Recommended Blogs

Links to two Blogs I visit regularly are now posted at SloaneView. Rifftides belongs to prolific journalist Doug Ramsey. Taken directly from his site, the following blurb provides valuable information about the gentleman:

"...Doug Ramsey lives in the Pacific Northwest, where he settled following a career in print and broadcast journalism in cities including New York, New Orleans, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Seattle, Portland, San Antonio, Cleveland and Washington, DC. His writing about jazz has paralleled his life in journalism.

Doug's most recent book is Take Five: The Public and Private Lives of Paul Desmond.He is also the author of Jazz Matters: Reflections on the Music and Some of its Makers. He contributed to The Oxford Companion to Jazz and co-edited Journalism Ethics: Why Change? His next book is a novel that has almost nothing to do with music."

Devra Hall's Blog "DevraDoWrite" is a running commentary on "Music, books, good works and other reasons for living." Devra is the daughter of renowned jazz guitarist Jim Hall, and she is married to legendary musician/talent agent John Levy, the man who successfully guided the careers of many famous jazz artists including Cannonball Adderly, Joe Williams and Nancy Wilson.
