I know all of you have (or should have!) better things to do tonight than read some self-centered ramblings from me, but since you follow this blog (or have happened to stumble upon it online) you are stuck with me for a few minutes. 😉
For the last few weeks I have been giving a lot of thought to the future of this blog. Walking away from it and letting it die a slow death of attrition has no appeal for me. I like even less the idea of just pulling the plug and watching several years of my labor instantly vanish into history.
Given that, it seems I have only one real, viable choice, and that is to begin writing jazz CD reviews again.
I have found it quite ironic and even amusing that, in the comparatively short time this blog has been on hiatus, I have received not one, not two, but FOUR new (or recent) releases.
Also, although I have not seen the email yet (hint, hint!), another artist has promised to send me a link I can use to download a promo copy of his latest.
Then there are roughly 1400 CD’s in my collection that I have not written about here yet.
Circle January 7 on your calendar! On that day, or rather evening, I will publish the review I have been sort of working on (and sort of not working on) for longer than I care to think. The subject is a classic jazz album released many, many years ago by on of jazz’s greatest legends, a man we are lucky enough to still have with us.
Once that is “in the can” as they say in TV and movies, I will tackle those new releases.
In the meantime, I wish you all a happy, safe, music-filled New Year! 🙂
Thanks for reading this.

Thanks so very much for your kind words, Beverly!
