I note that Lowery's comments led to a prolonged standing ovation from the audience of some 10,000....
not unlike the reaction to Bill Clinton, who pointedly noted Hurricane Katrina.
(also interesting was Jimmy Carter's timely comments on governement spying on and wiretapping both Dr. and Mrs. King).
For some reason, the current President looked uncomfortable.
Timely to play Larry Goldings' new recording of We Shall Overcome...(jazz content).

If you haven't yet seen today's funeral service for Coretta Scott King,
please do yourself a favor and catch a repeat on C-SPAN.  One of the most
poignant speakers was Rev. Joseph Lowery, President Emeritus of the
Southern Christian Leadership Conference.  A short excerpt:

"We know now there were no weapons of mass destruction over there," Lowery
said. His words were met by "oohs" and a long, loud applause. "But Coretta
knew, and we knew, there are weapons of misdirection right down here."

"Millions without health insurance, poverty abound. For war billions more,
but no more for the poor."

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.
