A Note of Thanks

Just a note to thank to all my new friends who came to my jazz history lectures on the Queen Mary 2 as part of the 2nd Cunard/Blue Note Jazz at Sea transatlantic crossing this past week (Aug. 1-9), featuring the brilliant Herbie Hancock Quintet!  It was such a pleasure to meet so many jazz fans – and maybe to inspire some new ones. I was especially gratified by your enthusiasm and spontaneous applause for the great jazz artists whose music we enjoyed together.

boswell-1I’ll soon be sharing playlists from my talks, “Jazz Piano – A Brief History” (Parts 1&2) and “The Great Jazz Singers” (Parts 1&2 ) here on my website, so that you can find all those great video and audio clips easily; and I’ll post some recommendations for additional listening.
