NEA Jazz Masters Awards Ceremony and Concert Webcast

A collage of the faces of the four 2014 NEA Jazz Masters

The NEA Jazz Masters Awards Ceremony &Concert will be webcast at 7:30 pm EST on January 13,2014,from The Allen Room at Jazz at Lincoln Center. As we honor Jamey Aebersold,Anthony Braxton,Richard Davis and Keith Jarrett with the nation’s highest jazz award,we will hear incredible performances by past honorees and the 2014 NEA Jazz Masters themselves.

I am glad for all these great musicians,all of them deserve this award but –indirectly and a bit paradoxically –the one in the group who did more for jazz diffusion is also the less popular one among the “average”jazz lover. My sincerest wishes to James Aebersold,to whom several generations of jazz musicians owe so much.

      Thank you for the alert. The defect depends on WordPress,the blog authoring system used by saxopedia. More precisely,I believe it depends on the specific theme I chose for this blog (Atahualpa). Before I launched saxopedia I spent a LOT of time testing the many themes available,and Atahualpa was the only one that provides what I needed,including full customization of pages. Switching to another theme at this point is very unpractical (or impossible),because all existing pages would require a lot of tweaking or a complete rewrite.

      Regardless,from now on I’ll try to check new pages also on Firefox (in addition to Chrome and IE) before I publish them,and try to iron out the most obvious inconsistencies.

      Thanks again.
