THE JAZZ SESSION

******************************************************

TJS EXTRA #2: JAZZ WRITER DOUG RAMSEY. TJS Extra looks at jazz from  
other angles. Think of it as a companion piece to The Jazz Session.  
On this edition, Jason Crane interviews jazz writer Doug Ramsey.  
Ramsey is a broadcast and print journalist with an extensive  
background in jazz writing. He is the author of several books,  
including Take Five: The Public and Private Lives of Paul Desmond,  
for which he won an ASCAP Deems Taylor Award. He has contributed to  
JazzTimes since 1975 and, before that, wrote regularly for Down Beat.  
He now runs the excellent jazz blog Rifftides. In this interview,  
Ramsey talks about Paul Desmond, the role of the jazz writer, and  
enjoyment in lieu of money.
