Dear Marc,

You run by far the best website in the jazz community. Congratulations.
I still have a wish: direct your excellent interview technique also to the younger generation of jazzmusicians. They need it.
Pick your favorite musicians from all age groups. And go on for many years!!

Congratulations, Marc! This is one of my favorite sites on the web and one of my first places to visit each morning.

Keep up the great work!

Hans Doerrscheidt

Congrats, Marc! Your blog ranks at the top of my daily bookmarks.


Denis Ouellet

Thank you Marc for this great blog.
It is always with great anticipation
that I read it daily.

Doug Zielke

Marc, although I do look at some other jazz websites ocasionally, yours is the only one I read every single day. Congratulations on the anniversary!

Congrats Marc! Jazzwax is as important a start to beginning my daily schedule as is my coffee. Regarding jazz sites, I still find myself more refreshed and inspired by your work (and Doug's) than all the others out there. That's why the impressive stats don't really surprise me, though I applaud them: jazz people are discerning web users as well, and they know excellence!

Michael Steinman

In the words of Bing Crosby, "Yeah, man!" Congratulations to one of the indefatigable and smart folks --


Only two years?
If you look at the archives it looks so much more!
Good job and thanks!

Uwe Zänisch

Great and happy day ! I wasn't aware of it. Thanks for all the education and spirit for the good music. Keep alive your investigation for unknown facts and help younger cats to find the track ! Cheers

Jazzy Wax-way to us;
With no muss and no fuss
Blogging practically daily:
Myers' "mark" we can trust!

(Wouldn't post such doggerel ordinarily, but I'm out of town and forced by ornery computer to send comment rather than private email. So please accept apologies and congratulations!)

(Also, rembetika is up now.)

Anders Ählström

Thanks to an e-mail a few weeks ago from Bob Brookmeyer/Artistshare recommending your interview with BB, I got acquainted with your blog. Talking statistics, JazzWax has become my #1 morning reading, putting New York Times at the second place. Your style, the subjects you select, your intelligent, still simple, way of interviewing, and, not least, the clever editing of the features mixing pictures with text - all in all great journalism.
Keep up the good work, Marc! I'm looking forward to Monday...
Best regards/Anders Ählström, Gothenburg, Sweden

Don Tyler

Thank you Marc...your blog is a must read for any serious jazz fan. I've read all of your entries. I enjoy the quality of your writing, interviews, and taste in music. Keep it coming!

David Brent Johnson

Marc, I'm late to the party, but congratulations--I've loved & followed the blog since its launch, and it's hard to imagine the jazz blogosphere without it now. Your work here has been a marvelous contribution to the ongoing annals of jazz history. Here's to many more years!

Paula Hayward

Hey Marc, great website.....would love to see your opinion about the New York Jazz-singer KEN ARD, he made a great CD, "Ballads Blues & Cocktails" and is played at radio station WBGO a lot!
