  • I want to wish a very Happy Father's Day to all of the brave fathers out there...past, present, & future. We're here because our fathers (& mothers) were here, & I'm honored to have come from such a strong/courageous family, & especially proud to have come from this man right here ^...Quincy D. Jones I. Despite the way he was treated on the job, he never let it get in the way of taking care of my little brother Lloyd & I. He did whatever he had to do to keep us out of trouble, & it was because of his decision to move us from the Southside of Chicago to Bremerton, Washington that later led to my discovery of music. Not a single day passes that I don't think about him, but I know he is lookin’ down from above. Whether today is one of happiness or grief...I’m sending U all my big-time ❤️ & props!!

There is a sacredness in tears. They are not the mark of weakness, but of power. They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues. They are the messengers of overwhelming grief, of deep contrition, and of unspeakable love~ Washington Irving 
My precious Mommy🦋 Our love existed before we did. We were a constant prayer in each other’s hearts that manifested on this material plane. Our bond knows no beginning and no end. Our souls... intertwined in an eternal dance of destiny, for I know we will meet up again and again. Although my being aches deeply for your physical presence, I pray you are enveloped in that infinite space of knowing and love. May God and every heavenly host meet you where heaven and earth touch and gently guide you on your soul journey. May you be reunited with the source we all begin from and end with. God. You are my north star, the light of my life and I will FOREVER savor the privilege and good fortune of being your daughter. I will never not miss you. I will slowly learn to live without the piece of me that left with you on May 11th. 
Endless love, 
Kidada. 🙏🏾 sending big big hearts and love to anyone who is grieving the loss of a loved one ❤️ #peggylipton #truelove #mommy

  • Back in 1953, when I was just a kid, I had the great honor of becoming a touring musician in the Lionel Hampton Band. It was the most glorious time for me because not only was I playing with one of my idols… being on the road was like getting to attend a traveling music university. After playing from city to city, we finally made our way over to the Palais d’Orsay station via train from Switzerland. I was so anxious because Paris was one of the places I couldn’t wait to see…A jazz musician’s DREAM! We got there around 8 o’clock, & maaan, I remember the moment that this photo of me, Buster, & Clifford captured as clear as day. My eyes were about to pop out of my sockets because what this picture unfortunately can’t show was the incredible view of a beautiful crimson sky with a silhouette of the Eiffel Tower in the background. I’m tellin’ you it was one of the most beautiful things I had ever seen!!…& the city didn’t disappoint either. It welcomed us with open arms, which was in contrast to how we were treated back home in the U.S. at the time. Paris has been like a second home to me since then, & I am incredibly excited to return there again on June 27th for my very own show with a live symphony orchestra at the @accorhotels_arena. It’s truly a full circle moment for me, so I can’t wait to see y’awl there! Click on that link in my bio for tix!! \(^o^)/.

  • As I said last night, it was an absolute honor to be involved in the musical component of @thebroadmuseum‘s “Soul of a Nation: Art in the Age of Black Power” exhibition. I know I sound like a broken record, but you've got to know where you come from, in order to get where you want to go. Without that knowledge, we are in danger of repeating history (& y’awl know I don't mean the good parts). We’re living in a pivotal time, & Soul of a Nation is a reminder that it is time to either fight or unite, & I’m telling you…the ONLY answer is to unite! We had a beautiful time celebrating the excellence of the art through live music, & I want to thank these specially talented cats for joining me & makin’ it happen: @terracemartin & band, @arinraycamp, @lovealexisley, @erynallenkane, @coryhenry, & @taronlockett…& a special thank-q to my sis from anotha mis…Ms. @badassboz for hosting the night.  Big-time love & props to U all.

  • It's an absolute honor to be involved in the musical component of @thebroadmuseum’s “Soul of a Nation: Art in the Age of Black Power” exhibit “which shines a light on a broad spectrum of art created by African Americans from 1963-1983, one of the most politically, socially, & aesthetically revolutionary periods in American history.” You've got to know where you come from, in order to get where you want to go, & without that knowledge, we are in danger of repeating history...& I don't mean the good parts. I’m lookin’ forward to our show this Saturday with these talented young cats ➡️ @terracemartin, @arinraycamp, @erynallenkane, @lovealexisley, @coryhenry, @taronlockett, @badassboz—& I hope to see y’awl there!

  • I went to Paris for 2 weeks back in 1957...& stayed for 5 years!!...I can’t even begin to express what a dream it was, especially as a 24-year-old kid, to work with some of my idols & study under the great Nadia Boulanger. My experiences in Paris helped to shape who I am today, so it makes my soul smile to be able to return there on June 27th with my full symphony orchestra show, conducted by my brother @julesbuckleymusic!! Hope to see y’awl there! Click on that link in my bio to grab ur spot...
