I have read the various comments that started with Wynton being on ABCs'
First off I want to say that nobody could speak about his NEW release on
BLUE NOTE other than Wynton unless it was Bruce Lundvall. All the
television presence this week and into the weekend is the result of the new
CD. I am pleased they have seen it worthy of publicity for the public
through the mass communications media.
Now on a second note the idea of persons who could be good spokesperson is
an entirely different concept.
I guess I have no fault with any of the names mentioned other than I don't
think Nora Jones could stand up to impromptu questions in the media and to
me that is the real test of someone being capable to representing. I would
like to add a few names that I believe could answer questions and getting
viewing time. These are names I have not seen previously mentioned.
