Congrats on the book deal Marc! I am glad you were able to do it with UC Press. I really enjoyed their 'West Coast Jazz'. Your blog readers are definitely looking forward to your book.

Rab Hines

Very pleased to hear of the book project - and you're in great company with the likes of Central Avenue Sounds.

See you at the booksigning for sure.


John P. Cooper

"These albums originally were marketed as soundtracks for fireplace makeout sessions, mixed-drink consumption, and dreaming about larger homes, cars and paychecks."

Lovely days when America was America.

But weren't they really marketed to listeners who simply like quality pop tunes well played on particular instruments by extremely qualified artists?

I miss those days.

Mike Milner

Congratulations on the book deal Marc! I look forward to the finished product. Thanks for featuring Curtis Counce. "Exploring the Future" was an outstanding recording, long unavailable. However, it is on iTunes now and I encourage your readers to give it a listen.
