The April issue of the online Mississippi Rag has just appeared, once more testifying to the energy and devotion of its editor, Leslie Johnson, who has celebrated traditional jazz and ragtime for more than three decades now. You can read it for free every month by simply clicking on, and why wouldn’t you?

For a number of years, I’ve written CD and book reviews and profiles for the Rag, but this issue marks my first regular column covering the New York hot jazz scene — so I am especially proud to be there. I hope you’ll keep me informed on happenings in and around the five boroughs, and I know you’ll find something worth reading on every page. Onwards to May!
