Licia Albanese, Joe Gimma
Jim knew Licia and Joe Gimma well and offered to set down these remarks about their interactions for our JBS Journal and, in August 2014, for our JB Yahoogroup. (Dan Shea)
Licia Albanese and I spent a considerable amount of time together from 1977 until 2008, when she and I did an onstage interview here in Florida, at the Vero Beach Opera Company. Additionally, and just as importantly to me, I had the privilege of getting to know Joseph A. Gimma, whom she had married in 1945.
