Judy is the best. Of course she always was. I used to chase her around town in the 70's. Unfortunately I never caught her!!

A grand farewell tribute to an inspirational jazz duo. Judy Roberts and Greg Fishman have few peers among Chicago jazz performers. Their departure creates a deep wound in the city's jazz legacy!

As an individual who has been entertained by Judy Roberts over three decades,I'm sure sorry to see her leave Chicagoland.I last saw Judy and her husband perform at our local library in Des plaines last year,was unable to express my thanks to her that day due to her many other fans in attendance.My loss for not catching her at Chambers in Niles,always something to do,now I sure regret my misplaced priorities.I usually visit Arizona in late spring,will be sure to see her there.Bon Voyage,Judy and Greg.Joe Botte
