My regards to good old Nat. I've tried in every occasion to bring up his name in Iran,and if you're gonna interview him, tell him that Farsi translation of his "Jazz: New Perspectives on the History of Jazz" is going to published in early autumn. Once I had a chance to have a small talk with him, on the phone. He was surprised when I said to him that are real appreciators of his works in Iran. He was very modest and generous, when I mentioned the unauthorized translation of the book and the possible effect of this job on younger generations of Iranians who have an affection for this music.
