I read the news today, oh boy--the other writers had just won awards... Do what you love: keep turning us on to Jazz.

Jason Crane

Congrats on the two nominations, Marc. As I always say -- and it's true! -- JazzWax is a daily must-read for me. Even if this blog does deplete my wallet by forcing me to purchase all the great music you write about. Most recent purchase: the Roland Hanna record you mentioned in this past Sunday's Bits. Looking forward to having you as a guest on The Jazz Session, too! (See what I did there?)

My congrats as well, if it were up to me, you would have won going away with Blog Jazzer of the year, or whatever you prefer to call it. Keep up the fine work, Marc, and I completely agree with the earlier poster that you may end up bankrupting a lot of us...but we can hope that the market for jazz will get better in return, right?
