barbara,
    I knew Jane had been ill, but it is always a shock when friends leave us.
    Unfortunately, I never got to meet her, although we corresponded and exchanged jazz information via email quite regularly.
    From this I had the feeling that Jane was a very charming, friendly and helpful person.
    She was certainly talented and I admired her wonderfully researched and informative website.
    She will certainly be missed.
    With sincere condolences.
