It’s not yet 9 PM in California (where I am writing this) but it will be midnight in New York City. So let me join in the imagined chorus and wish all the readers of JAZZ LIVES deep happiness in 2012 and the future.
When in doubt, let these words guide you through 2012 and onwards!
The custom, for some, at the end of the year, is to look back sadly at those we have lost. I’ve felt those losses, and I know you have too. But at this moment, let us celebrate the artists who continue to give us so much joy, and those new players and singers we will come to discover in the New Year. Thanks, you cats, for swinging so!
