What a journey! 25 years ago, Sheldon Meyer of Oxford University Press asked me to write a single-volume history of jazz—what a task! It's now sold hundreds of thousands of copies, but I've kept updating & improving. Today, the 3rd edition is released. https://t.co/wYBcEd2Sgs https://t.co/3nsvwIzFjV

If you’re driving through San Francisco with danger at every turn, you really need a Lalo Schifrin jazz film score playing in the background (from Bullitt, 1968). https://t.co/BAIiCY0K17

Variety publishes attacks on Apple from "multiple industry sources"—questioning claims that it pays twice the royalties as Spotify. https://t.co/PkARIIqG6I It's tells you much about the music biz that people who know the details of streaming payouts won't speak on the record.
