Jazz: reignited

February 15, 2011


Ok, so WE know that jazz has always been here…and that it’s absolutely the best form of musical expression in the world. (Did we ever doubt that?) Seems though that the rest of the nation is finally catching on.

She's a baddddd girl!

Case in point: The “Oh-no!-she-didn’t-snatch-that-Grammy-away-from Justin-Bieber!” fan-tabulous Esperanza Spalding’s win over the teen throbber! Who wasn’t moved by that? What jazz lover didn’t feel pride as Spalding gracefully accepted the award, much to the dismay of crying teens everywhere.

So today we feel pride and dignity and appreciation toward a panel of people (whoever they are) who (obviously) realized that jazz is an important and formidable presence in American society (which WE always knew!).

So glad they finally figured it out.
