Did I mention that my best friend and jazz critic, among other hats like Frank O’Connor scholar, W.B. Yeats aficionado, and friend of the Maxwell’s, Michael Steinman, started up a blog a few months ago? He’s on the move now, road-trekkin, with his lovely lady, Lorna Sass, for a spell this summer, but not to worry, the blog is still hot off the press! Enjoy responsibly, please.
