MJF/52



I'm reporting on the Monterey Jazz Festival for jazz.com,
tweeting at twitter.com/bebopified (I'm mainly doing this for Howard Mandel's #jazzlives effort), and writing a festival wrap-up for jazzpolice.com when I return. (The wrap-up will feature John's pictures.) Day One at Monterey is here if not on the jazz.com home page.

And just when I think I'm working too hard, I find the Jazz Observer, a site written by jazz journalist and broadcaster Forrest Dylan Bryant, who's actually blogging from the festival and turning in great stories on the spot. I keep looking around for a guy with a laptop.

  1. I keep looking for you too! We seem to go to a completely different set of shows, and that's the miraculous thing about an event like the Monterey Jazz Festival: you could spread this music across two or three festivals, and all would be first-rate. Loving the tweets and jazz.com coverage!
