"I guess the point of this is to get us to THINK"

THAT is precisely the point of this exercise.  It is to get us to think
outside the box and away from making the same the obvious, rote, lazy
and routine choices.  Can we find some hosts that aren't musicians yet
love the music and interface with the mainstream population that doesn't
know that jazz exists?  This is how you grow attention and audience for
what we do and it is what we need to ponder.

Ed you picked up exactly on my vibe on DK.  She(DK) is a player,
appreciates and understands the music and does have photo appeal.  She
is
very shy though.
Her reference for Nat King Cole and Frank Sinatra help me know she could
represent    I am of the opinion that if some of these movie types were
asked technical questions in interviews they might not be able to
represent
like a DK, Quincy or Billy Taylor, Branford, Harry, Charlap,
Schaap,Wynton
or Benson..  This is a mute question any way becuase there will NEVER be
a
national spokesperson and we are so fragmented if we could have such we
could never agree.  I guess the point of this is to get us to THINK.
