It’s been a while since I last posted anything here, so I thought this would be a good time to bring you up to date on what’s going on.
The good news is, I have renewed my ownership of the domain, jazzforasaturdaynight.com, so the web site will remain in existence for at least another year.
The less-than-good news is, I still cannot seem to muster much enthusiasm for the idea of writing any more jazz CD reviews. I am going to be doing some work on the site, however. Several of the older reviews are one or two huge blocks of nearly unbroken text because of formatting errors that crept in during the transfer from Blogspot to WordPress.
Somehow, I never got around to re-formatting those posts. To correct that oversight, as time allows, I intend to go through those old reviews and reformat them so they are readable. That is more than likely going to be a long, slow process.
As most jazz lovers know, the month of April is Jazz Appreciation Month. JAM was created in 2001 by the National Museum of American History, part of the Smithsonian Institution.
You can read all about the various events going on to celebrate JAM for 2018 on the Smithsonian’s JAM web site. Just click the JAM logo above.
As usual (except for last year), I like to use JAM as an excuse to point readers to a fairly lengthy article I wrote for JAM in 2013 called “My Evolution From Accidental Jazz Admirer to Intentional Jazz Lover.”
I still have not made up my mind about the long-term future of Jazz For A Saturday Night. Once I do, I will let you know.
In the meantime, you are welcome to follow me via social media, if you like. You can find me on Twitter and Facebook.
Thanks for reading this.
