Bob Shingleton, aka Pliable, writes the influential classical music blog On an Overgrown Path. Bob is based in England and has a keen interest in composers and musicians who have been unfairly neglected. He writes:

“Bill, I have published an article today about Everett Lee -

As I point out in the post, it is a work in progress and I invite readers to fill in the blanks, particularly in the later stages of his career. I hope that this way we can arrive at a biography that does this fine African American musician justice.

Regards from England,
Bob Shingleton
