 Congratulation to them all. It's a great honor to be sure.

Now that I understand there is a "campaign" aspect to being selected, 
doesn't make Ramsey freakin' Lewis' inclusion any less strange and out of 
place. In fact his addition as a pianist in the company of those who preceed 
him is a sham, plain & simple.

Ramsey Lewis joins:
Basie
Teddy Wilson
Jay McShann
Barry Harris
Hank Jones
Ahmad Jamal
Horace Silver
Dave Brubeck
Tommy Flanagan
Marian McPartland
John Lewis
McCoy
Herbie
Chick
Shirley Horn


There are times when I'm not the most PC person in the world, and now is one 
of them.

Even among this year's entries doesn't his name seem out of place? I mean, 
how would one introduce this guy to an audience? Whatever it is they'll come 
up with he's going to sound way better than the actual results. "As a long 
time champion of mostly middle of the road offerings, and as the long time 
host on BET, behind some of the softest stuff on the planet, and let's not 
forget his own multi-decade career on piano ocassionally playing a few 
things that were *nice*, and oh BTW, as one of the darlings of PBS/PRI had 
one hell of a campaign............."

Masters of Jazz

The big-band leader Toshiko Akiyoshi, the pianist
Ramsey Lewis and the vocalist Jimmy Scott are among
seven musicians who have been designated Jazz Masters,
the nation’s highest jazz honor, by the National
Endowment for the Arts, The Associated Press reported.
The others are the hard-bop trombonist Curtis Fuller;
the tenor saxophonist and influential flutist Frank
Wess; the alto saxophonist Phil Woods, who was honored
in the composer-arranger category; and Dan
Morgenstern, director of the Institute of Jazz Studies
at Rutgers University, who was chosen in the jazz
advocacy category. They are to receive their awards,
including a $25,000 fellowship, at a ceremony and
concert on Jan. 12 in New York.
