    In the tradition of jazz legends like Clifford Brown and Robert “Boysie” Lowery, Fostina Dixon Kilgoe feels every note she plays.  And she shared that feeling with the world – from Showtime at the Apollo, to a tour with Marvin Gaye – and then back home to Delaware, where she founded the Wilmington Youth Jazz Band.
