One of the great writers on jazz; broadcaster, journalist, archivist, compiler, preserver. His dedication to the form, his comprehensive understanding of it, his wonderful ear, and his ability to research and immerse himself in the lives of his subjects is what makes his writing so excellent. P.S. He owned 30,000 albums. YEAH! Via the New York Times.
