Holli Ross Fund for Jazz Studies

A message from Holli's Family

May 19, 2020

Friends, Family, and Believers - 


The family is so touched by your love and support and your gifts to sustain Holli’s passion to:

  • promote professionalism in jazz studies

  • inspire the next generation of jazz artists

  • give with purpose

As you know, Holli’s capacity to give never bottomed out – and never will. Your gifts indicate that you know what Holli knew - the answer to What’s it all about.


To follow is a song our mother would ask her in her early years as a vocalist. 

Alfie - 


"What's it all about Alfie

Is it just for the moment we live

What's it all about

When you sort it out, Alfie

Are we meant to take more than we give

Or are we meant to be kind?

And if, if only fools are kind, Alfie

Then I guess it is wise to be cruel

And if life belongs only to the strong, Alfie

What will you lend on an old golden rule?

As sure as I believe there's a heaven above

Alfie, I know there's something much more

Something even non-believers can believe in

I believe in love, Alfie…"


Please continue to share with others and keep believing.


Thank you from the bottoms of our hearts, 

Holli’s Family
