You have to start these sort of posts with a disclaimer:

"While I'm not stopping JazzWax, I wanted to take a moment for some year-end thanks."

I couldn't get through the day without a JazzWax post. I didn't know that this morning.

Rab Hines

Well Marc, you can wrap up another year knowing that Jazzwax is everything you could have hoped for. And to many people like me, an indispensable - and illuminating - part of their internet day.

Thanks again for all your time, effort and enthusiasm.

Thank you for telling the story. Besides the obvious excitement and beauty of the music, I became a jazz fan as a youngster because of the stories. First that I read, then later that I got first and second hand from the artists. Your blog is a wonderful continental breakfast each morning but also a reminder of what a wonderful time we've lived in.
Gentils regards,


I have to agree with the first comment. I, too, was worried you were leaving your blog (after thanking everyone)! I read your wonderful jazz stories everyday during my lunch hour. Keep on keppin' on.....


Sorry...Keep on keepin' on! (or 'Keep on Truckin')

I've sent numerous e-mails Marc's way. You know what I like most? That he always responds. Even if it's just an acknowledgement, at least you know he's listening and, more often that not, an actual conversation ensues.

I also appreciate the fact that Marc talks about much more than just jazz. A more accurate name for his blog would probably be AllKindsOfMusicWax, but I suppose that's a little cumbersome.

JazzWax is, indeed, an indispensable part of my day. All I can say is, keep up the good work.

MM....A happy & healthy to you!
Thanks for the stories, info and mentions.
