“FIVE LETTERS THAT FEEL LIKE FOUR”

Reading the blog AESTHETIC< NOT ANESTHETIC often makes me laugh — and I always admire what Prof. M. Figg has to say.  Here he takes on the leaden coinage “Dixieland” and makes it lie quiet for good.  It’s well worth reading.

P.S.  Condon would have hated to have his music called “Dixieland,” and the CD reissue is of course posthumous — labeled by people who should have known better.

May your happiness increase.
