Today

As we all know there are no live gigs taking place in the immediate future. However, any links to jazz streaming that are deemed suitable - i.e. with a professional approach - will be considered for posting.

Janet Cook dies and possibly Jazz Journal with her.

Eddie Cook, former editor of Jazz Journal - a publication that has ran since 1948 - announces that, with the death of his wife and current editor Janet, the February issue of the magazine will be the last one.
The magazine was unique in having only three editors in its 60 year history - founder, the late Sinclair Traill being the first.
Although often derided for being too staid, the publication was, nevertheless, universally regarded as being printed on tablets of stone and few jazz fans didn't subscribe at some point in their life.
Every jazz writer of merit contributed at least once whilst scribes such as Steve Voce and Stanley Dance were, across the years, irrevocably linked to its pages.
It is hoped that someone or several will come forward and take over.
Janet Cook died on January 23.
