    Shrimrit Shoshan

    Her friends called her "Shimmy."  Shimrit Shoshan had many of them -- including me -- admirers, fans, and peers who appreciated her talents often at places like Smalls, The Fat Cat, and The Bar Next Door in Greenwich Village.  She was a journeywoman, first as a curious and seeking pianist and composer, but also as musician from Tel Aviv, Israel, dedicated to becoming a great artist in New York City.  Everyone respected her and believed she would become a name in jazz.  It was only a matter of time.  But for this 29 year old, time wasn't in her favor.  The WBGO Journal mourns the loss of this remarkable pianist and person.
