Vale Jeni Le Gon

Sad news just to hand is the death at age 96 of great tapper and performer from the 1930s:

 Dr Jeni Le Gon

Se the Washington Times obituary 

Jeni was probably the last  person of her era to be declared a Florence Mills successor
She performed "I'm a Little Blackbird" at a Hollywood commemoration for Florence in 1939
She was best known for her role alongside Bill "Bojangles" Robinson in the movie:
 "Hooray for Love", featured in the number "Living in a Great Big Way"
