Mr. P.C.

Inspired by the cutting edge advice of Abigail Van Buren, the storied bass playing of Paul Chambers, and the need for a Politically Correct doctrine for navigating the minefields of jazz etiquette, I humbly offer my services.

About Me

Throughout my life, whenever I've found myself confounded by an unforeseen obstacle, I've found solace and direction from three spiritual forces:

The all-knowing and unerring Personal Consultants, led by Abigail Van Buren, Judith Martin, and Emily Post, pillars of truth and wisdom;

The deep, soul-stirring swing of Paul Chambers, particularly his definitive late 1950s work with John Coltrane;

The creative, comprehensive and unwavering theology of Political Correctness.

It was inevitable that I would someday meld these defining influences into my own spiritual vision. I was reborn, and with a new name, divinely inspired: Mr. P.C..

Aided by my literary mentor and fellow Seattleite, Bill Anschell, I'm dedicated to sharing this P.C. worldview with my jazz brethren. I seek no more than to be a vessel, so the guiding light of my inspirational forces might pour through me and illuminate the path to proper jazz decorum for all.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
