What about the AACM cats, or Europeans? What about Ornette - even with
his "interesting" approach to interviews?
The general media don't want that "interesting" approach, they want glib,
succinct, informed. Free-form narrative ain't for them.
As for Diana Krall, what's wrong with having someone with camera-appeal? My
guess is that she'd be very articulate on Jazz past and present, regardless
of whether you like her repertoire or presentation of it. And if good looks
and articulateness (?) get Jazz on the air and more people hearing what the
spokesperson has to say, hey, what's wrong with that?
Personally, give me Laurence Fishburne or Bill Cosby. But I'm just saying
DK wouldn't be half bad.

BOB FLORENCE LIMITED EDITION ''Eternal Licks and Grooves'': Featuring Peter
Erskine, Carl Saunders and Scott Whitfield, this all-star big band offers
