Marc and Howard....
Thanks for this fine set of interviews. I enjoyed every installment!

As a Left Coaster for almost 50 years now, I've always kinda wondered at, and resented some, the Least Coast critics' tendency to sneer at the bustling, happy, integrated (both senses), bob-and-weave music played by Mulligan, Rogers, Niehaus, Pepper, Shank, Rosolino, Manne, and all the others who came, arranged, and conquered so many out here. Thank you, Howard Rumsey, for your goodly share in making it happen. The body of Jazz is all the better for it.

I'd like to know more about the period between 1971 and 1986 when the music changed so much.

Good 3 parter this was.
