"Jazz for Relaxation"? How are we supposed to relax with all these naked ladies lying around?!!

But seriously!! I look forward to learning more about your new book. I like the "non-jazz event" angle already.


Yep, those covers, respectively the pictured ladies are indeed beautiful, and therefore far from being just, err, odd.

I'm looking forward to some significant excerpts from your book. I'm very curious.

Since all music is connected with its sociopolitical environment, it will be interesting to learn which - from your point of view - non-jazz events made the music change.

Looking forward to the book Marc; I'm hoping that autographed first edition copies will be made available to loyal JazzWax readers...?

I just KNOW you'll be doing some signings here in NY - I'll be on line.

I enjoy your looking-at-the-big-picture views when they occasionally appear here. While I don't always see it just the way you do, I always find your positions to be well thought out, defensible, and thought provoking.

Maybe I'll buy two copies.
