At least the "70 year old rockers" actually played live (as opposed to lip-syncing), which is more than we can say for some of the acts in recent years.

It was alright to have seen Detroit's Stevie and Denver's own India.Arie on
stage in a much too short set before Sunday's main event.
It was nice to see N'Awlins represented with Aaron and Mac, however once
Lady 'Ree began to sing, their presence was insignificant. Who was the brain
behind that coupling? It should've been a case of seperate but equal, not
intergrated.

I was dreaming of a Detroit All-Star Jazz Band with a group of past and
present schools of Detroit jazzers jamming at half-time, instead we got a
group of 70 year old rockers acting like teenagers in one of the worse
performances, both musicaly and sound wise, in the 40 years of super
sundays. My dream turned into a nightmare.

Baseball is the national pastime, football is the national passion and we
all know that jazz is the national patrimony yet jazz never receives the
r e s p e c t it merits on a national stage. The global corporations that
rule daily life have once again missed the bus.

IN THE FEB. 6 ISSUE: One of the true legends of the industry is EMI Jazz and Classics president Bruce Lundvall. Tapped to preside over the resuscitation of Blue Note in the 1980's, Lundvall has been at the label's helm during three decades of growth and success. This week, Lundvall sits down with music editor Tad Hendrickson for Part One of a two part Q&A, touching this week on radio and recent signings at the label. In the news, Berklee celebrates its 60th with a gala concert that included some surprising get togethers; at Jazz at Lincoln Center, the Afro-Latin Jazz Orchestra is embarking on a tour and jazz meets classical at Rose Hall; JAI announces the winners of its 'Jazz on Campus' contest; and we catch you up around the industry with the latest news in brief. Reviews this week include the latest from venerable saxman David "Fathead" Newman, organ trios from Tony Monaco and drummer André Ceccarelli (with Joey DeFrancesco and Biréli Lagrène), singer Nicole !
 Pasternak, and the latest from Monk's Music Trio, this time with a pair of trombonists along for the journey.
