Last April, I awoke to a strange email. It was from an editor at NPR. He wanted to know if I was available and interested in writing for them.
I went back to bed and woke up again. I thought I must be dreaming. The email was still there.
I got coffee and came back to the computer. The email was still there.
So I responded with an enthusiastic yes, and good things have resulted.
This is a piece I did on the importance of African American owned or run jazz labels in the late ’60s, early ’70s.
This is a obituary/appreciation of the great bassist Gary Peacock
And this is a similar piece on Jonas Gwangwa
As best I can tell, this is only the beginning.
