>> Peeps,

>> There is room for all kinds of jazz presentations on the radio. Wynton is

>> Who remembers that splendid series "Marsalis On Music"?  I'm sure without
>> even listening to the XM show it's good.  I also enjoy Jae Sinnett 
>> breaking
>> the music down for us all on this list giving us the working jazz 
>> musician's
>> point of view.  It makes us all better if we come to this wisdom with an
>> open heart and mind.  If we choose to listen.  In fact, we need more of 
>> this
>> kind of discourse.
>>
>>  I wasn't too far off the mark with my assertion in my initial post that
>> many jazz people are resentful of all the attention that Wynton receives 
>> as
>> illustrated by the venom I've seen on many of these recent posts.  I'm 
>> not
>> surprised.  Regardless of how you feel about Wynton, his voice is vital,
>> intelligent and necessary and there are few of us who do it better.  I 
>> love
>> his new recording.  What he is saying in this recording is important for
>> everyone to listen to.  His engagement is a result of his love of life 
>> long
>> learning and sharing and is at a very high level.  Who remembers his 
>> "open
>> letter" after the New Orleans/Katrina disaster?  I didn't see any 
>> naysayers
>> in the group or anywhere for that matter.  His convictions are strong
>> because he is strong and that may put some people off.  I don't agree 
>> with
>> all of his views (so be it) but he is our generations greatest ambassador
>> for this music.  We still need more advocates and from many areas of our
>> culture, not just jazz based advocates and not just Wynton.
>>
>> Keep on doing your thing Wynton.  You're very good at it.

>> Aloha,
