Well. What a difference a contagion makes: I’m in my third week of working my day gig from home, and since Siena College – and, by extension, WVCR – is in Lockdown Mode until (possibly) mid-May, “Jazz2K @ The Saint” is on hiatus. It could be worse, I suppose. I’m healthy (Knock on wood), I’m employed, and I have enough toilet paper to last me until mid-Summer.
Unfortunately, one of my great joys in life was being able to turn people on to 21st-century jazz once a week, and that’s not happening from an audio standpoint for the foreseeable future. The thing is, though, before I got back into radio seven years ago, I spread my musical gospel via web sites like albanyjazz.com, All About Jazz, and State of Mind. So why not do that now? Why not do that here? So, get ready to make some notes, as we begin a weekly date with the present (and future) of my favorite music in the universe.
