Why were we "off the air" for eight hours Thursday?

We're back up and running and I wish I could tell you what happened, but I don't know. However, I do know we'll be getting a bill from my programmer for putting things right.

If anyone feels inclined to chip in and help with this extraordinary expense (about two weeks net revenue up in smoke), we'd appreciate it. Every little bit helps a lot.

Cannes, France, 1958


Michigan native and trumpeter Donald Byrd was one of few bebop artists who pushed soul and funk forward all without leaving his root genre of jazz. With Byrd, it's difficult to imagine how Herbie Hancock would have made his way so quickly to the top of the game.

Two years before this performance Byrd had left Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers, soon performing with such luminaries as Thelonious Monk, John Coltrane and Sonny Rollins.
