Composer Jamie K. Sims wrote the lovely, uplifting melody for this solo piano piece in the mid-’90s for a documentary short, “Marii Hasegawa: Gentle Woman of a Dangerous Kind.” It tells the story of Hasegawa, a global peace activist who became the president of the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom during the Vietnam War era. “She was very soft-spoken and humble but very strong in her belief and her actions,” Sims says. It took years for the film, by local director Janet Scagnelli, to be finished. Sims has a fascinating musical history dating back to her club days in New York, when she was frontwoman for underground rockers the Cosmopolitans. jamieksims.com.” - Brent Baldwin
