Barry on Jazz and Singing

Barry writes an interesting piece on why vocalists are oft maligned, specifically among Jazz players, but also among the music community at large. While you’re there, he’s got a good bit on Independence Day: “…wherever you are on this globe, raise a toast to those remarkable people who daringly called some things self-evident that are not self-evident at all. We all owe them.” (Also bug him to get an XML feed set up!)
