Hi All.......
 
John Rogers falls victim to the current trend of "suits" investing in  "the 
arts"...venture
capitalists, seem to feel an infusion of investment dollars into the  sexy 
entertainment industry will keep their investors at bay. Relationships,  
loyalty, smarts, ears...are oflittle consequence.....its all about the bottom  line, 
spread sheets and profit margins.
 
Creative expression has a tough time blossoming in an atmosphere devoid  of 
inspiration and passion. Luckily, the growth of artists labels, internet  music 
marketing and retailers and the myriad of programs aimed at attracting  fans 
to Jazz will continue to make inroads.
 
The pendulum continues to "Swing" .......
 
Staying tuned,
reebs
